works taken me to vung tau city, vietnam. vung tau is near the southern tip of vietnam, about a 2.5 hour drive from ho chi minh. and its a resourt town. our hotel is just across from the beach, and my friend tells me that some of its beaches about 40 mins away from the city where work has taken us, is absolutely beautiful.
we had a bit of a scare upon arriving at ho chi minh airport. the hotel sent just one car, for 5 of us. And we had a whole lot of luggage, seeing that we were here for work, and when u conduct training for work- it means never travelling light. seriously, one car for 5 people? ridiculous!
hmm..vietnamese do tend to be quite small, so maybe 5 vietnamese in one car on a 2.5 hour journey would be ok, but not for us!
we had to wait, while the hotel worked it out. it took a whole hour for them to sort it out- got another taxi involved, and we were off. it was a long drive. and not very scenic. but i'm glad i'm here.
