This experience might be kind of unusual, but the total time we spent in less-traveled roads of Ho Chi Minh totally open our eyes to a different side of life that we never saw about Vietnam on the internet. We get the chance to fully observe the difference in lifestyle and conditions of those in the less developed communities, compared to those living in the urban areas.
This video is about the experience that we explore beyond touristy areas of Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) to observe the slum community guided by local Vietnamese and see the boundary between rich and poor here in Vietnam.
Ho Chi Minh City, also known by its former name of Saigon (Vietnamese: Sài Gòn), is the most populous city in Vietnam. Located in southeast Vietnam, the metropolis surrounds the Saigon River. From 1955 to 1975, Saigon was the capital of the Republic of Vietnam, commonly known as South Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh City is the most visited city in Vietnam, with 6.3 million visitors in 2017. Many of the city’s landmarks which are well known to international visitors include the Bến Thành Market, Ho Chi Minh City Hall, Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica of Saigon, Independence Palace and it’s a popular destination to have the day trip to Cu Chi tunnel and Mekong delta.

American and Thai Millennials left the career in military and finance to become travel story tellers, proving the world that you don’t have to be rich to travel well. Met in August, 2015 in South Korea, kicked off traveling in September, 2017 with $4000 in saving account and first started publishing our journey on the way we live the life we have always dreamt of – traveling and being able to work wherever we love ( as long as there is Wi-Fi and coffee)
☼ Currently homeless, live the life out of luggage, travel non-stop, and grow love along the way.
☼ We are deeply into traveling, doing what locals do, managing the budget to travel non-stop, challenging ourselves daily.
