Ho Chi Minh city, formerly Saigon, is located in the south of Vietnam. Lou had no real reason or intention for coming here other than because I wanted to. And why did I want to come to Vietnam? The episode of Top Gear I had watched some 8 years prior still filled my head with imagery of what a beautiful country Vietnam must be – I loved watching the presenters fool around on bikes whilst creating a very memorable road trip. Unlike Lou, who will research a destination, chat to Airbnb hosts and check out activities, I decided to provide some counterbalance. I did nothing. We would just turn up and figure it all out in true Top Gear style.
