Travel Notes: Also known by its former name "Saigon," this big city of motorbikes, cars, hotels, and buildings boasts many cafes for Vietnamese and international cuisine, some of which are vegan-friendly. Remember to ask the restaurants to leave out the MSG if you are sensitive. Try some exotic fruits, fresh sweet young coconuts, and fresh pastries while you're there!
