I'll be bumming around in Saigon for the next week or so, and was wondering what particular things people have seen and done here they felt were worth checking out.
Failing a bit of salsa (!!!) you could always eat some of the best street (or regular) food in SE Asia, get drunk for a few dollars, and visit a load of war museums.
Sorry I can't be hugely specific, I only spent two days here.

Getting drunk for a few dollars has always been my number one priority in any new city. Salsa dancing - not so much.
Consider the drinking aspect of my trip here taken care of.
War museums are probably on the list too...
Believe it or not, even African and European ladies like a good dancer. It's a skill with world wide application. Well, almost. Minus places where Islamic nutbags rule, it has global application. No matter where I go (with that caveat) I always can find a place to dance and meet people, because we have that one thing in common. And it's fun.
Well I am a single Carrot, after all...
Usually a bit of half-ar$ed dancing in a club does the trick, but I wouldn't mind picking up some dancing skills, some time.
