    Which bit is holiday?

    Two pieces of Tumi luggage, are you sure you’re not Japanese?

    the first portion – Vietnam

    Tumi – I’m quite sure I’m not Japanese. I think they’d use those wheelie things with the four spinning wheels. I dropped so many name brands in the posts, it was almost like I was WoAi.

    You stopping in Pham Ngu Lao?

    Everyone in our Japanese office has a Tumi laptop bag.

    Yeah, this was all a bit Woai, except for the bit where you mentioned cheap jeans from H&M, Woai wouldn’t be seen dead in them..

    Just Saigon and Ho Chi Minh City – maybe out to the tunnels for a day trip. It’ll really just be a city break. Take a break from the rapid pace of Shanghai with some time in the rapid pace of Saigon.

    I am obviously not Japanese, since my laptop bag is made by Tumbuk2.
