I just finished watching the whole thing, and was surprised to find our bridge in Cai Be!

See, what did I say  ? ? ?   :snicker:

It's was too blurry there to find it with GE.  But we looked.

OK. There are 2 bus stops near the bridge of Mai and Oliver.

7. Bệnh viện TW Huế http://wikimapia.org/437084/Hue-Central-Hospital
8. Quốc Học http://wikimapia.org/5010565/Huế-high-school

and then they can go to:

18. Lăng Khải Định http://wikimapia.org/8768415/Emperor-KHẢI-ĐỊNH-mausoleum

Peach, just for you, what new things I have learned about the next two flights Saigon to Hue (SGN to HUI):

VN252 has a different schedule on Sundays(May 25), so it flies 1330 1450 instead of 1130 1250.

VN254 is 1700 1820. The two lowest performing teams are likely to be on this flight as it could be difficult to even make 1330 with release from the pitstop around noon.

Boingo, I just laughed so hard I expect the neighbors over here any second! :funny:

Thanks apskip! I think we might need those...

Banzai, what bridge do you mean please? For Mai/Oliver? Can you show me the screen cap, please? I'm a little lost...
If it is the one in the cyclo, we know that is the Perfume River ...

Is he talking to Allan Wu? If yes, then it's a pitstop.
I can't read the sign. The editor blurred it out.  :duno:

That's def the Saigon Post Office, that top one is mislabelled because one of the shots says it "has the feel of a train station".


From my transport link upstream:
Quote
By Train
The Saigon Railway Station is located in District 3 of Saigon and was constructed in the early 1930s by the French. The station links to the 2600-kilometre Vietnamese railway system that runs up and down the coast between Hanoi and Saigon. Trains on the Saigon-Hanoi line stop along the way - at Hue, Da Nang, Nha Trang and other smaller provincial cities. Tickets can be purchased at the station or from travel agents for a fee. It is advisable to book tickets in advance. The trains are not in the best of condition and train travel is slower than travelling by bus. However, they are safer for cross-country travel. It takes 36 hours from Saigon to Hanoi and 17 hours from Saigon to Danang. The trains are also much more spacious and offer you the chance to travel in comfort.

A new express service to Nha Trang reduces the journey from 12 hours to 7 hours. For more details on train timetables, you can call the Saigon Railway Station directly.

Contact Details of Saigon Railway Station:

Saigon Railway Station
1 Nguyen Thong St, Dist 3, Ho Chi Minh City

Nice!

I think it could be open of those electronic things that say the number of the ticket window? I like my pics because the "peachy" color scheme seems to match...

I see park benches. The stone kind. Is there a park near the perfume bridge?
