Backpacking Teacher

Travel, teaching and things in between. Saigon is the focus for now.

Some new videos taken from my iPhone – Saigon and Cambodia

with 10 comments


I hate carrying a camera around and the few times I’ve carried a video camera I found it a bit unnatural and a hindrance. Lucky for me my iPhone can take both pictures (albeit of dodgy quality as you’ll have seen elsewhere on this blog) and videos. The videos are a bit grainy but I like the fact that my video camera fits easily in my pocket.

When I take videos on my phone it uploads them to an account on a website called livecliq. I’m having a lazy (and slightly hungover) Saturday afternoon so I’ve just posted a couple of new videos there.


This one is of my apartment in Saigon’s district 7.

This one is of the temple of Beng Mealea in Cambodia that I blogged about here.

This is a video from the top of Mount Bakheng in Cambodia.

This is a street scene in Saigon.

The three coconut ladies outside the Opera House.

  3. I agree with Expat… I haven’t seen his place, but I think your apartment looks pretty swell and pretty big too! I love all the multi-colored houses / apartments in your neighborhood.

  4. it is an interesting neighbourhood … from quite poor dwellings to some wealthier ones. The streets are a bit like the Hutongs in Beijing with little shops and hairdressers and places where people line up to watch footbal games …

  5. I should add that I have my own place in the city that is quite nice, but the place the school provides is, uh, well maybe I’ll put up some photos of the place once school starts.
