April 12th-13th: Saigon
Chaplin’s movements in Indochina are hard to pinpoint so please bear with me over the next couple of weeks. I will try to be as accurate as possible.
Arriving aboard the Aramis on the 12th, Charlie and his companions spent a couple of days in Saigon (aka Ho Chi Minh City), staying at the Hotel Continental, before setting off on a road trip across Vietnam & Cambodia. Their first destination is Angkor Wat, the ancient temple, but they will take their time getting there.
Watch this space for more in Day By Day: 1936, in which I document one year of Chaplin’s life.
