On this final leg back to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), we departed Dong Xoai on Road 741.  Road 741 goes through the towns of Tan Phu, Phuoc Vinh, and Thu Dau Mot, all of which are small towns.  With the exception of a small stretch of road outside Dong Xoai (10% grade), Road 741 is relatively flat.  The riding condition on this day is fast pace, since there are no inclines to slow the bikes down.  In Thu Dau Mot at the So Sao intersection, we took Highway 13 that leads us into Saigon.  This road is multi-lane and is much wider than the lanes on Road 741.  Here, the amount of motorist appeared to increased multi-fold as everyone is converging into the metropolis.   After many days of biking together and sharing in the comraderie, the journey has reached its final destination.  We have come full circle and made it back to Saigon.
