Re: Vietnem trip (Ho Chin Minh City)

Just book and pay the tour one day in advance. Important is to bring the receipt on the day of tour.
Taking a cab to the tour agency will be a better choice then asking them to pick you up from the hotel.
3 stars hotel ar tourist class hotel. No point staying in 5*. It is waste of $$$.
Walking in HCMC is safe at least IMHO. Just don't place your wallet in your back pocket.
For Changing of Currency, there are banks and Western Union $$$ changer.
S$1 ~ >$11k Dong.

Re: Vietnem trip (Ho Chin Minh City)

Yeah! Have booked my flight on tigerairways! But can i just double check onsumting? Before you purchase tiger airways tickets via online, you need to key in all your particulars such as passport number, expiry date etc..
After when you purchased, they will send you an email stating the booking confirmation. However, i noticed that in the confirmation, it did not state our passport number, expiry date etc. Just indicated our names and the time of departure/arrival that's all. Is this supposed to be like that?

Yaps, tat's all will be shown on your intineries. The name must tally with your passport. And no Visa requirement for stays less that 30 days.

Btw, I going HCMC on the 13 Feb for leisure trip. When's your trip? MAybe can say hi, if happened to bump into you there.

Highly recommend Mui Ne. Their white sand dunes are impressive. It's about 4 hours from HCMC

I went last year during june and nov. Fun is depending on which part of HCMC you're going. If you've got msn, maybe can add me in and I can elaborate more there!

Re: Vietnem trip (Ho Chin Minh City)

Hi People

Just came back from HCM 3 days ago and can only say that it was a good experience. Nth really much to buy as most are paintings and handicrafts. Weather is freaking hot, the city is full of motorbikes and infact, we have mastered the techniques of crossing the road! Haha! The pho (beef or chicken) is nice and the people there are really frenly!

Had visited Unification Palace, Mekong River, Cityhall, Saigon Opera House, Ben Thanh Market, Notre Dam de Cathedral and shopping centres such as Zen Plaza, Diamond Plaza and Tax Shopping Centre.

May consider going Hanoi one day..
