Time to leave District 1 Hotel for International Airport

by bibini

Hi, if my international flight is departing at 1725, what time must I leave my hotel which is in district 1? Thanks

The hotel staff at the front or concierge desks (if they have one) can probably best advise you. I'd suggest asking them when you check in? They may also be aware of any current road closures or other temporary issues which may cause delays.

I always leave about 3 hours before the flight (my office is in D1), the roadworks on the airport road have basically finished, unless it's raining then leave early

The quickest way to travel is via a motocycle driver in HCMC as the traffic is horrendous as mentioned in the earlier response. As mentioned, ask the hotel staff for assistance, they should be able to help if you use a cab or a motocycle.

Travel Tips for Ho Chi Minh City

Need a facial after the hash traffic

by December_starlet

Dust are every where and I just happen to came across this French day spa - L'APOTHIQUAIRE on the 3rd Day and I simply feel so pampered by it. Its just across the street opposite Rex Hotel.

The simple facial cost $18USD and manicure with penicure cost only $8USD. So if you want to go for a good body massage, and day spa I highly recommend here. A lot of japanese women go there.

Airport Tax

by Unknownsu

There is a 12Usd service charge or airport improvement fee, for all international flights leaving Ho Chi Minh City. This can also be payable in Vietnamese dong which is the equivalent to 200,000. Avoid only having Canadian dollars with you, they will charge $25.

you can buy Gucci but cant afford to see a doctor!

by cochinjew

This is the new Vietnam, acculturation into the consumerist culture.. I was taken to the Diamond Shopping centre as part of the sightseeing of Saigon and I was absolutely nauseated. This is the new Viet Culture.. and the friends who took me there all had not seen a doctor or a dentist for years and it was obvious in their teeth and their eating habits and body habitus. What sort of development is this?
Most of he Viet.. young, trained at universities are eager to go to foreign countries ( I love to visit Disneyland! said One of her visit to Paris). While they save money to buy the futile symbols of westernization, they cant afford to see a doctor. so they wait till it is very late for medical attention. I saw a few younger ones in their twenties with extremely bad teeth and poor personal concepts of health.
After Cuba, this is a poor example of Public Health

You're wired!!

by muddybok

During my stay on Saigon, I took up the most day trip & overnight trips. If I’m not checking into hotels in those days away for trips, I normally deposit my luggage with the hotel which I intend to stay after the day trip.

I am glad to have one of this PacSafe where i can rest assure my luggage will be alright. Land, sea or air, you're wired for travel. No more sleepless train or bus rides, Pacsafe guards your gear for times when you just have to . . . go. The Backpacker series has been specially designed for easy harness access when you are on the move, or complete protection for safe air travel.

Tay Ninh

by keeweechic

The town of Tay Ninh, some 100 kms northwest of Saigon, is the centre of the Cao Dai religion. This religion incorporates elements of Christianity, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Islam and possibly a number of other religions. The religion worships as saints such people as Sir Winston Churchill, Moses, Victor Hugo (French author) and more. The religion was founded in the 1920’s by a Vietnamese Government official.

You can go to the Great Cao Dai Cathedral (a pastel yellow, pink and blue building) and watch the mass which is held at noon every day.
