    A 3 star hotel in the heart of the shopping and entertainment centre of Ho Chi Minh.
    30 minutes drive from airport and a 5 minute walk to Ben Thanh market.
    The hotel has restaurants and cafe's within walking distance as well as the opera house and the Vincom centre.

    Breakfast was nice with some Asian food and western food available.

Back pack in Ho Chi Minh City

by footiam

Is it safe and convenient? What's there to see and do and eat? How do you get around the city to the interesting spots?

Re: Back pack in Ho Chi Minh City

I got around the city on a Motor bike, or you can use cyclo or your legs. Have a look at peoples pages by typing in "Ho chi minh" in the Destinations top right of the page. Plenty of ideas there.

"What's there to see and do and eat?" The Vietnamese cuisine is the best in the World. And you can choose any price range. From luxury restaurant "Indochine" to small street cafes. "How do you get around the city to the interesting spots?" As mentioned above, f.x. walking.

Things to see and do: Ben Thanh markets, Cholon markets, War Remnants Museum, Re-unification Palace, Cao Dai temple, Cu Chi tunnels, Saigon River ferry cruise, local shopping at Saigon Tax cnr Nguyen Hue and Le Loi, and sitting in local cafes watching the vibrant street scenes. Eating out is all around you and the food is sensational at local stalls and cafes and at the better restaurants.

Yes, it's relatively safe.
To eat; Pho (of coarse) bun cha (from the North), bun bo hue.
To get around just use a xe om (guy on a motorbike, find them EVERYWHERE) and negotiate price with him.

Travel Tips for Ho Chi Minh City

Be careful on the road!

by namidub

Mind that in HCMC,the majority of the road users are motorcyclist.There are Thousands if not millions of them on the road every now and then.They wear no helmets,they dont follow the traffic rules,no separate lanes for direction (although available but never been followed) traffic lights are useless unless there's a policeman standing there.

Watch at the roundabout how everyone goes crazy. The local guide told me that if you're a local then you might consider only motorbike as your primary transport cuz the local ladies opt for men with motorbike rather than with car.
Reason why? Car travel slowly

And one of the reason there are still so many motorcyclist on the road even at night is because they wanted to feel to cold breeze air when they ride the bike as their home is not air-conditioned.

VND (Vietnamese Dong) Currency!

by machomikemd

The Vietnamese Dong (VND) is the official currency in Vietnam.
Exchange rate is approximatley 1 USD = 15,000 Dong

Bank notes currently in circulation are in denominations of 100 / 200 / 500 / 1,000 / 2,000 / 5,000 / 10,000 / 20,000 and 50,000 Dong

Notes under 200 Dong have little value and are rarely used.

The U.S. dollar is more or less a second currency in Vietnam. Other foreign currencies are not readily accepted. A large supply of US$1, US$5 and US$10 are almost essential for tipping, for small expenses and for hotel bills. U.S. money is so common that change will frequently be given in dollars.

You may bring in an unlimited amount of foreign currency as long as it is declared on the forms provided by customs officers. Foreign currency can be exchanged for dong at your hotel or at the State Bank of Vietnam.

Saigon and Communism

by tampa_shawn

Even with the free enterprise in Saigon, Vietnam is still a communist country and if you look you will see evidence of this. The Government of Vietnam posts bill boards everywhere giving messages to its citizens. Some of the bill boards just say to be a good citizen, where others talk about family commitment, getting regular immunizations for children or warn about AIDs.

Pictured here...one sign with several messages

See you at the SEA Games!!!

by shrimp56

The 22nd Annual SEA Games were in full swing while we were in Saigon. SEA = South East Asia. The actual venues were in Hanoi, but you could have fooled us from all the excitement there was going on around us!

Cao Dai Temple in My Tho

by keeweechic

We passed this one heading down to the Mekong Delta. The Cao Dai religion is indigenous to Vietnam and is quite fascinating. Every aspect of Cao Daism reflects the fusion of Eastern and Western philosophies.

Respected so called 'saints' of the Cao Dai include Joan of Arc, Rene Descartes, William Shakespeare, Victor Hugo, Louis Pasteur, and Lenin.

Location : My Tho
