If you can get the fare at $1000, go for it. From Washington D.C. at anytime is always way over $1000.

The lowest fare I've found is offered in Apr, at about 1,100$.

Why don't you walk into a travel agency where they will have all the airfares at their finger tips and will be able to answer all your questions, try an ethnic agency in your area.

For $852.00 one can fly on Korean Air, in October, to Ho Chi Minh.

I suggest you look at EVA Air via Taipei since they have brand new service from YYZ. I flew them last trip and the price was excellent - $706. from San Fran. I have noticed that flights originating in Canada do tend to be a little higher - you might try pricing from the States (Chicago or NYC). Try the airfare search engine momondo.com - very good and it shows all the options.

That's a great price $825, book it Dano. Anytime the fares are below $1000 from the east coast to the far east it is time to start packing. Delta is ready whenever you are. I get about 15,000 air miles and a domestic rt tickets are 20,000 miles, so remember to collect your air miles. The cheapest I have ever found IAD>BKK was 585USD back in 2004, but the prices have been on a steady rise and stable at a grand and up. I use HKG as a hub where tickets are cheaper (735USD rt 11/09) and find flights to other Far East countries with budget airlines for 100USD each way. That way, I can tour other countries along the way. In Europe I do the same using London as a hub, and budget airlines to European countries. You can only do this as a budget traveler and have time.

Travel Tips for Ho Chi Minh City

Drinking with the locals

by Blatherwick

Often locals, and cyclo/moto drivers in particular, will invite you over to share some Bia Hoi (Draft Beer). It is usually around $0.20 a picture of beer and it isn't that bad. Be careful though. The Vietnamese can really put them away. They also play this game of saying "cheers" and downing half the glass. It goes simply like this: "Yeoh, 50 percent!" You then down half your beer. This can make you drunk very fast.

Remove your shoes

by keeweechic

Remove your shoes before entering Buddhist pagodas. Small donations placed in the boxes found in temples are appreciated. It is acceptable to keep your shoes on within Chinese pagodas. Never let the soles of your feet face other people or any sacred monument, such as a statue of Buddha..

Chua Vinh Nghiem (temple)

by anoum

I was actually looking for a tall pagoda with many golden Buddha statues that look over HCM but the clerk at Sapaco misunderstood and gave me directions to this temple. It is popularly visited by the locals.

It is at the Hai Ba Trung Str. that leads from the airport. If you come from the airport, it is on the right side after a bridge. From the city, it is on the left.

I went there by No.4 (green coloured) bus which I took from Ben Thanh Market bus station. The conductor could not speak English but when I showed her the written name of the temple, she nodded and later, stopped the bus right opposite the temple. The bus fare was just 2,000 Dong one-way. To go back to the city, wait at the bus stop 5 mins walk away, at the right side of the temple as you come out.

Although there doesn't seem to be much to look at from the outside, in the upper level hall, there are many beautiful Buddha statues & decorations that were a mixture of Vietnamese-Thai. When I was there, I saw a pair of giant candles, about 3 metres high (see the photo). A worker was also getting ready the place for mass chanting. Unfortunately I couldn't ask him when it would be held.

At the back of the hall, there are altars for the tablets of the dead. I like to check out these things as they are different from those found in temples and Chinese associations in Malaysia.

Saigon for fashionistas!

by JohanIsWeg

Dong Khoi Street is widely regarded as the crème de la crème of Saigon shopping. From Lam Son Square, with its collections of tablecloths and napkins, to the exclusive custom-made silk garments from the many boutiques that line Dong Khoi, it is a shopper’s paradise.

Other products of note include jewellery, ceramics, antiques, lacquer ware, fine art and furniture. While prices are on the higher side, there is no doubting the quality. Tailors may also be prepared to custom-make items for you, depending on time availability.

The many coffee shops make shopping Dong Khoi Street and the branching alleyways a pleasure.
