I think Elios hotel is a good choice. It is a very nice 3 star hotel and the price is reasonable. In compare with the Liberty, it is better and more beautiful.
There is also a budget hotel called Spring House Hotel which is near the Elios. This is 2 star hotel only but the room is quite nice. The service cannot be compared with the mentioned ones but it is cheap and also located on the main street.
You can use the following websites to check the hotels:
www.hotels-in-vietnam.com (They list hotels by location too so it is easy for you to know what hotels are located on Pham Ngu Lao)
www.vietnamhotels.org.vn (They do not list hotels by specific locations but you can send your requests to hotels)

Hope this helps!

This is a great guest house smack in the middle of the action. Breakfast is great and the staff are absolutely delightful. The rooms are spotless. They only drawback is there is no elevator so ask for a room on the lower floors I think it is $20 per night.

I suggest one of these:
Blue River Hotel (blueriver1126@yahoo.com)
Hong Han Hotel (Honghan_guesthouse@yahoo.com)
Bich Duyen Hotel (bichduyenhotel@yahoo.com)

see http://www.blueriverhotel.com/ for a map of the area (I know of none right on PNL - many places on the alley behind it - like Blue River and Bich Duyen)

Bich Duyen is an outstanding hotel. Not only is it smack bang in the middle of the backpacker area, it is conveniently located in a little side alley to keep the noise down!

Travel Tips for Ho Chi Minh City

precariously clutching the seat of my driver’s?!

by richiecdisc

One thing you have to do when in Saigon is to try some of the marvelous local foods. It may be a modern city, but there are lots of very local and authentic eating places scattered all over the city. Wander around and if something looks good, have a bite to eat. Though precariously clutching the seat of my driver’s motorcycle, I felt finally free: of Saigon’s grime and sweat that masked my own skin but more importantly of the disappointment of ill-conceived expectations that Vietnam had not lived up to. This two-month tour of Southeast Asia had originally stemmed from the desire to experience first hand what all the fuss was about Vietnam. Laos and Cambodia were initially afterthoughts.

What was never anticipated was just how much the easygoing nature of travel in Laos would influence how I initially perceived Vietnam. Perhaps if our first port of call had been Saigon, things would have been different but after two carefree weeks in Laos, we were dropped on the doorstep of what seemed at the time, a very unfriendly Hanoi. It wasn’t until two weeks into the Vietnamese segment of our trip that we finally began to enjoy it. Things were not perfect in Hoi An and Na Trang but the nine-day TET induced stint in Hanoi finally became just an interesting memory rather than something we could not wait to escape from.

But it was in Saigon that it all came together. Oddly enough, it is perhaps the least interesting city in Vietnam with regard to sights. But what it lacks in this department, it more than makes up for with a fantastic array of foods and more importantly, a friendly population that has grown up with a burgeoning tourist trade and hence knows how to treat it without appearing self-conscious. It does not take long to see that the south of the country has been in the tourist business longer and this trickles down to the locals as well. The people are more used to foreigners and are more welcoming. (continued below in Fondest Memory)

Local fruits

by SirRichard

You will find many strange local fruits here: lychee, papaya, jackfruit?
But the weirdest of them all was the DURIAN, a very large fruti, the size of a football ball, all covered with sharp spikes. It is said to be the tastiest of all (I didn? try it) but it smells like hell!! Once U open it, the smell is so disgusting that is even forbidden in public places like hotels, planes, buses? it is said it would be imposible to remain in a, let?s say, bus all the traject after one of these durians has been opened inside?

If you're female, don't touch the monks!

by TravelChick67

If you see a gouping of monks walking about the city in their brightly colored saffron robes, odds are they are on an alms round. They take their alms bowls to receive "dana" (food offerings) from citizens in the city.

Anyone can offer dana to the monks but if you are a woman, be very careful not to touch the monk. It is strictly forbidden for monks to touch women.

Beautiful Gardens

by keeweechic

After the big lunch they serve you can wander around the beautiful gardens. There are many fruit trees and flowers and a couple of caged monkeys who are obviously well used to tourist and perform accordingly.

Location : Thoi Son (Phung Islands), Mekong Delta
