when we flew from there a year ago the airport got lonely that late and it looked like they didn't let people to wait throughout the night. it's not that big airport, and there's nothing to do at check in area.
drive to city is not expensive nor that far anyway, so why wait uncomofortably at airport building...

The arrivals area of HCMC airport has no seats or lounges to pass away the time. Besides, security staff might not allow you to do so. As the previous poster said, the city is just outside the terminal so you could head straight and quick to a downtown hotel as there won't be traffic when you arrive.

Do you have a hotel booked for the next day? All of the 4 and 5 star hotels are open 24/7. A few hotels in the backpack area are open late if not all night. It's a half hour ride from the airport to the backpack area at a cost of about $7 USD metered taxi. Insist on the meter or find another taxi. I would think it's possible to find Saigon hotels on the internet, and at most price ranges, that are open 24/7. Probably even just outside the airport.

Contact a guest house or hostel and they will pick you up on arrival.

Travel Tips for Ho Chi Minh City

Classic Saigon

by SirRichard

Here are 2 signs of recent Saigon's ID:
- The Continental Hotel, dating from the turn of the 19th century, scenery of a lot of scenes of the famous Graham Greene's novel The Quiet American, a real classic of the city, in spite of the awful renovation made in 1989 by "Saigon Tourist".
- Women in the classical vietnamese dress, U don't see these too often, just in few special occasions...

Têt in Saigon

4. Pedi-cabs near Tu Do Street

My fifth visit to Saigon was from January 31 to February 4, 1965.

In a letter from Saigon on February 1st I wrote:

Happy Chinese New Year --or Vietnamese New Year, as the Vietnamese call it ("Têt" in their language).

Most shops and offices will be closed for the next three days, some for a week or more. The V.C. have put out the word that they will let the people travel freely anywhere in Vietnam for the three days of Têt. The people of Saigon seem to be on their good behavior so far. They're all buying each other flowers and candy, those who can afford it, and the children begging on Tự Do Street have all learned to say "Happy New Year" in English. There has already been a coup this week, so everyone figures we'll get through the holidays without another one. "May your next child be a boy!" is the proper New Year's wish for a married woman; so our protocol experts tell us, anyway.

-- Note from 46 years later: After the reunification of Vietnam, Tự Do Street was renamed Dong Khoi Street. Tự Do means freedom, Dong Khoi was a movement that organized a series of uprisings against the South Vietnamese government in 1959-60, thus beginning the war that ended with the defeat of the Saigon government in 1975.

In French colonial times, this street was known as Rue Catinat. It was named after a French warship that took part in the French conquest of Vietnam from 1856 to 1859. The warship, in turn, was named after Nicholas Catinat (1637–1712), who was a French military commander and Marshal of France under King Louis XIV.

Visitors are definitely going...

by Dan_DeGoat

Visitors are definitely going to be totally stressed out by Vietnam's traffic. There seem to be so little pedestrian crossings, so U hafta do that stop-look-walk kerb drill thing. But the vehicles do not slow down for you!

The best tip was given by my tour guide. 'When u cross the road, either walk straight forward, or stop. Never EVER step backwards. The drivers all aim for your back.'

Yeah. Right. That means a blind man could cross the road right? Din have the guts to close my eyes and cross the road though :P

Eat Where Locals Are!

by Eurasian68

Don't be afraid to try out all kinds of yummy vietnamese dishes!

Eat where the locals are, on the streets, in the market, or just sit beside the roads!

Follow your nose and explore the famous kitchen!!!

Rip off prices at Ben Thanh Market

by KChiong about Benh Thanh

Depending on how you gotta bargain, shopping at Ben Thanh can be a ripoff. As a general thumb of rule, always bargain below half the asking price. For example, 'Adidas' polo tees should not be bought for more than 70000 dongs and 'Abercrombie' bermudas not more than 22000 dongs. You will notice than after Ben Thanh has closed, road side stalls will start to operate selling the same things mainly apparels. Theirs are much more cheaper
