    Hotel Service That Goes The Extra Miles


    I have been a regular to Thien Thao Hotel but each time was merely on business. Thien Thao has always strike me as a friendly hotel as the staff will always smile and tried their best to help me whenever I needed them. As I got to know the management, Kevin and Thao - I begin to understand where their staff great attitude came from. My most recent stay in Thien Thao was with my family as I decided to bring my family there for a 1 week holiday. We had 2 tours arranged by Thien Thao - Mr Kevin and it had exceeded my expectation. My family had so much fun and they truly enjoy this holiday because we felt we are among friends when we are there. Thanks to Kevin and his staff. Well done Thien Thao. Looking forward to more visits and stay there in the future.

Teeth Whitening

by haleysmith

Is anyone able to tell me whether teeth whitening in Vietnam is reliable and safe and effective? We will be spending 3 days in HCMC and wondered if anyone can recommend a dentist. Many thanks for your help in advance.

I found this on internet thinking it may help you get an idea of teeth whitening in Ho Chi Minh city (Vietnam). These people are from Australia and they had their teeth done in Sai Gon. Just copy and paste the link below to the address bar:


Re: Teeth Whitening

Almost all private dental clinic will have the most updated equipment to do an impressive job on whitening teeth, so I don't think you necessarily worry about a well recommended dentist. The technique they use is common: laser or using whitening gel or combination of both. I myself tried both laser and whitening gel. and I'd say laser is a waste of money because using whitening gel for a week is way more effective and cheaper than laser technique. Usually they will talk you into laser, but stand firm on your ground!
Minh Khai Dental clinic has been in Saigon for almost a decade and never change their location, which means their business has been very stable to afford running costs. So you might find it more 'reliable' than others.
here is their website

I'm a Vietnamese guy and I can be sure that it really is reliable and effective. If don't believe, you can come to some super markets around your staying place to pick up some made from Usa or international Toothpaste
If you are in Ho Chi Minh City, just drop me a call and I might help you in case I'm available. Contact me!

Travel Tips for Ho Chi Minh City

Visa to Vietnam

by MikeAtSea

Any foreigner needs a visa to enter Vietnam except if a visa waiver agreement is in place.
I found one of the easiest ways to apply for the visa is in advance on the web link below. A letter of guarantee will be send to you and then the visa will be issued on arrival in Vietnam.

Meeting Locals

by Unknownsu

Although some Ho Chi Minh residents lead a strenuous and demanding life, they are incredibly outgoing and are very approachable. For the single male travelers out there, Vietnamese ladies are more than willing to make friends from different parts of the world but the trickiest obstacle still remains with the language barrier. During my visit, I must've met over 100 people and if I weren't such a shy person, i could've easily doubled that figure so when in need of company (in a friendly way, of course), never hesitate to say 'Hello'. The lucky man in the photo is ME! Yup, a total of 7 sweet ladies saw me off at 7 in the morning. I know I don't deserve it but I would like to show my appreciation to those who thought I was worthy....^_^

Talking Politics

by bpacker

Though Vietnam seems like any thriving capitalist city in asia, it is still a communist country by heart. You'll see propaganda pictures and policemen everywhere, even in places like Apocalypse Now ( A Happening Night Spot Frequented by Tourists and Yuppies)
Needless to say , talking about politics is a no-no but asking about Uncle Ho is fine. The old chappie is seen everywhere on posters and sculptures and he's usually posing with kids.

Colourful religion

by Willettsworld

The capital of the same-named province, Tay Ninh is situated 95km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City and is the original home of the Cao Dai religion which has around 3 million adherents in Southern Vietnam. Tay Ninh is home to the Cao Dai Great Temple, built between 1933 and 1955, which sits a few kilometres outside of the town.

A rather garish meld of styles and influences, the temple is dominated by the divine eye which is the religion's representation of God - for those who are curious, it's a left eye. The temple is done out in hues of pink and baby blues, with a brilliant interior bedecked with eight grandiose pillars wrapped with writhing dragons, and a clouded pastel blue sky that wouldn't be out of place in a Vegas casino - you really have to see the place to believe it! The faith has built temples all over the region, especially in the Mekong Delta, but this is the biggest, brightest and the best. I went on a tour with the Sinh Cafe whose offices are in the Pham Ngu Lao backpackers area of Ho Chi Minh City and it cost me 136,000 VND (about $8 includes lunch) which also included a trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels in the afternoon. The tour visits the temple in order to witness the mid-day mass.

For more information, pictures and video of the mid-day mass, why not visit my Tay Ninh page below:

Fresh Gourmet Chocolates in HCMC

by iclee about Boniva Chocolatier

Am a chocoholic! That's it. I am unashamed in admitting my addiction to the dark brown piece of heaven. :)

So, I make sure to research the local chocolatier even before I land in a place. HCMC was a bit different since I only chanced upon this small shop while walking along my tour route along Le Loi street. As usual, I prefer buying from local chocolatiers before going to 5star hotels as my last resort.

It was filled with chocolates wrapped in bright colored foils and rows of fresh molded theobromas inside their glass counter. They even have Easter themed ones in keeping with the season.

I was already imagining the pleasure of popping a tropical fruit infused chocolate bit as soon as I saw the flavors. Strawberry, Bailey's, Cointreau, and Dark shared the spotlight with Durian and Coconut. Liquer infused ones go for VND120,000/100gms (U$1 = VND17,700) while the others are little cheaper at VND90,000/100gms. So, that is approximately PHP352 or $6.80 for the liquer ones. Not exactly bad if you are craving for freshly made chocolates in District 1 of HCMC.

I've tried the ones from Sheraton Hotel but I can tell that they have been chilled ergo not sure how long they have been in the chiller. :) If you appreciate durian or coconut then do not pass by without sampling one. :) VND90,000/100 grams
