Travel Tips for Ho Chi Minh City

by another name.....

by davecallahan

Ho Chi Minh City has had several names in its interesting history.

At one time it was Prey Nokor ("forest empire/city" in the Khmer language) with reference to its jungle surroundings.
Some experts think that there was a predecessor to this name and it was Prey Kor.
Refugees from the north settled here and named it Sai Gon (Vietnames for dense forestland).
The French colonized it and called it Gia Dinh (but later reverted to the people's usage of Saigon).
After the Vietnamese won the war against the Americans, the name was changed to Ho Chi Minh City in honor of that famous North Vietnam leader.

Fever of unknown etiology

by Nemorino

--

My second visit to Saigon was because of illness. Since the medics at Phước Vĩnh couldn't figure out what was wrong with me, they sent me to the U.S. Navy hospital in Saigon, where the doctors diagnosed my illness as a "fever of unknown etiology" -- meaning they didn't know, either.

This was where I learned the word etiology, meaning cause or origin.

In a letter dated September 19, 1964, I wrote:

Since Tuesday I have been moldering here in the U.S. Navy hospital in Saigon with some exotic tropical disease that seems not (at least in my case) to be any more terrifying than a 48-hour head- and stomach-ache. Whatever it was, it's no longer with me, so I should be getting out of here tomorrow.

-- After leaving the hospital I spent one night at the Hôtel des Nations, which I remember nothing about, and then flew back to Phước Vĩnh on September 22, 1964.

GLOVES

by stevemt

This is something that would go un-noticed by the locals and possibly many asians in general, but to anyone european, it is something totally unusual.

Many of the women over there wear above elbow length gloves when riding a bike (motorised or push). The come in many hues, but all long virtually covering the upper arm totally.

For most europeans this is something you would only see on the society ballroom floor of yesteryear, but I guess its something to do with protection from the sun.

It is just something that caught my eye in a big way.

DENIM

by stevemt

Just a suggestion. Something I will never do again is wear denim (either jeans or shorts) while on trips that require any type of excerise. You sweat, and it gets wet and does not dry. Chafes a hell of a lot and is not pleasant in the heat. Denim is fine for evening when you are not doing a lot physically, but for daytime wear I would opt for light cotton or board short type fabric. - Just my thoughts on this. This is up to you. Digital is wonderful, and more convenient, but Film (SLR) gives far better picture quality and colour quality (unless you have a digital SLR which I hope to get soon)

Viet Pho across the War Remnant Musuem

by xuessium

There is this little discreet stall just across the War Remnant Museum, selling Viet Pho (glass noodles). Give it a try. A bowl of pork noodles, with yoghurt does not cost you more than 5000dongs (about US$0.40) Delicious!
Note: The stall owners do not really speak English, so try your luck! This is real Vietnamese street fare.
