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...
Strolling aimlessly in Ho Chi Minh City is what I like doing. After a while, if you are tired, you can take a cyclo anywhere with a fixed price, asking the rider to take you for one hour or half an hour. There are a lot of cyclo riders speaking English so make sure you find an English speaker who can be your guide as well.
Fondest memory: I miss the food, smiles of people, Ao Dai dress...
Hanging out and having fun with friends and relatives. It is so cheap to eat and drink and you can go out every night of the week without exception. You cannot be bored in this area.
We went to a nightclub heavily sponsored by Carlsberg Beer but I can only recommend the local brew 333
Favorite thing: At the airport waiting lounge, we saw a lot of Vietnamese buying boxes of 555 cigarettes from Changi Airport Duty free. Smoking is one of the favorite past time in HCMC.
