Travel agencies, Ho Chi Minh City
I seems to attract cheaters wherever I go... Haiz... Why me??
This time we were cheated by the travel agency...
Well, we had all our budget worked out and had separated all the monies in different envelopes so that we don't have start counting money in public..
The night before, my gf and I had counted the right amount of money to pay the travel agency and kept them in a separate compartment in her wallet... On that day, without counting the money, my gf took out the whole stack of US dollars and handed them to the lady at the counter.. The lady started counting and we were chatting away, never pay attention to her..
After counting, she told us that we shortpay her by US$10! Of course, my gf and I were shocked! But we didn't have any basis to argue (yah! my fault too!) & gave her the shortfall..
Anyway, we assumed that she must had "dropped" a note when we weren't looking cos I noticed her "peeping" at us when she was counting the money..
WARNING: Always count your money before you hand over to the seller!!!!!
NTK travel company, De Tham street, Saigon, district 1. They sell something that they cant keep;service and promises. We took their bus to MuiNe, to our Huong Bien Mui Ne Resort. AT first, the bus drove to other side of the city;to car registration office. We have to stay outside in the rain.
When we finally get to MuiNe, we were 3 hours late. The bus didnt take us to our resort(as were promised);it stopped at Ha Phuong office(see above...), 7 kilometers before our resort. We had to rent a mopedtaxis to get there. Its really funny sit in the moped(driver about 45 kilos, i weight about 85 kilos), my backpack on the front, daypack on my back and camera-back on my shoulder and its raining. And no rain coat. I almost smiled...
