Saigon the name of the locals, Ho Chi Minh the name given ......
Arriving from A flight from Da'nang one suddenly appreciates the sheer scale of the city below, it's massive, made up of districts. The taxi journey is a massive contrast to its northern brother of Hanoi, though big itself, this another monster completely. After arriving in the …

Vietnamese New Year!!

Ho Chi Minh City

Arrived the day before Vietnamese new year after getting a flight from Phu Quoc island. We stayed at Giangson hotel in the main backpacker area, and after a brief sleep went out and found the best noodle soup place on our travels so far. The menu was only small, with 4-5 different soups but they were extremely fresh and …

Happy New Year in Saigon

A travel blog entry by bertine


Am 29. Dezember, also rechtzeitig zu Silvester, sind wir mit dem Bus nach Ho Chi Minh-City gefahren. Die Stadt hieß ehemals Saigon, wurde aber umbenannt, nachdem Nordvietnam den Süden 1975 erobert und das Land wiedervereint hatte. Da nun der kommunistische Norden das Land regierte, sollte das auch im ehemaligen Südvietnam deutlich gemacht werden. …

Experts at crossing the road

A travel blog entry by toddfarrtravel



Well well well. To say we didn't start ho chi minh in a great way is a massive understatement. I don't wanna go into great detail but Chris got robbed on the sleeper bus. We were stuck on a local bus but that shouldn't matter. Some one (and we think it was the guy behind us) managed to get into his bag while we were sleeping …

...get back to eating in HCMC.

A travel blog entry by wrangly


Indonesia has some great food, as long as you eat locally. Most of it is prepared early in the morning and sits out all day - takes a little getting used to, but otherwise full of flavor and variety. Nevertheless, it can be hard to find when the small places are replaced with 'backpacker friendly' restaurants with overpriced, (generally) poor …

    A little pricier than some but worth every bit. The staff is friendly and helpful with a good grasp of English. Rooms are clean (though some are a little small). Nice rooftop terrace for relaxing. Daily room cleaning. Safe atmosphere.

    If you would like a room quick easy and cheap this is the place for you! However if you expect any type of service other then a sheet change every few days go somewhere else.

    We were very pleased with Giang and Son. They are central enough that you can walk everywhere. The people were lovely and only to happy to help with anything from walking in the city to organising our transport from Saigon. The room was clean and very light with a lovely bathroom. They also came to meet us from the bus top which was lovely as seeing a friendly face in a new city is always nice!

    We were really happy to have found Giang Son Guesthouse. It is a very frindly and clean place with nice interior and bathroom. Probably the cleanest place we have stayed at in Vietnam it is definitely a place we would return to. Especially as the staff is really friendly and the included Breakfast (typical Bread and Egg or Bread and (homemade) Jam) comes with tasty coffe and some fruit. I highly recommend a stay.
