TravelPod Member ReviewsSeventy Hotel Ho Chi Minh City
We were supposed to be staying at the Phan Anh backpackers hotel but after a very long journey from Sihanoukville and a very early arrival at 1am we were told our room was not available as they were having problems with the toilet so we had to move to their sister hotel - the one I am reviewing. The room was okay but had no natural light - the window was in the corridor and therefore we heard everyone coming and going at all hours. The room was small but well furnished and maintained. Do not book the bus ticket with the tour office - we brought a multi stop bus ticket and the quality of buses were terrible and sometimes were not buses at all, just small run down minibuses - considering we booked the sleeper bus at a higher price, it was extremely annoying. We did also keep requesting to go back to the hostel but were told several different stories of why we could not return and we heard other people had also been transferred here so it seems a regular occurrence.

In the airport on the way here we had a slight issue with the visa which left us worrying that we might not be allowed into Vietnam at all!

Back in the restaurant I'm asked to wait to be seated, they show me to a seat at the bar along with another westerner to my right. I order a beer and ask him if he's in Saigon to work or travel. He turns out to be from Italy there to work for 3 months, his pizza arrives so I disengage the conversation so he can eat in peace. 5 minutes later we are joined by a lady that I suspect ...
... and more time-efficient. Both of us were rather sceptic as we are not very big fans of group tours but nevertheless we gave it a try. So, there we were on a Wednesday morning at 8am in a bus filled with tourists heading to the Mekong Delta. We booked the tour for 2 nights and 3 days and our programme included various activities such as a visit to the famous floating market, a boat tour through a mangrove forest, a visit to a coconut candy factory etc. On the third day we had our ...
This morning, before setting sail for Malaysia, we took a quick optional trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels. These were used by the Vietcong, the Vietnamese people in support of the Communist North during the Vietnam War. Apparently, if there were US forces walking through the jungle, the Vietcong would jump up in small groups to attack, blast away at the US forces, and then disappear back down the tunnels.
Just a note in case you haven't noticed: If you click on the ...
... one of the hardest parts of my day) I sometimes get side tracked and stuck wondering the biggest question of all...what will I do when this journey finally comes to an end and when the constant change is muted. I keep repeating the quotes "It's better to travel well than to arrive" and "Life is a journey, not a destination". So I take deep breaths and then with my exhales let the thoughts of 'then' vanish and return to the 'now' and find myself ...
