Ho Chi Minh Day 4

A travel blog entry by tangerine9

With us having to wait until 8.30pm to board our night bus to Nha Trang, we decided that we would chill today. This meant a stroll down towards the river where we came across a tour guide who was leading some Germans round who seemed to have got slightly lost which lead to us pointing her in the correct direction of all the attractions.

A travel blog entry by tangerine9


So It was our first full day in Saigon and we woke up ready to tackle this great city and see everything it had to offer.There was just one problem though, it was Chinese New Years Eve (if that's the correct term) so as we were soon to discover there wasn't very much open. Anyway not to be deterred we set off, map in hand in search of the sights. …

Ho Chi Minh Day 1 - Long Journey to Saigon

A travel blog entry by tangerine9


Today we boarded the 8.30am bus to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon). Not much to report other than we once again received free bottled water on the journey as well as pieces of bread (a bit like being in church). The only notable thing about the journey was that it took 8 hours as opposed to the advertised 6 and that a short period of the journey was spent on …

Going underground and back in time...

A travel blog entry by anja.

My half day tour started as planned around 8.15 in the morning. Our tour guide was an old war veteran which made it a bit more interesting because he had a lot to tell. Of course, there had to be a bit of a touristy element to the trip so first we were taken to a small organisation that helps disabled people by training them in manufacturing …

Crazy traffic in Saigon...

A travel blog entry by anja.


After sleeping a little longer and a nice breakfast (baguette, omelette, banana and tea) I ventured out to explore HCMC in more detail. I decided to walk to get to know the city and know my way around which is simply impossible if you get taken around by any wehicle. Oh btw, they don't have the usual tuc tuc's in Saigon, they only have cyclos (well …

    People were very friendly and helpful. We got a 4 bedded room and we were a group of 3. The room was big and we had a balcony. The room seemed like it hadn't been cleaned in awhile but the bedsheets were alright. The bathroom wasn't very clean. When we checked in they didn't seem to prepared for us even though we had already booked it through the internet. But the room was ok and we didn't want cleaning as we were worried the maids would steal some of our stuff.
