HCMC/Saigon and Foss Asia

A travel blog entry by nsevers


I am in HCMC/Saigon for the FossAsia Free and Open Source Software Conference. Oh this city is an adventure for sure!

My first impression of HCMC from the taxi from the airport was that of a modern city with some lovely architecturand relative affluence, and lots of neon. I booked the Au Lac Hotel (2) Saigon in District 1 on Agoda. I chose …

As du volant et autres histoires

... whizz by from left, right, and center - and taxis are just as enthousiastic.
I already touched upon the value they put on service here - this value means that an average Joe wishing for a pack of cigarette can ask the waiter and 3 minutes later get the pack without so much as lifting a finger (except the one used for waving the waiter over). It is this same notion of good service that will cause a taxi driver to turn 90 into a heavy traffic flow, ignoring ...

Bitexco Tower

A travel blog entry by nathanmills


We went to China Town (Cho Lon) via bus, queue standard bus shena****ns. The area was a big disappointment, very dirty and smelly.

Went to an indoor market, about 80cm wide walking space with goods piled up 2m either side. Hold onto your pockets kids. It was baking inside and we tried to walk around as fast as possible without wrecking any goods we still got caught up, trampled and elbowed by people ...

... to China. We therefore had to book another nights stay but the hostel was again full so we returned to the hotel we had stayed at for our first night. We then made sure that all our remaining coaches were booked to Hanoi so we would make our flight in time.

The rain was bucketing the next morning and as our bus was not until 8pm we decided to pay the fee for half a day to stay in the room. This gave us all time to catch up on clothes washing, emails and ...

    This new hotel was a good choice for me! Traveling solo, this immaculate spacious new hotel is on a quiet street that has a police station across the street. Tourists routinely have safety problems in the backpacker area (near Bui Vien) and around the Ben Thanh market, so I was very happy that I chose this location. It's just a block or two away from the Palace Hotel and also the River, on that street and the nearby Dong Khoi, there are lots of restaurants, shops and galleries. The hotel staff is attentive and the shower was very good also! You can easily book through Agoda.
