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.

... a ticket office that although beared no resemblance to the address or instructions, we thought we would try our luck and see if they knew English as we were now completely lost! I stood outside, while Ben went in, conscious of the time and freaking out a little (or a lot!!) I cannot explain the relief when I saw the clerk hand Ben two tickets!!! We managed to find our way back to the station and were just in time to board! We were ushered to our "5 star" carriage. It was ...
... in town......those of us who have made it to the end. We ended up being joined by some other teachers and many a toast was given. Many people are heading off on holidays this weekend so it is going to be exceptionally quiet for those of us who are left.....I am still not sure how many of us will actually be working!!!!
Anyway enjoy all my photos......I am sure they say more than I can put into words.
Bye for now. xx

The war lasted for 15 years (1960 - 1975). Millions of Vietnamese and Americans lost their lives and subsequent generations of Vietnamese were seriously affected by the chemicals used by the US.
