TravelPod Member ReviewsTan Hai Long Hotel 3 Ho Chi Minh City
First night was upgraded to a VIP room with a nice balcony view for the one night because our booked room was occupied. The next day, we were shown to our booked room - a third of the size, with 2 tiny windows facing neighbouring building walls one metre away. So we paid extra to stay in the VIP room..haggled the price down with the manager!! We came to a decent agreement.

... from the airport tried to scam us by claiming there were 4 other hotels called the same the same as ours......he stopped and made phone calls and put on quite a show. Being a bit more savvy these days we stood our ground and when we eventually arrived at the hotel gave him the agreed fare only. We then insulted him by offering a 10000 dong (about 30p) tip......which he refused and walked away with awry smile.......ha ha! We were prepared for all the bikes this time, enough though ...
... the VC began washing with American soap, which gave off a scent the canines identified as friendly. Captured US uniforms were put out to confuse the dogs further. Most importantly, the dogs were not able to spot booby traps. So many dogs were killed or maimed that their horrified handlers then refused to send them into the tunnels. The USA declared Cu Chi a free-strike zone: little authorisation was needed to shoot at anything in the area, random ...
... station for local buses, so since I was there anyways I looked for bus 13, the one that is supposed to go most of the way to the CuChi tunnels, but I couldn't find it either. So that meant I was REALLY not going to the tunnels. After about an hour of wandering around looking for 1 Bui Vien road (which doesn't exist), I finally noticed on my directions that I'd written down "at the base of the Oriental Hotel." I dropped by one of the street travel ...
... enough for us, and one by one people started to fall right in to the water! It was hilarious to watch, first James went, then a couple others right at the front and then Monica right in front of me. We grabbed her and pulled her out and she was absolutely soaked through, including her bag. It was all very funny and everything until people started to realise what they had in their bags including electronics. Phones were put straight into bags of rice as soon as we got there ...
... out and I attempted to walk down the street for some dinner but struggled. I started feeling sick again in the heat and humidity too. At this point I knew I couldn't go anywhere tonight, so we went back to the hostel and booked another room for the night. Unfortunately we could only get some money back for the second tickets (Nha Trang to Da Nang) as the others were less than 4 hours before. I slept like a log that night and was so glad we decided not to go.
