Thien Hoa Hotel
TravelPod Member ReviewsThien Hoa Hotel Ho Chi Minh City
We got into Ho Chi Minh after a total of 18 hours of flying and incredibly jet lagged. We ended up not having time to make reservations ahead of time, so the cab driver took us to this place after I told him I wouldn't pay more than $20 usd for a hotel room. I wonder if I would have said I wont pay more than $15 if he would have brought us to the same place..
Anyway! It was $20 usd a night for my boyfriend and I. The staff was super nice, the room was nice- our own bathroom with western toilet, shower with hot water, huge bed, our own private balcony and air conditioning! We also had a tv and a mini fridge, table and chair. They don't have wifi, but they have a computer on the reception floor that you can use for free.
I would absolutely recommend this place, I know $20 is pricey for Vietnam but it was worth it at the time. I would try to get a better price next time.

... From there the museum led to Filipino garments from various ethnicities, and then onto ceramics that showed the trade between the Philippines and other Asian nations over the centuries. After that I went to a section of around 50 dioramas that showed the history of the Philippines which was good, and some saw models of ships. When I got back to the hotel and found Susie we chilled out for a bit then went out to a bar (a biker bar called Handlebar) for happy hour ...
I've just seen that my blog has passed 1000 views! How exciting. Some of them are me self congratulating on my own excellence, but somebody's been reading a lot. Thanks, I'm glad you like it.

Hi, I've been off-line for a few days in Cambodia visiting various temples in the city of Siem Reap.
(We left the ship in Bangkok, flew to Siem Reap for 2 nights and then flew to Ho Chi Minh City to meet the ship yesterday afternoon). Had dinner in Ho Chi Minh City last night. Our Sharon Heights and Mirabel Flags made the trip with us.

... contains small plum sized nuggets of yellow fruit. I wasn't that keen on it, it was a bit like the texture of a mango with a hint of banana flavour. A bit weird and yet again confirming my thought that all the good fruits are already imported to the UK, we don't bother buying the lesser ones. We turned off the main channel of the Mekong down a smaller tributary and finally here was the delta I had been waiting for. We passed down narrow channels lined densely ...
... how but sure enough we had cover over 3000kms and seen the most amazing country ever - we were both chuffed. That night we of course done on a feast fit for kings, consisting of KFC by the bucket load & a silly amount of beer but we deserved it.
For the next few days we spent relaxing and seeing what Saigon had to offer and it was a pretty cool city. We visited the War Museum which was truly eye opening and really made you understand how much destruction the ...
