Tours at HCMC  (23 Answers)

Hi there!

I am going to HCMC on April 26 to May 2 alone and I need your help in deciding if I should book a tour or I'll just go around the place and commute by myself. I am also looking at booking an accommodation at Blue River Hotel and their site says that I can also book a tour with them. Do you think it's a good idea to book a tour at the hotel?

Thank you guys sooooo much!

Haydee

where to stay for 7 nights?  (2 Answers)

Hi,

I'm going to be traveling this spring with my wife. We're should have about 3 weeks total in Vietnam. I'm interested in finding a decent place for us to relax for 7 nights. We are going to start in Hanoi and Ha Long Bay and will eventually end up in Can Tho so our 7 night stay can literally be anywhere in between.

We don't mind if it's secluded or a nice resort somewhere. We're budgeting about100 a night for accommodation...

Any suggestions?

bus to Mui Ne at night  (3 Answers)

Hi,

I am planning to holiday to Mui Ne and HCMC this April, and my flight is schedule to arrive at HCMC airport 07.40 pm (if not late).
I want to go straight to Mui Ne at that night, and I heard about night bus to that place that leave at 09.00 pm. However I have not found any information about that bus at Sinh Cafe.
So, I need help if someone ever took that night bus and share the information. Is it possible to buy the ticket as we come, or we have to book in advance?
For the way back to HCMC I am thinking to take night train from Phan Thiet. Is there possible?

Thank you in advance for the information!

A/H1N1 Virus (Swine Flu)  (6 Answers)

I've heard on the Vietnam's local news recently that HCM's city is suffering from a A/H1N1 virus. Lots of people get infected (about 503 people on July 30, 2009 already). I have not heard of anyone died from this virus but the government advices travelers not to stay near any crowded areas, wear surgical or facial masks all the time, and it's better to have a little hand-sanitizer to use if interact with people.

Swine Flu outbreaks in High School:
Pregnant women are more prone to get severe or fatal illness when infected with the A/H1N1 flu virus:

Is it still safe to travel to this country?
Please post more up-to-date news or info. about this if possible.
Thanks.

Ho Chi Minh trip 31Mar  (4 Answers)

Hi,

We are arriving in HCM this Mar31. I'd like to check the valuable opinion of VTers on what spots I should see/take pictures of in HCM. I will stay for a week so that gives me a lot of time to move around. Will also appreciate spots where native eats are superb. I know the pho in Pasteur st is splendid so what about coffee shops that serve decaf coffee? Can I also find french pastries (aside of course from my hotel's pastillerie). Will be staying in one of the riverside hotels so any advice on transportation is also fantastic.

Thanks in advance. :D
