    • Mekong tour

      Ho Chi Minh City Mar 8, 2015 at 11:26 PM

      Hi,

      I'm departing to HCM City in 2 days time and rushing for info now :-) Read quite a few info about Mekong but I'm confused because looks like there are Mekong Cruise and Mekong Tour 2 different type.

      Since I don't want cruising on a big ship so I search for the Mekong 1 or 2 days tour. Prices range from $15 to $300 which varies a lot and I can't find out the pick up point (this is important because I need to check the transport time needed from my accommodation place to there). Can anybody give me some idea?

      BTW, are there any suggestion in dining at some of the French Colonial design hotels? I may want to try one, sit there to experience the environment.

      Many tks,
      Lily

    • Visa On Arrival

      Ho Chi Minh City Feb 23, 2015 at 6:24 PM

      Hi,

      Understand that we can apply for Visa On Arrival in Tan Son Nhat Int'l Airport and would like confirm with more update information for my trip in March 2015.

      1. Apply online to some Vietnam travel agents to get a "government pre-approved letter" by email.
      2. Present the "government pre-approved letter" to immigration officers upon arrival to get the visa chop
      3. Do we need to prepare any photos for the Visa on Arrival?
      4. The US$45 VOA visa fee must be paid in cash and in US$ only?

      Pls advise. Many tks,

      Groupie in HCMC for 6 Full Days

      I and 5 more friends (not so old adults, age ranging from 40-50yo) will be visiting HCMC on Oct 15-20. Been to the city twice already and I found Cu Chi Tunnels and city tour recommendable. Was planning to experience more, such as the following tours:
      1 Day Mekong Delta. Which is better between My Tho-Ben Tre and Cai Be-Vinh Long?
      1 Day Cao Dai Temple + Cu Chi Tunnels. Is this possible in a day?

      Any advice how a group can best experience HCMC to the fullest?

    • Tet in Vietnam

      Ho Chi Minh City Sep 3, 2014 at 7:50 AM

      I am thinking about extending a tour with OAT to stay in Ho Chi Minh City over the beginning of Tet. It sounds like Tet New Year's Eve might be fun, but New Year's Day is a family day and not much is open. So I was thinking of actually flying back to US on Tet New Year's Day, but am concerned about whether it will be difficult to get transportation to the airport and also about restaurants being open. I would love to hear about anyone with experience being in Ho Chi Minh City over Tet. Also any recommendations about where it would be best to stay or moderate priced hotels or even better someplace with a little kitchen.

      Ho Chi Minh City Jul 26, 2014 at 3:52 AM

      Hi, Last time I was in HCM (October 2013) we ate at a restaurant that I cannot remember it's name. There was an article on it in the Vietnamese Airlines inflight magazine which is why we dined there. On my iphone photos that I took at the time, the location is Ho Chi Minh - Purong 9, Durong Ho Van Hue. Would you have any idea the name of the restaurant as we are returning to HCM and would love to dine there again?

      I am going to HCMC in two weeks and I would like to do a permanent hair straightening like the brazilian blowout, keratin treatment, rebounding, japanese treatment.

      I took a look at some info online but the only one I found was the Concept Coiffure that looks top of the line but the price is definitely above my budget.

      Does anybody has any other options that would cost $100 ish (or less)?

      Hello,

      I am planning to visit Saigon within couple of weeks or so. I am interested in doing a simple and non-commercial city tour just for a day or two. I was wondering if there is any english speaking friendly local, with some knowledge about the place and the culture, interested in showing me around in a motorbike during their free time :). I can also help with renting a bike if needed and take care of the travel expenses.

      Thanks :)
