I'm leaving for my first trip to Vietnam next week :-). I read a review which stated: "the trip to My Tho is nothing but a tourist trap " - and it's not a real experience, as it is all created for tourists.
What is your reply & thoughts to that? If you agree, are there 2D,1N Mekong Delta tours that skip this and still remain very good?
Approximately how much would a taxi (for two persons) cost from Ho Chi Minh Airport to central My Tho? We will be landing at a time when the last bus of the day has already gone.
Is there a public swimming pool in My Tho or even a hotel with a swimming pool?
Are the boats clean? DSo you spend your whole holiday on the boat or do you stop overnight at hostels?
Ok, i guess i'm gonna be the first to ask a question here, so here it goes...
Anybody has any recommendations for a budget guesthouse in My Tho?
Say maybe5-10USD per night?
I know most travellers come to My Tho on a day trip from Saigon, but i thinking of doing it myself.
