lwjubeck's City Tips

  • If you are uninterested in a vendor or street seller, firmly say no, look them in the eye, and shake one hand from left to right (universally understood in Vietnam as meaning "no")
  • When dining out, ice tea (tra da) is a cheap and delicious option almost anywhere for 25 cents (5,000) or less. Be aware that the wet napkins almost always cost extra (5,000)
  • Anything without a price tag can be bargained down. It's not uncommon for the Vietnamese to charge foreigners 20-50% or more than local people.
  • Be selective about which tour companies you choose. Better to go with one that comes with good recommendations than wasting your money even on a cheap, poorly run tour.
  • Street food is plentiful, cheap, delicious and relatively safe. Choose vendors that are busy with customers.
  • Use only Vina Sun (white with green, red) or Mai Linh (green) taxis. They are plentiful, cheap and fair. From the airport to District 1 shouldn't be more than 150-200K dong ($6-10)
  • Be extremely watchful and careful with your belongings. The thieves here are fast and sneaky. Especially in the evening. Be weary of motorbike thieves. Don't easily trust anyone.
  • Choose a guesthouse away from Bui Vien or Pham Ngoc Thach for a slightly more relaxed, and friendly experience. Even nearby Le Loi is a huge improvement.

    Head to Tao Dan Park as early as you can and grab a cheap breakfast of banh mi (bread) and opla (eggs), with a cafe da (iced coffee) or coconut, in the park cafe. Early is best to beat the hot weather, but also because local men bring their birds to the park to sing while they drink coffee with their cronies. There are 2 park cafes, but choose the one on the Cach Mang Thang Tam side if you want to hear the birds in a lovely setting.

    Van Thanh Swimming Pool
    Sports Complexes
    lwjubeck Says:

    Because sometimes it's just too hot to do anything but lounge by a pool...Van Thanh is a very lovely, well-maintained swimming pool in the middle of an oasis of palm greens and thatched buildings. Quiet, peaceful and green. There are comfy lounge chairs and you can order a cold beer. The taxi will likely cost around $5 (100k) to get to from the center, and the entrance to the pool is $2.50 (50K). Great way to relax and unwind if you need a little break.

    Be sure to try Banh Xeo (Vietnamese savory pancakes) or Banh Khot (small, crispy, bit sized pancakes) to be wrapped in lettuce and herbs and dipped in fish sauce. Whether you try it here or someplace else, there are plenty of places around the city serving this yummy dish.

    Get a lot of pampering for your buck at one of the foot massage parlors on Ham Nghi street. You can get 1.5-2hours or more of various massage (from Thai to hot stone) for well under $20.

    When you're completely overwhelmed by the city and want to escape to someplace peaceful & green, lovely & authentic with amazing food. Book a bungalow here and ask the owner how to get there (its a little tricky). It's located a little over 2 hours from the city. The perfect place to unwind and experience rural Mekong life. A delicious breakfast and multi course dinner is included in each night stay. Also the owner can hook up with bikes to explore on your own or boat tours to nearby interesting places. This is a great way to experience the Mekong if you only have a couple days.
