New Year came and just went the first trip in 2017. So me and my friend flew about 22 hours to Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam…Well don’t worry guys I had change my flight to Singapore first and sight seeing over there. But, this photos diary will explain my trip in HCM City. I had only heard great things, from the culture to the sight and food… we ended up staying 3 days and hope could explore more in SAIGON. Some of my favorite spot when I got travel is food so that’s why try PHO (traditional food from Vietnam) when I arrived in HCMC it similar like Kwetiau in Jakarta but Pho more smaller. This is my first meal and we eat Pho in Pham Ngu Lao favorite road for traveler. Beside that I also everlooks the Notre Dame cathedral, public market Benh Thanh Market, Opera Hall, Saigon Post Office and Food street! There’s honestly so much to see and do but please read below for everything I’d recommend most :
Yellow Bus – well its look like school bus honestly but is so much fun. When you arrived in Saigon International Airport don’t be panic just go outside and look on right there’s a lot of the Yellow Bus and just asking the man your stop. I would like to stay in Pham Ngu Lao in distric 1 the ticket buses only 20.000 VND ( I recommend SATSCO +84 120 447 0448) it spend 1 hour drive from Saigon Airport Including crazy traffic in Ho Chi Minh.
TAXI – maybe it more expensive but worth it.
What to see:
Pham Ngu Lao – Pham Ngu Lao street in Ho Chi Minh City is on the western edge of distric 1 and is renowned as the place where the most backpacking travelers stay during their holiday. Most popular street that you can find everything and the hotel here cheaper about 8 USD / night /person.
Ben Thanh Market – Well this traditional market so busy.. I mean really busy. Theres a lot of thing that you can buy here. But be careful with your pocket.
Traffic – Love it or not you should survive.. traffic here so crazy. Theres no space when you walking here.
City Hall – HCM City Hall one of the most famous attraction here for turist take a rest or just only take a pictures.
Notre Dame Cathedral – many people here took a prawedding moment in Notre Dame. Beside that you can see the book street.
Saigon Post Office – the post office just 50 meters from Notre Dame so you get two destination here.
Where to Eat:
Food Street – Don’t worry about the price you can find the cheap price started from 20.000 VND wooowwww….
Where to Stay :
Pham Ngu Lao at the District 1
