Tips when visiting Ho Chi Minh City
- Highly recommended to stay in District 1 cause there are lots of famous attractions around such as Ben Thanh Market, Reunification Palace, Saigon Square, Saigon Central Post Office and more. And if you are looking for backpacker area, the intersection of Pham Ngu Lao and De Tham streets is the place. There also plenty of ground packages, restaurants, cafes and bars are available there.
- Remember if you plan to take taxi, just find MaiLinh or Vinasun.
- Change few Vietnamese dong before arrive because not all shops accepted US dollar.
- The best place that I think is worth to change Vietnamese dong will be inside Saigon Central Post Office.
