Ho Chi Minh City trip. Tips for you.

Today is the third day i'm in Ho Chi Minh City.  Of course we fly here by Air Asia. The first day we arrive, we check in at Saigon Pink 2 Hotel.  We choose this hotel because of there is no step at the entrance of the hotel, suitable for elderly who have difficulties climbing the stairs.  But please before you fly from your country, write down your hotel address as not all viet taxi driver understand english.  We just show the address to make the driver understand.  If you have a destination to go, please prepare yourself with addresses.

After we have our rest about 1 hour. We go to a curtain shop.  This shop is recommend by a friend. We have communicated tru email before we fly.  I gave her the measurement tru email. But she need a drawing so i bought it to her that day.  Her name is Phuc. Contact no: 08.3833 063.  She can speaks English. So it is easier for you to deal with her.  I order curtain for 4 nos of 2 panel window, 1 no of sliding door, 1 no of 1 panel window and 1 no of 4 panel window. All of them costs me around 11,000 viet dong. She told me that she can deliver to our hotel the day before we fly back to malaysia that is tonight.

Then that night we eat at Serai Restaurant. We call off the day after dinner.

Second day, we follow a trip tru travel agent to Mekong River. Interesting places we go. Longans are cost at 30,000 viet dong per kg.  We have bought before at Ben Than Market but it cost us 100,000 viet dong per kg. Please people, if you intend to buy fruit, it must below 50,000 viet dong per kg.

Then at night we went to Linda Wholesale.  This shop closes at 2300. It offer a lot of Jubah and Baju Kurung at cheap price.  You should go here first before buying any clothes at other places in Ho Chi Minh. Trust me, it is kuch more worth it. Lycra telekung just cost RM32. Half moon shawl that she sew for Ratu cost me RM18/each. Baju kurung lyca cost RM40. Blouse lycra cost RM20-RM25. Jubah Lycra cost about RM34. Call/whatsapp Linda before you go at +849388 23457

The next day, that is this morning, we go to cho bin tay (china town) you can find many vietnam silk (RM35) and vietnam cotton (RM22). Maybe you guys can get better price than this if you really a good at bargain.  I also order a made to measure jubah.  I order 2 jubah at RM150, materiel and sew altogether.  They will send it tonight. Can you believe that? That fast... Oh yes i fogot to tell you that they accept Ringgit Malaysia and Viet Dong.

After we finished spending our money there, we take a break at our hotel. At noon we go to Ben Than Market. Here we buy souviniers and bags. This kind of bag cost me RM30. 
This bag cost me RM50

So thats all for today, i'll update more tips for you guys if I remember.  Bye for now...
