Going to Ho Chi Minh City, staying a month. Any ideas of what to do / stories about that city? Also coolest district? I'm staying in the 2nd.
I've read that there are a lot of scams, not really dangerous to walk around at night tho
How much $ are your accommodations?
I have the opportunity to move to Vietnam to work for a year, but I'm not sure what I'd do for fun. Temples and beaches only entertain for so long.
I'm able to stay at the house of a friends, he has a free room for me.
However, for the first night I'm staying at a 3star hotel because of the registration for $16
Before I knew this I found great rooms on monthly basis per airbnb, but they are not that cheap like in smaller Asian cities
>Literally everyone calls it Saigon, don't be a tryhard
You're right of course, just pointing out to the inevitable idiot disagreeing with you that the inner-city is actually NAMED Saigon and only the greater city is named HCMC.
>best place to eat is at open markets.
Best place to drink is in the backpacker streets, the street bars have some very cheap cocktails.
