I will be in Ho Chi Minh only for 3 days, in Feb 9-12. I need to commute to dist Q3, but don’t want to stay in the location.
I have been reading lots and lots of hotel reviews in Ho chi Minh on TA and other forums :-), and am particular keen on the mid range prices establishments are either on Le Thanh Ton street or Mac thi Buoi street as I want to be closer to the mains attractions in Ho Chi Minh or hopefully within walking distance to most shopping/ eating places in the evening.
Could some TA experts in Ho Chi Minh please advise why I should stay on at either street? advantages of staying on Le Thanh Ton street vs Mac thi Boui? or via versa?? Google map does not show the streets view and Mac thi Buoi looks like an alley way? However, I read somewhere that it was listed as a book street? Sounds like a very interesting street or happening street?
I hope to not have to spend lots of time looking for where to go shopping, just hoping to be able to find some light souvenirs, and perhaps couple of summer dresses? Or can someone please suggest on where should I go for dinners for 3 nights in Q1?
Price range from 20-30AUD a meal is within my budget.
I need to book the accommodation pretty soon … fingers crossed that I make a right one
