Our first time to Vienam. Fantastic, I would go back tomorrow if i could.
We didnt know what to expect, when we arrived it was hectic, so many motobikes but you soon get used to it.
When we arrived at the hotel they asked us if we would like to upgrade which we did as it was our first destination on our honeymoon.
The room was lovely, actually it was two rooms, bedroom and sitting room, two bathrooms, two tvs, dvd, free internet or wifi, two balconys. We could eat breakfast in the vip lounge in the mornings which was nice and we had free tea, cakes and nibbles.
The staff were lovely and couldnt do enough for you.
The hotel is situated right bang in the middle of Ho Chi Minh which was great.
Loads of tourist police and we never felt threatened at all.
Visited the war museum which was horrific but an eye opener.
The Chu Chi Tunnels are a must, amazing.
I would like to go back sooner rather than later as the country is becoming commerialised and you will see designer shops popping up everywhere, which is a shame.
Dont be surprised to see 5 on a bike with a live pig, we saw a double bed on one bike and another carrying a huge water tank.
The roads do seem dangerous but you quickly learn how to cross and the motobikes do avoid you.
I cant wait to go back!!!
