Currency Exchange INFO
Currency : Dong [ Rate: 0.00018400]
There was a few money changer in the KL : You may check Midvalley , Sunway Pyramid and Pavillion which had a better rate.
When I reach the airport , I saw a great deal near the entrance of the airport ! You might need it if you go for a long vacation in Vietnam. There got 2 types of popular local sim card with a data plan which is Vinaphone & Mobifone . Vinaphone has an attractive deal for the tourists where 5GB data plan unlimited only costs 100,000VDN (=RM20) .For me, I did not buy the sim card as I just stay for 4days.
They are a 2-plug hole which is different with Malaysia. So be prepare a universal adapter as some of the hotels would not have the adapter.
**Sunscreen & Mask needed if you riding the scooter . The weather is hot and there will be insects flying during evening time.
We saw a lot Highland Coffee branch outlet and decided to give it a try since we were thirsty too. Their coffee tastes strong enough but just served with a little portion. We have a view of looking all the motorcycle on the road while having our coffee.
Then, we departed to Saigon Square which is a stone’s throw away from the Coffee Shop. Saigon square was a 2 storey building and I can say that this is women’s shopping heaven. A lot of stuff from head to toe can be bought from here. I saw a lot of branded running top and bottom such as Hurley, Nike, Adidas and lots more. Remember you need to bargain the price to 50%.
Our last stop of the day is the Night Market behind Ben Tanh Market. The night market was quite happening whereby the place is the hotspot for tourist to buy souvenir and dining there. We take a stroll there and buy some souvenir. During the way back to our hotel, we went to the local 24hours convenient shop to buy instant noodle for our supper.
After 5 hours, we had reached Mui Ne! The bus is directly stopping us in front of our resorts.While waiting for checking, we were served by welcomed drink and enjoyed the sea view in front of our resort.
We went to White Sand Dunes which is 45minutes drive from our resort. The view there is damn awesome.
It’s quite hard to walk on the sand with either barefoot or wearing shoes. We went up to hill part and having a 360-degree view. What I can say is the captivating view! I saw quite a number of brides shooting there too. Almost dinner time, we went back to our resort. The view along the road is damn awesome.
We went to the Mr. Crab for our seafood dinner. The seafood there was quite cheap and fresh. You will find a lot of Boke [restaurant] along the road.
And, fortunately, we had met the friendly Nanning teacher whom we met at the shuttle bus; we took photos together for sure.
The weather at the Fishing Village was quite hot. So, remember to apply the sunscreen before going out or otherwise will get sunburn like me. The sky was blue and the sea was calm. It was a kind of reminiscing view. I liked the Woven Bamboo Basket Boats so much because I had never seen this kind of boat before. This was one of the reasons I wanted to visit the Fishing village.
The weather became hotter and we quickly went to the Red Sand Dunes which 6 minutes away from Fishing Village. The sand was so hot and we faster took some photo of it and left the place. The Red Sand Dunes is smaller than the White Sand Dunes but also have a nice view of the sea from the top of dunes. Perfect place to watch sunset/sunrise.
While the Saigon Central Post Office which was in the yellow colour building and I had seen a group secondary graduate taking photos in front of the entrance. I liked their school uniform which was their traditional costume -- Ao Dai.
I had sent out my postcard as I had the habit that wherever I go I will send one postcard back to home as a memory.
Then, we proceed to Benh Danh Market for final shopping. HAHA! But, I had only bought a small clutch while my bff bought the local famous coffee.
Before we check out, we went to café named “Phuc Long” which was as famous as Starbucks in HCM to try their drinks. I had ordered their Signature Phuc Long Tea Latte. Nice !!
Wish to try the other flavor but have to back Msia again. So sad. Bye Ho Chi Minh City ! BYE Vietnam !
My Review: I will recommend you stay here because the hotel room is damn clean, wifi strong enough, breakfast not bad, and the service is good! I’m satisfied with stay. The room picture is exactly the same in the website.
