    Vung Tau, South-East Vietnam, Vietnam
    from saigon, take a 1 hour and 45 min. hydrofoil ferry ride to vung tau. when there ask the people with motorbikes to bring you to the beach( i stayed in bimexco, pretty good and cheap)...the beach has great potential! you can also go to the jesus christ statue though a very long flight of stairs await...the view is amazing though. for food, don't let the fresh seafood of the coastal area go to waste by ordering beef, chicken or pork! bamboo restaurant is a great restaurant! great location as well!

    being driven around in vietnam is the most crazy experience...we went to mui ne a 3-4 hour drive and it was insane!! four cars driving side by side on a two lane road!!! driving anywhere between 40 and 120k!!! Then theres the fact that the cars are on the wrong side of the road and the driver on the wrong side of the car!! Scary actually scary enough you don't need a theme park just go for a day trip...lol

    Make sure to take a cyclo ride around the city! It's an easy way to see the best spots in the city. The driver will drop you off and wait while you explore. Be sure to tip the driver well...it's a hard job.

    To get around Vietnam you must catch a bus. The bus trips are very long due to the undeveloped roads.
    My tip is to not travel with a company called T.M Brothers Cafe. They are convenient as there are alot of them, but the buses are not nice and they do not care about the customer. The bus doesn't have a toilet on board which means using (very dirty) squat toilets alot. I travelled with this company overnight about 4 times and they stop ALOT during the night, unexplainedley, which adds alot of time to the already long trip. They turn off the bus during these stops and it becomes very hot. I recommend travelling with someone else for sure. I went with Sinh Cafe also and they were luxury in comparison. There is a toilet on board and no unexplained stops along the way.

    For travellers going "Free Easy", make sure enough time is allocated for a trip to HCMC as...
    1. You can only go to One location / day
    2. Tours / trips are bought on a daily basis
    3. Trips start at 8am, meaning that you can't go on a tour on your arrival day (will arrive at your hotel at about 10am, due to jams)

    recommend: 5D4N or more

    The traffic in this city is insane, filled with fast-moving motorcycles in every corner you go to! The official count for these motorcycles is around 6 million of them, but once you get down to the streets it looks more than that.

    Joining the chaotic traffic, then, is surely a bizarre experience you don't want to miss. Try riding a cyclo instead, it'll give you more on-the-ground feeling in a more traditional mean. But make sure you make a very clear price deal before you hop in, or else they will try to rip you off.
