Day 1
On the day arrived, my friend and I straight away to Pham Ngu Lao Street, District 1 and check in at Saigon Backpacker's Hostel . I booked this hostel from Agoda website. The accommodation quite comfortable for us. And lucky we met new friend (same home town with us) in the plane and he bring us to our hostel by his company car. He also suggest some places in Vietnam to visit.Thanks a lot to him.

Motorcycle traffic jammed
Private Room
Clean Toilet
After take a rest, we plan to walk along district 1 area for dinner and looking for travel agent. Yes this is really backpacker's area as mentioned in Lonely Planet (LP). A lot of foreigners from all over the world. One of the reason district 1 famous amongst backpackers is because of the location, close to the bars. Finally, we found The Sinh Tourist (recommended by LP). We discuss our plan trip and let them give the best suggestion for us. So, we booked the whole Vietnam trip include guest house. Yehaaaa...The trip are done!!!!

Establish Tour Agent

5 minutes from Sinh Tourist, we reached Ben Thanh night market. This night market open every day start from 6.00pm local time. We had our dinner here.

p/s : To my malaysian buddies, we can use Ringgit Malaysia (RM) :)

Day 2
Our first trip is My Tho Ben Tre 1 Day Tour or known as Mekong Delta Tour. The trip depart from Sinh Tourist at 8.30am. It took about one and half hour from HCMC to reach the location. Below are some of Mekong Delta trip photos.

Awesome and tiring trip. Arrived HCMC at 6.00pm. HUNGRY!!!!Dinner Time and let's try VN Halal Restaurant :) Rush to the hostel, packing and went to Phung Trang bus office (same row with Sinh cafe). The journey to Dalat is about 6 hours. You can feel like riding roller coaster.
