A Must-Visit Spot in Ho Chi Minh City: Bitexco Saigon Skydeck & The World of Heineken

It wasn’t my first visit to Vietnam or Ho Chi Minh City, so I didn’t have an exact itinerary this time. I’ve done some of the must-do and must-visit spots in the city from the Water Puppet Show to War Remnants Museum on my previous 2-week trip to Vietnam.

So instead, I just tried to wing it when I was there. And that’s when I decided to stop by Bitexco Financial Tower after strolling around District 1 on my first day in the city.

To be fair, I started late at around 1 PM on my first day. And since I didn’t have a fixed itinerary about what I had to do or visit, I decided to just go to some coffee shop and some cafe. Of course, I had ca phe sua da, because ca phe sua da is life in Vietnam. ๐Ÿ˜›

I wandered around the area until around 3 PM, I decided to just go to Bitexco Financial Tower. Bitexco Saigon Skydeck seems to be one of the places on the must-visit list in Vietnam. But if I gotta be honest with you, in the beginning, I wasn’t really interested in visiting the place.

I always thought that it was the kind of place that is overhyped and probably overpriced too. I didn’t even do any research about the entrance fee in advance. I went go-show for this, and I’m glad I did.

The Best Luggage for Your Travel Companion: Tumi Lattitude International Hardside Carry-on Luggage VS NaSaDen Heidelberg Carry-on

As I stated in my short profile on the sidebar of my blog, I usually add on checked-in baggage whenever I travel. Apart from back when I worked as a flight attendant, the only time I traveled with carry-on luggage was a couple of years ago when I went to Singapore for Arsenal’s pre-season game on International Champion Cup.

However, I still have a few cabin luggage that I occasionally use for a short getaway. It doesn’t matter that I still end up putting it on the checked-in baggage on the flight.

The point is to at least have cabin luggage, in case I have no additional budget to add the baggage for a flight like my short Singapore trip when I was broke but wanted to go for the sake of football.

And today, I’m going to talk about two cabin-sized luggage that could be your consideration for your new travel companion. Those two that I will talk about in this post is the review between Tumi Lattitude International Hardside Carry-on Luggage and NaSaDen Heidelberg Carry-on.

So, between the two, which one is better?

What You Could Get in Hoi An for $10 – Some Things Around the Town That Are Beyond the Lanterns!

Hi everyone!

If you know me personally, I think you already know that Vietnam has been my favorite country to visit so far. Good food, nice people everywhere, and everything is so affordable!

Personally, Hoi An wasn’t my favorite place in Vietnam. I’ve been there 3 years ago, but this week Delilah of Our Travel Mix will share with us her favorite things to do in Hoi An for less than $10 USD!
