Ho Chi Minh City to Chau Doc: Going Out of Town with G5Car Comfort Car in Vietnam

Hi everyone!

I don’t mean to be a tone-deaf if I keep updating my blog with some travel posts from my last Indochina trip these days with all coronavirus things going on. I know this, because it seems to be an issue within the travel bloggers community since I’ve seen a lot of posts from some bloggers complaining about the number of traffic declining and whatnot.

But guess what? It won’t stop me from writing more stories about my last trip around Indochina because first of all… I need to keep my blog active. And other than that, it’s still fresh in my memory so I need to write it now before I forget about what happened. Or worse, before the laziness strikes me!

Let’s be honest, I’ve spent my last few days binge-watching the earlier season of The Mindy Show. I need to force myself to do something a little productive today, and that is to share with you my experience of renting a private car from Ho Chi Minh City to Chau Doc.

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

It wasn’t my first visit to Ho Chi Minh City, so I didn’t have an exact itinerary this time. 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. 😛

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 Ho Chi Minh City. 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.

Novia Hotel Saigon: A Unique, Affordable (Love) Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City

Hi everyone! 🙂

For those who follow me on Instagram, you may have already watched one of my Instastories about this hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. The hotel that intrigued me prior to booking it, with an exceptional welcome greeting when I got there, only to be surprised when I arrived in the hotel room.

And if you happened to be one of those people who asked me to spill the tea about the hotel, here’s the answer: it’s Novia Hotel.

A likely love hotel where you could actually spend some time to fulfill your fantasy, because they have a lot of themed rooms. From something as innocent as Hello Kitty and Doraemon, to some sex fantasy like BDSM. 😛

So, what kind of room did I get and how was my stay there?! Well, I’ll write the review here. So let’s see!

Review: Vietnam Airlines Flight from Kuala Lumpur to Ho Chi Minh City (VN 674)

So, just a couple of hours ago I already wrote this very post for like 1000 words until I clicked save draft, got an error message, only to find out that neither the 1000 words nor the 4 photos I uploaded were saved. It was such a buzzkill, especially since I’m genuinely on the writing mood after weeks of traveling!

For those who follow my blog, you may notice that the last few recent blog posts, most of them are either guest posts or sponsored. But now that I’m back home, I will start updating my blog with my Indochina trip journey. Mind you, this has been a journey full of ups and downs so stay tuned for the update! 😐

And this time, I’m gonna share with you my experience of flying with Vietnam Airlines for the first time. After having a short layover and staying at Bary Inn Hotel close to KLIA, I flew directly from Kuala Lumpur to Ho Chi Minh City with the airlines using VN 674 flight. So, how was my experience?!

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!

I’ve been to some places in Vietnam, and while I got a sweet spot about Saigon and surprisingly felt home in Hue, there’s one place in Vietnam that has become everyone’s favorite: Hoi An.

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!
