Some useful tips when travelling around Saigon Mar 10, 2013
Here are some travel tips that I made on my own which I find pretty useful while I was travelling around Saigon:

-Always have enough cash in the bank (in case of emergency)

-Notify your bank about your future travel plans (date/period)

-Change some cash in the destination country (if it has smaller currency)

-Get a local SIM card + Internet (very useful especially during emergency)

-Choose hotels or guest houses which are close to the city centre (you can save a lot on taxi rides!)

-Share expenses if you have a travel buddy

-Don't eat too much, but moderately

-Keep important telephone numbers on both phone and paper

-Carry a pen and notebook (in case you need to explain some things to the locals)

-A calculator will come in handy (you can calculate your daily spending and jot down the details into your notebook)

-Observe where most travellers would go- they probably went/are going to where you want to go!

-Ask around for directions, but always stay calm and confident

-Bargain and survey when shopping

-Take travel tours if you think they are much better than doing everything yourself (affordable $ matters)

-Sinh Cafe at Pham Ngu Lao offers great tour packages with affordable prices

-It is good to carry a travel guidebook when travelling such as Lonely Planet & Berlitz books (especially when you do not have Internet)
