So as I start a big hello guys! It was a dream for me to travel solo to Vietnam.Finally it was the D day And I was so excited because it's gonna be my first international Travel. It all started with a stamp on my Passport, boarded the Thai Air Asia flight from Visakhapatnam to Ho chi Minh City via Bangkok at 12:15 am and at present I am at Don mueang international airport (Bangkok).
Waiting for my next connection to Ho chi Minh City (Saigon) South Vietnam. I will be reaching there by 9:30 am
I have some big plans Today in Saigon.
Will soon update at the end of the day.
After reaching Ho chi Minh city tan( Tan son nhat airport) visa on arrival and immigration is done . Came out at 11:30 am took a Grab(cheap transport app in Vietnam) to my hostel. My room is pretty good actually at centre of district 1. It's name is city poshtel.Very neat and clean also.Do check out. It will be in Budget.
After checking in, I went outside for a local Sim and I went to viettel(The largest network in Vietnam) official Store in district 1 to purchase it and got it for 150000 dongs for 12GB data/30days. And then went to exchange notes at Exim bank branch at district 1. Got a good deal though.
After doing a small meal of pho noodles(30,000 dongs) which was excellent I have left to the war Remnants Museum (Entrance ticket 40,000 dongs)and information over here is so cool and very historical.
And then I went to Independence palace(40,000 dongs) which was quite beautiful and walking through the central park I have went to Saigon central post office which was started in 1890s and quite opposite to it you can see Notre dame cathedral.
And then I have went to the tallest building in Vietnam country the bitexco financial tower walking through the beautiful times square of ho chi Minh city.
The entrance ticket to visit the sky deck of Bitexco financial tower is of 200,000 dongs. But it's ok to give that much for that view. My suggestion is to go around 5/5:30 in the evening so that you can see both the Before lights and after lights view.
And after This hectic schedule in this City I have went back to my room and Freshed up and came back to street searching for best Banh Mi(45,000 dongs) and I have tasted it finally. It is great. And it ended my first day in the largest city of the country.
Sleepy sleepy ....
I have shared some images . I hope you like it.
Bonus- I have added some images which I have captured from the flight during Bangkok to Vietnam. The sight Is just surreal. Do check.
