Vietman Venture Day 2

HCMC - Luan Vu Hotel

View Vietnam Venture on Chapincita's travel map.

5:20 PM Arrived at HCMC airport, processed my entry visa, paid the $25 fee and was on my way out looking for my ride to the hotel. Agoda contacted me to inform me the hotel would like confirmation of my airport transfer but upon arrival there was no pick up.
Fortunately there is a help desk at the airport exit that helped me try to call the hotel. The woman I was taken to wanted to dial the number without telling me how much it would be for the call. I insisted on knowing the charge before she dialed. She said $10 US dollar. I walked away. Went back to the service desk and asked for a taxi. Paid $10 got a stress free ride well worth the money for the distance and the driving skill. Quiet driver, probably spoke no English, I tipped him and we were both happy. 
I liked the Luan Vu hotel. It is basic but very comfortable and clean. I decided to extend extend.

Because I prefer to stay in the “Backpackers” district, I was a bit concerned about what to expect upon arrival. Luan Vu is half way down a little alley but to my pleasant surprise, when I arrived, someone had just washed down the alley. It was still wet and smelled of detergent. This gave me hope that cleanliness was not a stranger in this country.
I slept like a log in my little modest room.
