Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Very, very eye opening and shocking. It is completely unfathomable how genocide and war crimes have happened countless times over the course of history and continue to happen to this very day by stronger powers onto weaker ones. Very sobering experience indeed.

    A strong reminder for everyone to enjoy whatever peace, prosperity and freedom that they have as things can change into an apocalyptic nightmare in just the blink of an eye

    The intricate tunnel network, with its hidden air vents, hospitals, and traps for enemies, demonstrated the ingenuity and resilience of the Vietnamese fighters. This experience provided a powerful perspective on the realities of the Vietnam War and the sacrifices made.

    Built in the 1880s, the Central Post Office is a significant symbol of Ho Chi Minh City in view of its lovely Viledieu design. Not only could Visitors enjoy the magnificent view of the building, they could take the opportunity to send a postcard home at the place.

    The independence palace was a great visit, I enjoyed the history, the information available and the set up of the various rooms. Well furnished, some beautiful art work, and well maintained grounds to walk around.

    My first skyscraper, lovely experience. You can arrive until the 49th floor with a very little cost. I suggest to visit it around sunset, all the commercial area and the skyscrapers around will sparkle of lights. The view is at 360° over the town, unfortunately the reflection of the internal lights troubles the pictures and you need to writhe in order to find the right spot.

    This is the best e games hotel at HCMC with excellent services

    All the staff are courteous and polite and made you feel very welcome.

    They have a very high standard of hygiene
    They wipe clean each console after a customer has ended his play.

    The washroom is very clean with toiletries including mouth wash

    On my first visit, they give me a $20 e voucher and get meals after playing for a short while.

    The staff are worth tipping for providing excellent services.

    The elegant Saigon Opera House, also known as The Municipal Theatre of Ho Chi Minh City, is an eye-candy for architecture lovers, especially fans of the French colonial style.

    Fantastic market which provides a great feel for daily life in Vietnam, the market is visited by people from around the globe and offers everything from fresh seafood to trinkets and gifts. It’s worth a visit but does get very busy.

    Maybe you should swot up on the local history before you visit. It is a place of great importance for Vietnam and its past. Lots of restaurants nearby and just 300 meters from the theatre where the AO show incase you want to combine the visit.

    Went there for dinner, on average you’ll spend about VND125,000 per person or approximately seven Australian dollars, and you will be full as a goog, about 40 different stalls to choose from. Everything appeared clean, so if you’ve not been to Vietnam before, it’s probably a good place to start if you’re a bit suss, or have a young family. Beers are about AUD1.50 each. Note that on Google Maps the location Ben Nghe Food market is incorrect but…it is only approximately 200 m from where it is shown on Google Maps. Look on Google Maps for Ben Thanh Street Food Market, it is the same thing. Hope this helps. Interesting pics in the gents…(see photos).

    This is the main walking street stretching from the People's Committee (former French City Hall) all the way down to Saigon river promenade.
    During the day it's very average, but it comes alive at night with many street food vendors, street performers and thousands of locals hanging out.

    Normally I don’t like traditional spectacles like dances or puppets, but I must admit that this one has been funny and pleasant, do not miss it during your stay in Saigon. Just a note, the sits are quite uncomfortable for tall or sturdy people.

    Buy Vien street is sheer insanity. Think Las Vegas but just in a way more condensed area. Think La Placita if you have ever been to Puerto Rico.... yeah that's the perfect comparison.

    We walked by here a couple times during the day, and it's just nasty ahahahah but this place isn't made for the day. Nobody should see this place during the day.....

    If you want to go out at night and get ACTIVE, this is the place. Strips of bars BLASTING music with their doors wide open to the street, lights flashing in every direction, live music, ladies provocatively dancing on pedestals outside of bars, guys trying to sell you literally every drug under the sun and then some (allegedly).

    It's so overstimulating and pretty godless, but I know some of y'all love that......... Couldn't be me...........
