holiday @ ho chi minh - d'journey is begin

Assalamualaikum..

phewwww..lama giler nk start..dh lama dh on the mark get set go..tp bila nk go jek terbantut..ekeke:D so..lets begin..alhamdulillah..syukur pd rezekiNya..sampai jgk kami di bumi vietnam..melihat dan memahami budaya asing di tpt org..

ok..1st thing 1st..2 days before nk berangkat aku dh packing ok..bersemangat..bw beg besoooo sketul pastu bawa backpack 2 ketul...baju pn bajet je..bw ngam2..sbb intention nk shopping kt snaa..so spare space..ekeek:D


 ~of course before g holiday buat survey dulu kan..ape aktiviti nk buat kt sana..and tau tips2 do and dont..another thing yg penting adlh bende alah ni..mmg wajib dibuat..currency converter..even hubby dh download currency converter dlm phone..tp aku prefer guna ni..senang..guna phone nk kena masuk passcode la..pastu nk key in amount la..leceh..mmg la exact figure tp xperlu la too details..ckp sekadar kita tau anggaran convetion rate..hehe..:p~

 ~see gelap lg kt luar tu..flight kami kol 7.05am ok..subuh shapie tu..haih..asyik rescheduled jek..makanya kami harus gerak dr umah seawal 4.30am..nak naik bas ke lcct lg..and mmg ade masa lg before boarding..better awal dr lmbt..even dh buat self check in..tp still gk kena beratur kt kaunter utk check in luggage..cuma cpt sket la proses dia sbb kita dh self check in..ala self check in tru mobile jek..once dh confirm booking flight, bole terus check in..keistimewaan dia..kita akn dpt seat sederet la 3 beranak..klu last minute check in kt kaunter, kadang terpisah sbb seat byk dh penuh..so kwn2..buat self check in ok :)~

 ~ok dh smpai lcct..tunggu boarding gate buka and tunggu masa nk boarding..aQeel boring je..ngantuk pn ye tu..hehe...kalau pegi vietnam xperlu visa ok..cukup hnya bawa passport international...IC malaysia pn tinggal je ler..xlaku pn ic mesia kt negara org..klu hilang kang lagi haru..surat beranak anak pn xyah bawa..international passport tu adlh ID kita di negara org.. :)


 ~hehe..membunuh masa di dalam flight:p~

 ~bekalan junkfood..ouh i likeeeeeee sekut ni..kecik2 dulu sgttt suka mkn ni..sape geng ngn aku? hehe:p~

 ~ok dh nmpk dh bumi vietnam..padat giler ok perumahan kt sana..maklum ler vietnam population is 80millions ok.Ho Chi Minh a.k.a Saigon shj 10 millions population..kalau Hanoi xtau la berapa plak..sbb Saigon smaller than Hanoi...Saigon ni nama lama Ho Chi Minh..trletak di vietnam selatan..manakala Hanoi vietnam utara...dr 10 million, 5mil org bawa motosikal..sbb tu sgt padat ngn motosikal..tgk je la gbr kt bawah2 ni..~

 ~airport dia boleh tahan canggih jgk..and nmpk je kecik tp besar jgk..bersih jek..tapiiii pegawai imigresen kt kaunter tu sgt la x friendly..muka masam mencuka..garang plak tu..ok lps dh keluar imigresen..p cari teksi dekat kaunter teksi di bhgn dlm airport..jgn cari kt luar airport..sbb tu mcm ulat teksi..mahal giler..unless u all dh chartered siap2 dr malaysia..rate kt dlm airport, teksi ke hotel which is area district 1 (kwsn Ben Thanh Market) adlh USD10 (RM35/VND210K) sehala..kalau kt luar airport dia tekannya VND500K (RM75/USD25)..perjalanan dr airport ke hotel kami dlm 20 minit jek..dekat tp sebab traffic slow..so tu yg lmbt sket..dekat vietnam ni accept USD jgk...kt ben thanh market siap accept RM lg..aku mmg xtukar byk duit VND (pronounce: Dong) pun..USD pn tukar sket and selebhnya RM..selagi bole guna RM gunala RM..senang.hehe..tp korang kena tnya in USD / VND dulu hrga brg2 tu..then baru tnya in RM~

~on d way ke hotel..kt sana pnya traffic mmg cenggini..paling laju bole pegi 40kmj je kot..mmg xbole nk laju sbb byk moto n keta..sgt bykkkkk ok..moto especially..tp xpnh pn nmpk eksiden or nyaris2 eksiden..dorang dh biasa..selamba je nk masuk simpang xyah signal..ala2 mcm ade tolak ansur jgk la..dorang xkan langgar kalau korang melintas depan dorang..dorang akn elak..kalau jln kaki pn camtu..klu nk lintas..jln jek..dorang yg akn elak..~

 ~stesen minyak..~

 ~round about yg sgt byk simpang..hahaha~

 ~pemandangan biasa..mcm kt indon gk..hehe~

 ~see..motor sesaja..and uniknya helmet dorang tu mcm bentuk cap jek..tp ade tali..mula2 nmpk aku ingt undang2 dorang benarkan pakai cap je..xyah pakai helmet..rupanya cap tu adlh helmet siap dh ade tali ikat bwh dagu..hehe..so nmpk smart la kan..:p tp safety xtau ler:D~


 ~mostly dorang pakai musk..ye la byk sgt kenderaan kan..berasap..xpsal2 mkn asap jek..tgk ler wayar yg berserabut tu..haih..kesian pekerja telco..jenuh nk cari wayar..hehe..rsnya tu bercampur ngn wayar elektrik tu..siap ade gbr kt t-shirt yg dijual kt pasar mlm..gbr wayar serabut tu pastu ade tulis "vietnam telco". ekek:D~

 ~kt ho chi minh ni..kalau nk naik taxi, naik yg company Vinasun (color putih) / Mailindh (color hijau) jek..sbb dorang mmg guna meter dan caj kita pn ikut btl2 kt meter...ade sorang kakak ni btau aku..borak2 masa nk pegi Delta Mekong tour tu..dia ckp taxi2 lain caj merapu2..xikut meter..so to be safe guna yg 2 company ni je la..~


 ~ok dh smpai dh hotel kami..customer service kt sana mmg superb la..sgt helpful dan ramah..aku booked hotel ni tru Agoda..trus amik utk 4 hari and byr trus..senang..rate dia dlm RM50++ je per nite..okla tu..bknnya nk dok lama2 dlm hotel kan..hehe..utk tido je pn..~

 ~ni la bilik dia..stdrd room..ok la..even x spacious, tp comfy la..bersih dan sejukkkk..hehe..~

 ~ade bath tub lagi ok..aQeel sgt sonot lerrrr..asal balik hotel je terjun bath tub..yg penting toilet bersih..~

 ~kt sana mmg susah nk dpt foods halal..ade la beberapa restoran halal tp sgt la mahal dan rasa plak so-so jek..blh la lapik perut..and sometimes..bila korang nk pegi tu..penuh jek..sbb ramai sgt org malaysia g sana utk shopping..ade certain restoran halal plk dh kena chartered dgn travel agent utk droang pnya tourists.stall tepi jln jgn harap ler nk jual food halal..even nmpk menyelerakan tp xhalal..huhu..unlike krabi..sgt senang dpt food halal yg sedap..so klu g vietnam bw la bekalan byk2..rendang segera dan sambal tumis segera dlm tin tu.mmg sedap ok..highly recommended la..brand ayamas dan yeos..sedap btl mkn ngn roti..mkn ngn nasi pn sodap..klu tau bw byk2..xyah g kedai dh..hehe..~

 ~msti la kena ade peta..amik masa kt airport..ok places of interest..ala2 tpt yg wajib dilawati gitu..hehe..yg bulat kuning tu adlh ben thanh market..ade byk hotel dekat slbh ben thanh market tu..n rate pn bole tahan la murah jgk..xsmpai rm100 per nite..yg petak merah tu Reunification Palace and yg hijau tu Notre Dame Cathedral & Post Office :D Notre Dame Cathedral tu church..xyah ler g masuk dlm plak..just tgk senibina dia je la..binaan zmn kolonial perancis..ok details tpt2 ni later ok..dlm n3 khas:p kesimplannya kalu nk g ho chi minh ..amik hotel kt area district 1 and yg dekat ngn ben thanh market..coz every nite ade night market..siang plak dlm ben thanh market tu penuh ngn jualan..tpt org borong brg utk buat bisnes.. ;)~

ok..next n3 utk 1st aktiviti kitorang @ ho chi minh ^_^..thanks for reading..enjoy ;)
