I was hungover on this day so not much happened apart from checking out a Bui Vien alley and changing hotels from Gia Vien to Ha My 3... Parts of this video include: 0:04 1pm at Gia Vien hotel, full video review here: https://youtu.be/1H4LJDxDyAo 1:07 Huong Vy 24 hr bar/restaurant, good place for meeting fellow travellers 1:51 Oasis swimming pool/restaurant, connected to the Beautiful Saigon boutique hotel. Popular hotel with rooms from $40+ 2:40 Nonla Guys Mexican fusion cuisine, very highly ranked on tripadvisor 3:18 Chi's Cafe, another popular place to eat 4:30 Thumbnail part 5:40 Vinasun taxi ride to Ha My 3 hotel... 6:12 Crazy Viet roads, the blue bus ran a red light? 6:30 Passing Ben Thanh market 9:27 Map of the taxi journey, I didn't feel like walking 1km in the midday sun with my bags 9:36 Ha My 3 hotel video review (more info below) 14:55 Circle K convenience store run, no beer as I was hungover :) 16:38 Outro Additional notes: This video was from a Visa run to Vietnam, where I stayed in the capital city of Saigon for a few days. Ha My 3 hotel (NB: this hotel might have changed its name to Ha My hotel as of Oct 2018) The Good: - Great central location, next to Ben Thanh market and walkable to Bui Vien street - Cheap rooms, standard rooms start from $22 which is excellent value for the area - Clean and spacious - No problems getting a girl back, I took a date back with no issues The Bad: - Very dated decor & room, could put some people off - No safe in the room, could be a deal breaker for some - No coffee/tea facilities despite there being a kettle - Noise issues from the street noise The Ugly: - Windows were perhaps the squeakiest ever on a Bkk112 hotel review video and there was a birds nest in the aircon unit! :) Overall: I had a good stay at Ha My 3 hotel but it did feel like a step down when changing from Gia Vien. I recommend this place to seasoned budget travellers only as it was a bit rough around the edges as you can see from the video... Thank you for watching, and subscribe for more videos. NB: Saigon / Ho Chi Minh City are the same city, the name was changed after the 70s. The locals all call it Saigon so that's what I call it here.
