Interaction with Guests

I'm in Canada right now but I have my staff and my parents at home to host you during your stay. If you have any problem, email me, I check email every minute.

The Neighborhood

People live around you in other apartments are mostly expats and very professional working people. However, you won't see them often as they're often not at home until late or maybe on business trip.

There are many good foods and nice bars around the area; from cheap, average to very classy one. You can find many kind of foods: Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Italian, vegetarian, etc within walking distance. If you want to try all the good food around the area, spend at least 1 week and eat more than 3 meals per day. Prepare to gain weight!!

Getting around

You can try bus no 35 which is a public transport specialized for tourist. You can catch bus 35 at the Central bus station right opposite the International Plaza building (few steps away). The cost is around $0.30 (30 cent) for each ride, the bus route will take you around District 1 and city most famous landmark.

The bus is brand new one, equipped with air con so pretty comfortable. Prepare some small amount money before boarding this bus as I don't think the driver can have lots of money to change your big note.

Also pay attention to pickpocket, don't be a victim. If not necessary, leave your passport and important stuff at home.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Perfect apartment in a great location! My partner and his parents stayed in this twp bedroom apartment, it had great views, clean rooms and bathrooms. Really felt at home and Van was very accommodating with out check in and check out times. All the places to go are in waking distance or a short and cheap taxi ride away. Felt like a hotel! Will definitely stay here again. Highly recommend this place!!

  • The four of us loved our stay. The apartment looked to be brand new, and everything was very clean. The beds were comfortable, the couches were even better. Full of amenities. The managers of the apartment were extremely helpful, nice, and accomodating. Great location - close to tons of restaurants, and a long walk or short cab to most sights. Would stay here again.

  • Our stay was an absolute pleasure. Van was incredibly considerate to our needs and her staff was kind and helpful. The apartment was nothing short of amazing. Great place, very clean, amazing views, tons of space, and right in the heart of HCMC.

    I highly recommend this listing.

  • Fantastic place and experience.
    Van was very responsive, and check-in was the easiest airBnB experience I have had. The apartment was brand new, clean, and well-stocked.
    Perfect location to explore Saigon from; I highly recommend this rental.

  • We loved Van's apartment;) Good location! We could walk everywhere. Her apartment was amazing! Very clean, big, modern.... We could stay there like our home. We loved it! Van was so kind giving us all the information through e-mail, very generous about check in-out time. We really appreciated all her help. We had another memorable trip. And we are definitely coming back here again for next visit! Thank you very much, Van;)

  • Nice apartment in a great location, just minutes away from the main backpacker/tourist district.

    Van's place was spotlessly clean and brand new.

    A bit of confusion over collecting the key but otherwise our stay went without a hitch.

    Would definitely recommend a visit to Van's apartment as some nice respite from the chaos of Saigon!

I love traveling, especially cultural and historical traveling. I'm currently working for a web-based company in Vietnam as Business Development Manager. Just happened to find Airbnb recently and immediately interested in the service. When I'm not working I can guide you around the city as meeting new people and having new friends is also my favourite.
