I'm going to vietnam alone this May for 4days. I'm still confused where is the nice route and place for me to stay, Distric 1 or 7? Because I've an appointment on Distric 7 in daylight, but I want to stroll around the city at night. Since I'm alone traveller so I'll take a taxi.

Hi, If you take a look at Ho Chi Minh 's map, you can see that district 1 is close to district 7, there also have buses and the bus map (http://www.vidiani.com/?p=4688). It's ok for you to stay in district 1, enjoy nightlife, then go to district 7 and return within a day.

You should know that taxi scams in all of Vietnam are a major problem there - do your research about this country, and when you do use cabs, ask your hotel reception for a recommendation.

Hi tea genaration,
In your case, you should live in district 1, because ditrict 1 is the central of Ho Chi Minh city, where you can visit many famous place, such as: Ben Thanh market, remain war museum, Duc Ba church,... From districh 1 to 7 just 15 - 25 minutes, so it is very easy to go to district 7 by taxi.
Wish you have a nice trip to Ho Chi Minh, Viet Nam!
Viet Nam my homeland!
