I’m in Saigon, at the hostel and all is good (and free internet no less!). The first “snag” was when I got to immigration and they said that I had to get into another line for “visa on arrival” – this, after already waiting 20 min. No big deal, glad I printed my passport photo ahead of time (see TK, it was worth the wait!). There are no ATM machines inside the airport – and the exchange places wouldn’t take my travelers checks (anybody know what they are good for?!). I had just enough USD to pay the $25 passport stamp. So a taxi driver asks me what I’m looking for. He says there are no ATMs at the airport – but the lady inside said there was one just outside. When we got to it, it wasn’t working. In hindsight, I should have checked to make sure it was plugged in! He then said he would take me to the hostel for $15 (~225,000 dong). This seemed pretty expensive to me – but he and the LONG line for metered taxis convinced me. He stopped at an ATM as well. After getting to the hostel, and being very pleased that they had a room (with A/C even!), they said it should have cost me only 70,000 dong. D’OH! Oh well… at least he took me to the right place! Time to explore a bit of Saigon and get some food!
