Hi Tyler,
i'm on my way to Siem Reap by tomorrow.The bus leaves at 730am from Khao San Road then arrives in Siem Reap at about 8pm. Where have you stayed in Siem Reap? I will stay there for two nites then move to Phnom Pehn for another two nites then go to Vietnam. I really want to see the VC tunnel.
Anyway, where have you stayed in HCM? I heard its better to go to Pam Ngu Lao area.....hope i can find a dorm there to stay too. Thanks for your help/Stephen

Hi Stephen,

You must be in HCMC at the moment i guess. I was working at Pham Ngu Lao area. About guesthouse below 6USD you can ask the local women in blue shirts. They will help you for place.
To see Vietcong tunnels which we call Cu Chi tunnels. You can take half day tour to Cu Chi or you can combine Cu Chi tunnel to Cao Dai temple for 1 day tour. The price is around 7-10usd. You could contact TNK or Sinh or TM Brother travel agent for details.
If you need more help, you could contact me.
Wishing you a wonderful trip to VietNam.
