Hi

Im from Saigon, Vietnam and I am planning my first trip to USA cities: Sanfrancisco, Las Vegas & NYC.

I am a budget traveller (student) so I need help on looking for budget hotel (but close to city center, near public transport, travel assistance, safe & secured), place to visit, eat and meet.

Thank you

I will be able to help you with Las Vegas. Send me a PM with your schedule and I will line up cheap accommodation and may join you for a buffet at one of our hotels.

hi there! nothing is as cheap as in vietnam - especially Vegas, SF and NY! Actually, you've picked 3 of the expensive cities to visit. The cheapest way to travel is to stay with family and friends and spend the cash on sightseeing, dining and exploring the night life (this is very different than in Vietnam).

while you're in USA - be sure to taste the pizza since there is no such thing in Vietnam. Happy travels!

I had a pizza in Hanoi! That was the first and last. The only western cuisine I've tried that tastes good in Vietnam is French. Influence and experience from many years. Vietnamese cuisine.... mmmmmmmmm
