This is my first-time travel to Vietnam. We spend total $350 which included flight, accommodation, food, and etc.

All our accommodation for this trip was book through Airbnb. Our hosts are very friendly and helpful to share with us what to eat and where to visit.

Toilet and bathroom are outside the rooms.

4 Nights - $55 per person.

We stayed at district 1 and 3 in Ho Chi Minh. However, we love to stay in district 1 because everything is just a walking distance to tourist place. You can save your money in transportation.
