- Vietnam use Vn Dong not USD

- If you travel to hcmc, some parts of the city like District 5 and District 6 have people who speaks Chinese and Cantonese

- don't use your phone when you are walking along the streets

- enjoy!

Yea coconut snails blew my mind when I first had it. And other types of shell dishes also very good, too bad joo chiat not much variety to satisfy my mouth cravings.

you can buy bread. Got other types of seafood, e.g clams, oysters, crab, prawns, scallops, etc

buy the snails in coconut gravy, very nice

Hmm I can't remember the entrance. But the sitting area is huge, with many small tables and chairs. I think that street has many snails restaurants.

Oc Dao Nguyen Trai

This one?

C79 Nguyễn Trăi, Phường Nguyễn Cư Trinh, Quận 1, Hồ Chí Minh, Vietnam

The restaurant is inside the small lanes



The entrance is like this.

They serve all kinds of snails n shells and go with Banh Mi

Usually it's super packed by 6pm and by 730pm, alot of main dishes sold out

You see the rate in Sin is how much

Pure rate is 100 sgd = 1.709.000 VND

Anything less than 1.69 million per 100sgd .... Skip

You can change around Ben Thanh market

if you're not changing a lot of money, suggest u just change in singapore, it's not too much of a difference so long u go to a decent money changer.

if u not sure how much u will spend, then change a few hundred in singapore and bring extra SGD there in case ba.

Singapore 16,000 plus only go there 17,000 plus. Use transferwise even more than exchanging there.

When using grab, pay with transferwise rather than grab mastercard. The former has got a very favorable exchange rate.

lol the way u compare "16,000 plus vs 17,000 plus" then of course a lot of difference. but is actually 16900 vs 17100 at most.

transferwise is similar with revolut and other services, yes u get a good rate but will only work with mastercard services. grab wise someone told me revolut doesn't work with it but i not sure about transferwise.

regardless, u still need cash on the go for street food. unless u intend to eat at malls and restaurants that accept mastercard all the time..
