We left LCCT via the morning flight and touched down at Tan Son Nhat/Ho Chi Minh International Airport after 2 hours of flight. The airport was not crowded and thus we managed to go through the Immigration Counter without any beeline.
Our taxi driver (pre-booked from the hotel) had waited for us at the departure lounge holding a sign board bearing my friend's name. After loaded our luggages into the car, he drove us to the hotel where we will be staying for four nights.
Phan Lan Hotel located @ Pham Ngu Lao Street
Condiments i.e slices of lime, pickled onion, chili flakes & sausages wrapped in banana leaf
Our order (fm l to r)plain beef noodles, spicy seafood noodles, a plate of mixed roasted meat, sausage + savoury cakes) & a portion of mixed greens
Do note that whenever you order beef noodles, you will be served with a plate of mixed greens containing basil leaves, shredded lemon grass & herbs/ulam which I enjoyed it so much.
Total bill came to VND96,000...indeed cheap
