Travel to Ho Cho Minh via Cebu Pacific, arrive at Tan Son Nat International Airport, around 2:00 Phl time. Vietnam is an hour delayed from our time. Flight was delayed for almost 30mins.
We easily passed the immigration, no visa for Filipinos :) Yey! Just in case be ready for your Hotel Accommodation and return ticket.
At the airport we exchanged USD to Vietnam currency, Dong. My 300USD is worth 6,270,000 Dong. Instant Millionaire :) based on my research this is the best changer since they have 0% commission.
We scout for a cab to bring us to Mui Ne, its a 5hr travel from Ho Chi Minh. Vinasun and Mai Linh are the legit cab operators here. Be ready since Vietnamese are really terrible in English. You really have to be patient. After haggling, we agreed on the 110USD fixed price with Comfort Savico cab operator. They will be giving you a business calling card where they will write the amount agreed. They asked us to pay in full right away, at first we are hesitant to pay but we did and just asked for receipts.
