    Thumbs up Playing at HCMC

    Hi Loh,
    Yes, I am a frequent traveller to HCMC. I will up there for business trips. During daytime, I will travel with my Vietnam counterpart, whereas nitetime, I will usually go for games.I came to know two groups of Vietnamese and they are playing badminton almost every nites. OK. Here is the fees to pay if u play regularly with them.For Ky Hoa group, they charge $150,000 Dong for three days a week's game. If u opt for everyday, then the charges will be $250,000 Dong.For An Duong Vuong 's group, the charges is $100,000 Dong for three days per week. Just for yr infor, the exchange rate for Spore dollar is S$1/- is to about $9400/- Dong. As for Hotel, the carges can range from US$60/- per nite to US$80/- per nite for 3* to 4*, depend on Districts.I dont stay in hotel.As I am frequently go there, I stay in my rented apartment. The airfare from Singapore to Vietanm with return trip is around S$360/-++. If u are going on SQ with two pax n return at the same time, then it is cheaper. Promotion lah! It is possible to arrange for Spore BC members to have friendly games with them but must be at HCMC. They are some but not many who also travel out of Vietnam but not frequently.The cost of living there is cheap. As for food, most of our Sporeans may find the road side or normal eating shops not so hygienic but it is ok.Some of the restaurants in District 1 serve wonderful and delicious foods. U may also go for a Saigon river boat cruise with music and food serve on board.The cruise will always last at least for an hour or more.As for return trip, remember to have US$12/- or $200,000/- Dong ready for airport tax.Just PM me if u are interested in the makan places.Thanks.

    I see that you'll be going again next week. Are you a frequent traveller there? Care to tell us how much it costs for the basics like return air fare, hotel rate (like the one you are staying, what sort of basic facilities, are they ok?), internal transportation, food. I guess they'll be much cheaper than in Spore.

    Is is possible to arrange a friendly match with BC Singapore, if we are able to interest members here to make a trip there?

    Hello Lee

    You can be our Singapore resource person on Vietnam HCMC badminton. You seem to know the badminton scene there very well. And you gave us a useful guide to the financial aspects as well.

    I'm sure from now onwards, many Singaporean BFers will consult you before making a badminton trip up north. You'll be our Vietnam specialist.

    Thank you once again for being so helpful.

    Default badmint cum holiday in HCMC

    Hi All,

    I guess we are should be enternally grateful to Birdiegut in providing helpful info regarding badminton in HCMC. To side track the matter, I believe tourism there is set to boom. Now that relationships between American and Vietnam has improved with Vietnam Airline flying to America this month (after 30 long years of waiting), there will be lots of Americans who will be visit Nam either as a place or for sentimental reason such as the war veterans who fought in Vietnam ( including US presidential hopeful Senator Kerry whose fighter plane was shot down and was jailed in Hanoi Hilton). This was reinforced by yesterday TV show interview with Eugene Levy and Samuel L Jackson ( the duo in their latest movie), where Jackson mentioned that his next holiday is to visit HCMC and check it out for himself because he has heard so much about the place. That was a good promotion for Vietnam. David Hasselhoff was on the first United Airline flight to HCMC early this year.

    A holiday combine with a bit of badminton will be fun in Vietnam. If you can, make a side trip to Nha Trang in Central Vietnam for a holidays. People keep saying it is like Phuket 30 years ago.

    Hi Birdiegut
    Good to see you are a frequent visitor to Vietnam.You should be getting all the frequent points judging by all the trips there.I hope you do play some badminton there. Yes there are lots of eating places in HCMC but in actual fact I was eating Malaysian food regularly at Satay House in Mach Din Chi. Maybe it was near where I lived.But the pho place next door is equally good too if you want a change of taste. As for the river cruise, you might as well skip the food (so and so only) and just take the boat trip which usually leaves at about 9.00. After that you can all have a drink or two at that cowboy pub opposite the pier shouting Hoi ( I never knew what hoi meant but I believe it to be cheers/yam seng/kam pei). That's all for food and drinks for the moment.Now, we must not divert from badminton....
    Cheers and all the best.

    Thumbs up Playing HCMC

    Hi
    Just imagine today, I play with the Distric 10 champion at 553, Nguyen Tri Phuong. Wow, his skill is fantastic. Heard that he played badminton since he was a child. Well, my vietnamese partners and me got thrashed, 21 to 12 My opponents kept on attacking my partner. Maybe they know my partner is not that experienced. Well, that is the way of the game. His weapon is his powerful smash. Got many good players too.Enjoy the games there. In future, if u are here,hope u can join in

    Hello Adidas,

    Your District 10 champion certainly looks impressive.HCMC is the powerhouse of badminton in Vietnam and the top Vietnamese players are from that city ( it's similar in Australia where most of the top players are all mostly Victorians).Their standard is nowhere near to the other South East Asian powerhouse like Malaysia, Indonesia or Thailand.However the game is extremely popular there and they have hired many Chinese coaches to raise their standard.It's a matter of time before their standard starts to attract attention but not now.They have only one good player Nguyen Tien Minh at regional circuit level.I read somewhere that a Vietnamese player is the captain of the NUS badminton team.On the whole, their standard can only go up.

    Cheers

    Dear Birdiegut,

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately we will just miss each other as I will only fly into HCMC on the 9th April and leave on the 6th May. I will bring my racket any way just in case. If you can help me in any way on playing in HCMC, I will be most grateful. I will be staying in the Nguyen Dien Chieu area near to Cach Mach Trang Tam.

    Many thanks

    Permanis
