Fyfhfr 1088: I spent 3 days there free and easy. The traffic is chaotic but I got used to it within one day. The street food is okay as my companions and I did not get any stomach upset as we tried pho ga, pho bo and banh mi.  The coffee is too strong, too bitter and too sweet for us. When I asked the stallholder to add "hot water", she didn't understand and added more black coffee to my glass. The pho le (beef rice noodles) is the best.  Fresh fruit are very cheap. We went to the tallest building and had coffee and snacks on the 50th floor. The night view is very beautiful. Most important of all, the toilets at the coffee shops and small eateries are really very clean.  Taxis go by the metre and is very cheap but you have to be careful not to hop on an illegal one whose metre runs very rapidly. The only problem is most taxi-drivers do not understand English and there is no English signs directing us to tourist spots.
