Day trip to the Cu Chi tunnels was very cheap and worth it, comfy... More

You go to this place for the schnitzel.... and you won't be disappointed! They're massive! Like the chef has filleted a whole chicken, crumbed and fried it. (Share one between two if you're not I-haven't-eaten-in-two-weeks hungry) My favourite is the Mexican schnitzel, but I'll also give props to the calamari one... it's like an entree on top of your main!!...

Stayed here for 4d3n. The room was clean though the bathroom was small it's still manageable specially for the price. Hotel's location is very near to everything, foods, market, park, etc. The family running the guesthouse is so hospitable, they never forget to greet you with smile.
