#14 Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

We've been twice to Vietnam, the first time south to Ho Chi Minh and the second up north to Hanoi.  I preferred the latter but HCM is still a must see city.  Again, we paid far less for accommodation which was well priced and had all the amenities you needed (including free wi-fi) and I recall the beer being more than reasonable (but was it that cheap?).  We certainly paid far less for food, coffee sounds about right but I am not a drinker so you'd need to ask wifey and we didn't touch the wine.

We rarely notice the cost of wine as I don't drink the stuff and wifey is not keen on paying a premium for something that rarely impresses.  She keeps her palate for when we visit Izola where the grape is first class.
