First Time In Saigon – $450 USD Apartment Tour ??
Phu Nhuan district, I don’t know if that was right, but that’s where we are No to a date at in my dad But only put your clothes in the closet in the real closet All right, so good morning guys, it’s about eight o’clock in the morning We couldn’t really set anything up first thing in the morning painting earlier because nothing really opens till about 8:00 o’clock is what it seems and We have amazing internet. It’s literally the fastest internet I’ve ever had. All right So first thing we have to do, of course we have to get around so we have to set up a motorbike know When I texted the landlord when we weren’t here in Vietnam she said she wanted a hundred and fifty dollars a month and I was just like what well There’s actually an American that I found his website Saigon bike rentals calm very very simple very easy to do and then they got The cheapest one here Honda if alpha is 40 years dollar-a-month But what is the different thing? This is like well that you have this shift do it if it’s cheap mini icon right this motorbike at all. You can’t know And it’s actually it’s an American owns it yeah, I mean, he’s like, yeah, do you have an American passport, right? Yeah. No problem dollars a month Okay do it that’s so cool one problem. So Everything settled. We just gotta do a couple more things Get this motorbike in 11 o’clock when he drops it off and then get a cell phone. That’s the next thing It’s a silver single a SIM card Not so fun. We have cell phones. Maybe both of our cell phones are horrible We had a tire person that we never I don’t think we ever ever buy the SIM card at the airport no charters It’s always a poisonous. Yeah, we always always use the Wi-Fi at the airport to Actually book grab or uber. Well, it’s not really available anymore in Southeast Asia But the case late last night Here in Ho Chi Minh City is not really practical because the Wi-Fi it doesn’t really work very well at the airport so we have to use taxi and that is the first time last night that we actually Take taxi and go by the meter from the airport, but it doesn’t take it doesn’t cause that bad Actually from what? Jimmy research grabbed supposed to cause about 45,000 Wynnum is down to come to our apartment the meter pop up at like 150 153 taxi driver doesn’t want to actually some girls have pushed us in the cab She’s like she literally popped his trunk and started throwing our suitcases in the trunk without him even getting out of the cab yet He had no choice. He had to take us. Yeah, that lady was a boss She’s a real I was the boss yeah, so we would take you the tour around with us our first day here in Ho Chi Minh City and you will see as Well what you need to expect If you don’t have an extra passport or a passport for them to hold It is actually two million dong down is a deposit and then the scooter and then the monthly rental so I actually Have an extra passport, although we shouldn’t use it But hopefully they’re not gonna use it for anything and then we’ll be good to go. I Had to go online and just search, you know cell phone shops and I had to pay Location of each one that was closest to us This one which is evidently two minutes Go Apparently, this is a no idea what this means. So it’s hopefully trigger this out It doesn’t speak much English. And so I think these are phone numbers. I have to choose from I think I don’t mind I Don’t mind what We’re gonna mark that as a complete fail I Played charades for like 45 minutes But now my phone is in via minis, and I don’t Understand how to get it back and he didn’t understand that he had to change it back And so I think we have to go to like a major cell phone shop or a mall This is like a baseball cap This is so cute. Look at it come here real quick Or they come with this as well. Yeah, that’s so cool Cheering number And I actually got 12 gigabytes of data for a hundred and twenty thousand plus 60 thousand for the sim card Very easy, she knew exactly what to do And we were done There are two men so is provider So you will see mobile phone and you will see via tell they’ll be like a bunch of people on a cell you would seem Like a small starter to me when earlier that I sell like a four and a SIM card That one is not quite legal here in Vietnam And so let me say something real quick jump in so when I was at the cell phone shop The guy actually had to call somebody that came in the store ten minutes later with a backpack full of SIM cards So that completely makes sense that they’re trying to cut it out because the cell phone shop I went to didn’t have SIM cards Had cell phone and then a guy with a backpack showed up full of SIM card 2016 and I started to it and they say it’s about like national scam. It’s show going on You have come to really like an official store and now getting tonight The reason why we pick the Airtel is because when we look up and we do research on either coverage of 40 You can see clearly that retail has more coverage than mobile phone All right, so we just got settled in our apartment it’s a brand new building that was just built in November 2018 I believe there’s like over 25 apartments each room comes with a smart card which is Beneficial for them I can’t leave my information. I can’t leave my air conditioning on so it’s a little But they’re very smart. I mean all electric water. Everything is included The beds are brand-new Everything is really brand new including there’s like a downstairs parking garage and it’s all gated by electric buttons You just hit the button or use your smart card. All of the common areas are all covered by CCTV that are run 24 hours a day. So, you know, you’re very very well protected I was actually really surprised because when I first got here I was like It’s like a fortress like you had to put in the code She sent you a picture to put in the code here walk in take your shoes off putting the code in the second door Go inside get your smart key Tap the smart key animal in the elevator in order to go up to your floor and then unlock your doors So there’s over three different key accesses Accesses before you even get to your apartment door full and along District I don’t know if that was right. But that’s where we are. We’re super close to the airport really convenient It was only like two dollars to get from the airport to here. This is many many minutes away Yeah it’s like seven minutes away and there’s a full place right across the street and then if you go down a little bit you can Go it’s info So if you’re being nice, you probably know my own And this family might nearby this family Martha the park there’s befo there’s father’s Talking shows bond me.
