In Ho Chi Minh city, as in any other major Asian city has its own Chinatown. It is district No. 5 (District 5). The area itself is picturesque and interesting, and is a kind of attraction. Because if you have enough time to go to the area, walk around it and visit the Cho Binh Tay market. However, the trip will take at least half a day.

In the area you can see several Chinese temples, lots of shopping stalls, including those selling Chinese medicines, and of course, a lot of markets.

Good day! Happy!
What is the amps. will you need to buy and apply for a visa in Vietnam, if you arrive from Kombodzhi a few hours before departure to Russia, i.e., the logic we transfer passengers to and from the airport is not going to go... Logic dictates that a visa should not, and come not to the home terminal, but who will disassemble them! very worried...
Thank You in advance for the answer! ...

Hello! You also happy!
If you are sure you no change of the airport terminal and tickets purchased in one airline, then no difficulty, just on arrival go to transit, and not to yield, and everything is OK. If you do not know where, contact the staff, they will direct you. Just need to remember to register for all flights and Luggage to the end point once in Cambodia.
If you have tickets of different airlines and they are acquired separately, then there is a problem. Theoretically, you should get out of the international zone, to Luggage, to check in with another company Luggage. It may be possible to pay staff at the airport of Ho Chi Minh city, and they arrange everything for you, but in practice I did not come, I have always been a change of terminal. ...

But on the other hand, something totally forgot this option: you can in fact register for the second flight, get baggage (he's issued in the international zone), and already there to contact the staff to place your Luggage on the plane. Theoretically it should work. ...

Got tickets from Nha Trang to Singapore via Saigon. Docked 2 hours, other companies are different. To Saigon turns a domestic flight, then the international registration and customs. There's no Luggage. Do you think you have time? ...

For me, it's like Russian roulette to play, as all kick butt. If Nha Trang flight is even slightly delayed, you can not catch. Judge for yourself: even if you arrive on time and passengers aboard will release clear on the arrival time of the flight, it is necessary for the terminal to navigate to find a way to do a run of 300 meters to the international terminal, and there to quickly navigate and find the counter for registration. Even if you are a Sprinter, will take about 20 minutes. By the way, can get a bus from the airplane after landing, rather than the "passageiros", then another 20 minutes add, as long as all the passengers unloaded. Try at least online check-in done in advance, to not to waste time.
However, if the registration time, then pass the passport and customs control in time. The most important thing that the passport was not all, if you shout and ask to skip the queue. At the customs control everything as usual - the green and red channel, so if the customs officer you do not "like", it will pass instantly. ...
