"Eat before going to the airport." Over-pricing Tip by worldkiwi

Over-pricing, Ho Chi Minh City: 23 reviews and 7 photos

The one and only eating place at HCMC international airport is an absolute rip-off. Everything is priced in US dollars, which is very annoying. A sandwich I had there was US$4 and a bottle of water was an incredible US$2. I was so hungry and thirsty, that I forked out the cash. The prising of stuff in HCMC is annoying when it's in US dollars. Ofcourse, the locals think that all tourists are rich, but when you're not from the States, Japan, or Europe, a few US dollars can add up to too much!

Fun Alternatives: Make sure you get something to eat before you get to the airport, or if you can hold on, wait till you get on the plane.
