Start of Program
Jan 19, 2015
In the early evening during orientation at program hotel on Day 3 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
You will be staying at the Grand Hotel that night.
Location: Ho Chi Minh City
Transportation to site: If independent flights do not coincide with the designated group transfer, it will be the responsibility of the participant/s to make arrangements to get to the program site. At Tan Son Nhat International Airport, taxis line up, with proper police regulation outside of the airport. A metered taxi ride to the city costs about US $5-7 (subject to change) or you can ask for a fixed rate ($4-6) (subject to change). Airport Taxi and Saigon Taxi are among the most popular and reliable companies. It is better that you line up to get the regulated taxi than waving one off the road. The transfer from the Tan Son Nhat International Airport to the Grand Hotel will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes (7 km) depending on the traffic. Private arrival and departure transfers -at an additional cost- may be arranged in advance by calling Road Scholar Travel Services.
