  1. I think Reekay’s 6 months honeymoon in Vn is over, and soon he will find out Vietnam is no different from The Philippine, some people even say that Filipinas are better

  2. Good informative video. Good audio and noise rejection. For a more natural presentation, perhaps consider ear buds if you must monitor the audio, can't imagine why the audio needs monitoring tho… 😉 And, thank you Reekay as always.

  3. Love the video's Great information. With the banking side of things did you keep your US accounts and just transfer money as needed with transferwise or open a Viet account and use transferwise as wireless transfer ?

  4. That was great advice from Reekay at the end. Grab is a fantastic way to get around and dirt cheap if you pay using a linked electronic wallet through say Timo. Local sim card is essential also because a lot of Vietnamese are good at texting English even if their speech isn't so hot.

  5. That was a great vid. Huge thank you. Only other aspect I would have liked touched upon is how much english the local vietnamese have in the various districts. I would like to try numerous small family shops but unsure if they would speak any english at all.

  6. Why run the A/C 24 hours a day ? You go out for 6 hours it has to stay on ? Come home , turn it on , do some exercise , take a shower , you come out you feel cold .

  7. If I were you I'd stay far away from Reekay. The guy is a known sexual predator. He was exploiting filipina girls. He's a complete sicko. Don't fall for the smooth talk and mild mannered BS. Most con artists and sociopaths use this approach.

  8. Very Professional. You guy's are wealth of knowledge for travel. What I like about Siagon is the variety of the different district's. Very resonable to live a good life style. What about worshiping God where could you do that there.

  9. You both tocuhed on getting a SIM and Grab account set up, Could you do a video detailing that and other must-do's on arrival? Visa runs would also be useful.
