Saigon Secrets (My Saigon Book 2)

by Elly Thuy Nguyen

Don’t get ripped off in Vietnam.

Buying any product or service in Vietnam can frustrate the bravest travelers. Often there are no posted prices, and visitors are fleeced. Don’t be clueless. Don’t get scammed. Saigon Secrets is Elly Thuy Nguyen’s insider guide to paying local prices and saving money in Vietnam. You’ll know where to shop, what to buy, and all the hows and whys of saving money in Vietnam. Most Vietnamese locals don’t know all this.

Elly gives you the lowdown.

Saigon Secrets details prices Vietnamese people pay for everything from a cup of coffee to a motorcycle taxi ride to a massage to a bowl of noodles. It also covers tipping tips: don’t believe the lie told to tourists that you must tip everywhere, but at the same time, know where tipping is absolutely required. Don’t fall for common scams. Don’t unknowingly hand your money to the mafia, thinking you’re helping street children.

Shop like you mean it.

Some things are a great deal in Saigon: for example, unbranded (or fake-branded) clothes, and top-quality eyeglasses and dental work. Other things are way too expensive in Saigon: for example, brand-name clothes and cosmetics, and most types of electronics. Know the difference, and know where to buy what. Saigon Secrets is like having a knowledgeable local friend in Saigon.

Learn the locals’ hacks.

You can skip the line at the airport visa counter and you can also get a ride from the airport into town for under $0.50 USD. You’re welcome.

Saigon Secrets is looking out for you in Vietnam.

Elly can’t be there with you. She’d love to actually, but, well, no, she has to go to work and get her motorbike fixed and take care of her cat and have dinner with her grandparents. So she’s sending you into town with this book. It’s almost as good as having Elly along with you, and unlike Elly, it’s not always stopping to drink coffee and take pictures.

Enjoy Vietnam.

Vietnam is a spectacular place. With Saigon Secrets, you can avoid the bad stuff, and focus on the good.

Downtown Berkeley (Visit Berkeley)

by Caroline White

The vibrant heartbeat of Berkeley is downtown. It is where the world class University of California at Berkeley, the renowned Arts District, gourmet restaurants, and local libations converge. Bustling sidewalks, ample public transportation with a BART stop right in the center of it all, bike parking, street parking and garages make downtown accessible to everyone ready to explore. Locals love all the happenings downtown, students go out with friends for weekend eats, and visitors get a taste of Berkeley’s unique character with all the culinary diversity and spectrum of people filling up tables and venue seating downtown.

With so many spots to eat, to drink, to hear music, and see art and theatre, it’s hard to know where to begin. The big draw for many visitors is the Tony Award wining Berkeley Rep Theatre, BAMPFA museum and art film house, Freight & Salvage performances, the Downtown Farmers’ Market Saturdays, and incredible restaurants like Comal, Gather, Lucia’s Pizzeria, Jupiter Craft Beer & Pizza, and Triple Rock Microbrewery.

West Berkeley (Visit Berkeley)

by Caroline White

With each passing year, West Berkeley continues to shed away a more industrial and automotive past, transforming into a local shopping and dining haven for neighborhood residents and visitors alike.

With ample amounts of warehouse space, microbreweries and urban wineries are moving in with tasting rooms, so that anyone who seeks to learn about the craft libation scene in Berkeley can experience how urban beer and wine is made locally. The geographic region of West Berkeley is quite large, and there are neighborhoods that can be explored on foot or bike. Fourth Street is known for high-end boutique shopping (mostly clothing and home goods) with a variety of restaurants to choose from, and a popular spot for a meal is Zut! Grab a coffee at Artís or experience a sake tasting at Takara Sake.

One of the main arteries in West Berkeley is San Pablo Avenue, which can be taken from one end of south Berkeley to the most northern part of Berkeley leading into Albany and El Cerrito. If you keep on driving on San Pablo, it will eventually bring you many miles north to the cities of Pinole and Hercules. San Pablo’s stretch in Berkeley is filled with restaurants, shops, cafes, and bars. Longbranch Saloon, Paisan and Caffe Trieste are good places to fuel or refuel, and when you are done with the southern end of San Pablo, keep on walking north to an authentic German meal at Gaumenkitzel or incredible tapas and paella at La Marcha!

This West Berkeley Microguide takes a deeper dive into what’s available for libations, dining, and shopping in the burgeoning artistic and cultural haven on the westside of Berkeley!
