HCMC "Hot Tocs"

Recommended Posts

The Serpent

Hi Lads

 

Has anyone come across any kind of list of the "Hot Tocs" in HCMC across any of the threads

 

The two I have managed to glean from the threads, but as I've seen discussed, there are many many more but names are not mentioned are:

 

"My Tien” a Hot Toc on 90 Dien Bien Phu

“Benny a Hot” Toc on 110 Dien Bien Phu

Serpent,

 

That's all you need to get started. They are both a great time for a quick stop. A must stop for me when I'm in HCMC.

 

NPK st. in D1 has several also. I have only been there once (84 NPK). It was fantastic with similar pricing, or maybe a Touch higher than Benny's. In my mind, they're all a good deal and very fun places to take the edge off.

 

I know that on my next trip, I will take the advice I've read about getting down to D7, where there are many Hot Tocs. It appears to be a very short cab or xe om ride down there.

 

Good luck to you

Thanks Earlybird

 

I going to HCMC for 4 days and I didn't want to do the same place twice, that's why I started the thread to find other options

 

Sounds like D7 is the place to go for Hot Tocs

 

Btw, what's a fair price to get to D7 from D1 with a cab???

Getting around is very inexpensive, maybe 40k vnd. I always carry a small notebook in my pocket to write down an address or crossroads and to what district I'm going and hand it to the driver. And a business card of my hotel, to eventually get me back to home base.

Lots of Hot Tocs on Le Van Luong and Nguyen Thi Thap in District 7 ,Near Lottemart.You may need a bit of the lingo. Only know from reputation from mates as a bit too close to home for me!Probably around 60,000 VND in cab from D1.

Actually, I do the same Earlybird

 

Thanks for your advise shearer68 & Earlybird, sounds like around $50K should be the right price to get me to D7

If a moto takes you there, he'll get a commission. Have him drop you nearby.

I don't know much about the places in dist 7 as I have only been there once. The places I went to were coffee shops, not hair cut places. There are FS massage places as well in the area.
