Travel tip in Vietnam – Although a reputed 5 million people from HCM return to the country side at TET that still leaves another 5 million behind.

It appears the Vietnamese don't come out en-mass until later in the day. We visited the city centre Wednesday night and I was expecting the city to be quiet - what a mistake!! Right in the city centre some of the streets were closed for all sorts of bands to beat their drum. Very colourful, lively and noisy.

Had a fantastic street restaurant dinner outside Binh Than markets with friends and had lots and lots of tasty food and a kilo of very tasty BBQ prawns with dinner costing less than $15 per head including drinks.

We escaped the throngs to the Caravelle roof top bar - not cheap by Vietnamese standards (probably good by Aussi Standards) and we had a bottle of whisky to share with friends and had very entertaining music.

Special TET offer – still on - buy coffee get a Trung Nguyen Aluminum phin. See previous news for complicated instruction or just ask for it in the comments section of the order (conditions apply)

Breaking news - New improved legendee the coffee of hero's is coming - new blend new price - pricing should be up by next week - see our teaser on Facebook. Vietcoffee Vietnamese Coffee and Tea on Van Collin's page

Free Phin and travel tip
Travel tip in Vietnam – Travel Vietnam at Tet and be amazed at the sights. If in Saigon be impressed by the Fireworks, the May Trees, the pink peach trees and the masses of cumquat trees and red and yellow chrysanthemums

Expect the city to be very busy in the week leading up to Tet as Vietnamese families prepare, cleaning and painting and buying new things for their homes.

Country travel may be a little slower with families trying to get home. Many of the shops including the markets close for a couple of days on the eve and Lunar New Years Day. But being Vietnam many are keen to do business to keep afloat.

This means that this is an ideal opportunity to explore the City centre without the pressing throngs.

Special TET offer – Only for a fortnight buy coffee add a Trung Nguyen Aluminum phin to the cart and at check out add the code ‘FreeTNphin’ and get a free Phin. Limited numbers, one phin per customer, expires in a fortnight.
If you have any problems with the code - just leave us a note in the customer notes section of the order or send us an email so we can fixt it up!
Another Travel tip in Vietnam
Travel tip in Vietnam – The South of Vietnam is hot or hot and wet, The North of Vietnam has 4 seasons that are the reverse of us in the southern hemisphere. Check out the weather via the internet as to what the weather is likely to be.

When we went to Hanoi (not well planned) in the Aussi Summer we had to buy second hand jackets from the local markets to keep warm. Leave light and buy some clothes while you are away – no need to rush out the first day.

Van buys me An Phuc shirts from Parkson shops near the Airport in HCM – they had a 50% off sale, they weren’t cheap but they are very good quality and about $25 - $30 each for short sleeve. The current poor economic conditions have provoked the special sale pricing.

Talking about special – we have added a Creative 1 through to 5 BX1 pack with shipping at special pricing for the first 10 boxes – the price will go up by 10% when these are gone.

Still not sorted out the new pricing of the 2 phin with shipping - they will go up by at least 10% to 15% get in now before I sort out the new pricing.

Van and Hugh's travel tips to Vietnam - Phin x 2 with shipping price increase
Travel tip in Vietnam - Have the address of the destination in Writing - this includes the Ward and District - get a good map of the part of Vietnam you are going to - Be prepared to get out of the taxi if the driver doesn't look like he knows what destination you want and find another that seems to know.

This comes from personal experience when I was travelling with Amy and Jake and not Van. I pronounced the street correctly and gave the correct district and gave the name of a major shopping center at the end of the street, The driver kept on saying the wrong street - so I got out and with Vans help got one that understood.

On another matter Van has been telling me off for a while about the price of the 2 phin with shipping - they will have to go up so get in now before I sort out the new pricing.

Aunty Chau on a roll!
Things Settling down now and no phone calls from Aunty Chau at 6 am

Interesting developments in Vietnam since our last visit. Generally the economic situation is still very tough, and the Vietnamese always on the look out for saving money and making money have started making their own condensed milk for Cafe Sua Da - We won't be able to import it as Milk product from Vietnam is banned in Australia but we still have the original and best milk for your iced coffee

Buy 3 or more packets of any coffee from the store and pay for shipping and for $7.50 upgrade your order with 3 Longevity milk

We still have very good pricing on the Longevity milk - so good that we have had wholesale inquiries.

Buy any 3 packs of coffee from the store, (you will have to pay for your shipping unless it's included in the the price) go to the Accessories and Brewing equipment section of the store and upgrade your order with a 3 pack of Longevity Milk for $7.50

There is no extra shipping charge for the upgrade - Just purchase the Longevity 3 pack and it will be shipped at no extra charge to you.


Happy Christmas

Merry Christmas to you all - We are still on line all Christmas –so order away and feel free to text us if you have any questions 040201091 6

The store will be being looked after by Aunty Chau after we leave for Vietnam on New Years Eve so some things may take a little longer

Have a great festive season, may your god be with you and you have a prosperous New Year

From Van and Hugh
