I'm planning a trip which may involve a long (11 hr) layover in CMN. I understand that there is no left luggage service at the airport. My first thought was to find a guide to take a private tour which would allow me to leave my bag in their vehicle. However, I've discovered that option is more expensive than I thought and that people generally recommend venturing off on one's own, anyway.
The only problem with taking a train into town and doing everything on our own is that I really do not want to spend a day walking around a city tethered to a bulky backpack containing all my electronics, etc. My only other thought is to get a hotel room- but I am skeptical that we could actually get into a room in the morning when our flight arrives. And I'm not sure if we would end up really using it. So it would seem like it might not be the best use of my money. But I'm not sure if there are any other options that I am missing.
Any help would be appreciated!
