For meals it is from 2-5 - 10 USD for Lunch or Dinner , it depends on restaurant you choose. You can take taxi or grab to tourist places, or walk around in city central and pay entrance fee from 1 - 2 USD...

Impossible to answer.

Just food and travelling in Saigon?

Anywhere from $10 to $100 a day depending on where you eat and how you travel.

To be honest, this is pretty hard to estimate because the cost can vary a lot based on what attractions that you are into and what type of restaurants that you prefer.

Here are some of my estimations so that you could roughly estimate for yourself:

Street vendors: US $1-2

Casual dining: US $3-6

Fine dining: prices are varied

Tickets at tourist attractions: around US $2 or so.

Have fun, let me know if I can help :)
