What you'll do

Let's get out of the busy centre of Saigon and slow life down a little. We will meet at 14:45 (15 mins in advance) at the meeting point in D1. We will catch a 15 minute public boat to another side of Saigon. By doing this, we can observe bustling SG from a very different perspective. We'll enjoy the boat trip in the sunshine and in the evening. During the journey you will see how modern and traditional SG has become interwoven. We will walk around the "Loop" to see how some of "the other half" live. This will give you the chance to get out of the "tourists box". We will have a break at some cool bars and street food eateries. Most of the places are outdoors and some are even located on the river banks. Here you can get a variety of cool, unique craft beer and delicious nibbles. After exploring the interesting area, I will send you back to D1 by boat to give the perfect ending to your experience.

Xuyen

I’m Saigoneese, who is down to earth with a good sense of humour. I love to travel, explore places and try different kinds of food and drinks. I never thought about making this into a business until various international friends of mine, who I have met while travelling over the years, came to Vietnam and said how much they enjoyed my guidance and suggestions. So I decided to give it a try. My slogan is: "Eating and drinking might make you fat, but I’d rather get fat on good food and drink than be skinny on dull tasteless food". Therefore, all of the places I take you to will serve delicious food and spot-on drinks with phenomenal service. I’m looking forward to seeing you on board! Cheers!

Where you'll be

Saigon We will start our afternoon at a coffee shop a long the river for some fresh tropical juice and traditional Vietnamese coffee. Then we will head to a craft beer pub located on a vibrant street. Here the beers are brewed in VN. This area is my local stomping ground. I enjoy it here very much so, as life can get too hectic in downtown SG. After that we shall enjoy some vietnamese food at local eateries.
