My friend and I just spent two nights in Ho Chi Minh and were very fortunate to meet Thien (An) on the first night. She arrived on time and bought a friend so they could take both of us on the back of their scooters. They were very competent and safe riders and the ride through the busy streets was so much fun!
Thien took us to some amazing places to try out authentic Vietnamese food. She's so passionate about the food and was always happy to answer our questions. She was interested to find out what we wanted to eat, but also had some fantastic suggestions for food we might like to try. Everything we ate that night was absolutely delicious! In particular I absolutely loved the Pho, Vietnamese pancakes (Banh Xeo I think?) and finishing with a Vietnamese coffee at a lovely, laid back cafe.
Aside from the amazing food, I couldn't speak more highly of Thien. She was such a lovely, friendly and welcoming person and made such an effort to make our time in Saigon one to remember. Her English was perfect and we never ran out of things to talk about. I will definitely be returning to Vietnam and the first thing I'll do is get in contact with Thien as it just wouldn't be as much fun without her. If you're going to Ho Chi Minh I thoroughly recommend you book one of her tours. It was absolutely the highlight of my holiday!
