Most of the trip is about trying Vietnamese cuisine and enjoying HCMC. My friends and I can show you some particular places or local hot spot not in travel books, such as:
_ Bến Thành market (Cho Ben Thanh Market)
_ War Remnants Museum
_ Notre Dame Cathedral
_ Reunification Palace
_ Bitexco Financial Tower Skydeck
_ Saigon Central Post Office
_ Saigon Opera House
and many many more!!!
For your information, please check this:
If you want to try some new Vietnamese dishes, join the trip and I am sure you won't regret it. The greatest things of this trip is that street foods are very cheap and delicious, the maximum cost takes about 400.000 Vietnam dong (approximately $20) for one traveler. We will travel by taxi, bus or on foot, It's up to you.
You should try now. If not you then who? If not now then when? :D

She is good English speaker. She is very good at the driving of the motorcycle. She guides every place you want to visit of the town by motorcycle. It’s very fun. She can take you to a nice restaurant and souvenir shops precisely. You can spend valuable time in Ho Chi Minh City with her. I want to visit Ho Chi Minh City once again with her guide. Thank you, Thien.
Thien is good company, someone whom you can trust and rely on. She'll go an extra mile to help you if you are searching for some particular souvenir. Not one to cheat or short change you. Patient, easy going, fun and professional. Highly recommend her.
We had a wonderful experience. Thien introduced a few samples of the local seafood to us. They tasted great and we enjoyed her and her friends company. She is easy to talk to, speaks impeccable English and without her this undertaking would have been impossible. I highly recommend Thien because of her knowledge and her fun nature. We enjoyed our evening very much.
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!

We have booked the city tour combined with foodie tour with Thien An. My colleagues and I (group of 3 instead of the original 4 pax), truly enjoyed the tour. We visited famous sites and landmarks in Ho Chi Minh City coupled with food tasting along the street for snacks, short break for an ice cold fruit juice smoothies at a cozy cafe, lunch at such a nice and fancy restaurant and afternoon tea/snacks at the Benh Thanh Market.
Our guide, Thien An, arrived early at the hotel for the meet up. She arranged a car for us which made the movement from one place to another so convenient. Thien An was very pleasant and cordial all the time. She gave us the flexibility to decide on where to go, how long to stay in one place and when to leave for our next destination. We can never complain with the service she has provided us. We will definitely refer her to our friends.
Thank you for the superb service, An! We hope to meet you again someday. We had a wonderful trip and great souvenir photos, too.

Thien is good guide.I wasn't decide to where I go,but she guide some good places!
She tell me how to eat pho, go to night market,drink smoothie(taste good!!),beatiful view spot.
And take me by scooter,that was so good experience!
And her English is well.(my English is not good but she try to understand:))
If I come to HCMC again, I ask her to guide again!
Thank you so much An!
I had good time in HCMC.
Thien was a fantastic person to hangout with. She's smart, fun and helpful. We visited a cat cafe, The Other Person cafe and of course the amazing 4P's Pizza restaurant. All these venues recommended by her were great, but more than half the fun wouldn't have happened without her company.
At the end of the outing, she even surprised me by stopping by a bridge to admire the spectacular view of Saigon's skyline.
I imagine we'd have more interesting conversations if I stayed in Saigon even longer. All in all, I'd say this is an unforgettable experience for me and I highly recommend everyone to get to know Thien!
Really sorry for the super late review and feedback.
was pretty busy once i get back from vietnam.
We traveled in three. Me myself, my younger bro and my bf.
we arranged to meet up with An (Thien) on the last night in vietnam.
we make it a spontaneous outing. Which i think An might had a little "no idea" where to bring us around when i told her we want to know what's Saigon's youngster normally do at evening.
she bring along another 2 friends with bike, so each of us are able to ride on the back around the city.
An, Chloe and Hoa are really really nice and knowledgeable about their hometown. Ask anything you are curious about it, they will try to answer you. haha!
there's too much to write for the few hours we spend together.
Getting on back of the bike is REAL FUN!!
it's very exciting indeed!
recommended to get this lovely girl to enhance your day or night in Saigon!
Thanks Thien for taking us shopping and discover the funny place in HCMC. We really enjoy the trip with Thien. Of course we will not forget the coffee and Traditional food in HCMC, it is really good. Hope to see you again in HCMC
I met her on her university campus. She speaks English fluently.
We went to Emperor Jade Pagoda and Binh Tay Market together with her. During our trip, I had juice and sweets whose shops are very popular among locals. No tourist there.
If you want to try genuine local-popular foods, ask Thien.
We took a local bus. You know, it's a kind of difficult to take a local bus for a tourist like me. Noisy and aggressive bus driving was also interesting experience for me.
With her help, I bet your trip will become super fantastic!
Thien is a good girl. She bring us to local restaurant that good taste and refresh us. She helps us to find everything we want. Nice to meetrip with her. Book now!
I only had 3 hours to visit in HCMC and An made it the best 3 hours of my trip! She is very fun to be with and accommodating.
We went to the guitar street, ben thanh market, local pho place, cafe and a convenience store! Riding on her bike is the most exciting way to explore the city!
I found a new friend in her. Thank you ^~^ Ahhh I'm really happy like this ->
Had a wonderful time with Thien: her English is impeccable, she knows the city inside out and makes you really feel at home in Saigon. Discovering the local places was so nice, and I had a blast zipping through the crazy traffic on her scooter. Thanks again Thien!
Thien is awesome!!
She took me around Ho Chi Minh City by motorbike for all day. We went to Cho Ben Thanh Market, popular local restaurant, small temple not in guide book(this place was nice), Vietnamese high school, China Town, Vietnamese movie(that was so funny(^_^)), the park where we can drink Vietnamese coffee, Bitexco Financial Tower. We explored HCMC together for all of day. We had continued to laugh. It was what a nice time.
Furthermore, she has a lot of knowledge about traditional things and lifestyle of HCMC. She told me that. I think understanding about the country makes trip delightful. So if you want to have a great time during your trip in Ho Chi Minh City, it is better for you to contact Thien. I hope you have a wonderful time with Thien. (^_^)b
I had very precious time with An! I really recommend her as a guide. She took me around HCMC by motor bike such as China town, Behntag market and place to eat and drink, anything I want to do and wherever I want to go. And told me a lot with her charming smile. I totally had fun.
I met Thien on second day of my trip.
she is very kind and sincere guide.
she took me post office, local market, war museum, etc with her bike. She explained vietnam history, culture very well. Her English is good and I could understand well. It was amazing experience that took bike and run on the road with many vietnamese. And she took me some local restaurant. All was so cool. Especially I can't forget sitting on road and drinking coffee or juice. Thank you Thien. You are greatest guide I ever met.
She speaks English very well and is so clever. She guides me local market and street food with her bike. Nice experience to know what the real Saigon is. Thank you :)
She is a good tour guide.
Vietnamese coffee, Pho, Sugarcane juice, Shopping ...
Thanks to her, I had a wonderful time.
I want to go to HCMC again!
