Xin chào! Nana is here ^^.
 
Many friends joined my local sightseeing walking tour and loved it a lot, they also wondered about what's Saigon nightlife?
So i decided  to create a new walking tour to let you enjoy what a happy and beautiful Saigon at night.
 
I gonna pick you up from the main gate of Fine arts museum - 97A, Pho Duc Chinh street, District 1 (https://maps.app.goo.gl/oZgsTkSJ6Wvz2Ts5A).
Then we gonna walk around, enjoy street foods to make your tummy happy, then we take a local ferry (ticket cost: 15,000VND/way) to see city at night and enjoy some drinks in a local rooftop bar. (If we wilp be lucky to buy ticket).
At the end of the tour, I will help you take a cab to get back to your hotel.
 
Where would we visit? 

1. Fine arts museum (outside).
2. Visit an ancient architectural bridge in Saigon.
3. Enjoy a street food for dinner (we will decide what to try after meeting to the group)
4. Visit Thu Ngu flagpole (signaling flagpole).
5. Taking relax and enjoy beautiful city view in the local ferry or from a new bridge (optional).
6. Having some drinks in a local rooftop bar. 


 *Other things to note:
- Pick up at Fine arts museum - 97A, Pho Duc Chinh street, District 1. (https://maps.app.goo.gl/oZgsTkSJ6Wvz2Ts5A). 

- This is a joined group tour so we will leave ON TIME.
- Joining my walking tour with a happy soul and hungry stomach. Please inform me about your allergies before starting the walking tour, then I could recommend you another food to try.
- During the tour, we could enjoy some street foods, snacks, drinks and buy a ticket of local ferry. Let enjoy it and pay it by yourself :).

Click on the link to check the dates and time slots.
If Saigon is known for one thing, it's the fantastic food—and maybe its swarms of buzzing motorbikes if you are afraid of being behind scooters in this bustling city—this evening food walking tour with me when most of the street vendors open for business. You will taste cuisine from North, Central, and South Vietnam.

Get picked up at the meeting point, Huyen Sy Church, and then we leave the tourist area behind and walk to the local area. Start your food adventure in the non-tourist district.
I designed the tour with many dishes with small bites. You can order as much as you want, and if you feel full, you can skip some food stops on the tour. However, you can watch how vendors make the dishes and take a picture. Most of food stops, we will share meals to eat together.

Here is the highlight of what you will do with me:
Thirteen tastings of authentic, delicious street food in the local area.
 
#1. Bo La Lot ( cost 1,5$ USD)

#2. Banh Xeo  ( cost 1$ USD)

#3. Banh Khot  (  cost 0,5$ USD)

#4. Grab a fresh beer and walk like
a gangster  ( cost 0,5$ USD)

#5. Banh Trang Nuong ( cost 1$ USD)

#6. Sugar Cane Juice  ( cost 0,5$ USD)

#7. Food challenge and seafood:  Scallops,
Clams, Snails, and Baluts. ( if you like to try 2$)

#8. Sticky rice ( cost 1$ USD) and Banh Mi ( cost 1$ )   

#9. Coconut Ice Cream ( cost 0,5$ USD)

#10. Rice wine  ( cost 0,5$ USD)

And other sightseeing places:
1. Old apartments
2. Street food market
3. Flower market.

Meaningful Discussions is the largest face-to-face discussion group with events taking place in 11 countries:

http://www.meaningfuldiscussions.org

Our ongoing mission is to explore the art and science of meaningful discussions and to initiate these discussions in cities around the world. Our team has collectively coordinated over 1,000 events since 2012 and we have combined this experience into this project.

Discussion Topics:

We believe that discussion topics need to be intriguing, practical and relevant in order to be able to compete with the ever-growing list of television shows and other less engaging activities which lead to social isolation.

Intentions For Our Discussions:

Meaningful discussions are not debates or lectures. Each discussion is an opportunity for participants to collectively explore a topic with the following intentions:

To have an enjoyable and engaging experience with open-minded individuals while also improving our conversations skills.

To learn something new from each other by sharing our insights and unique perspectives based on our life experiences.

To learn something new about ourselves by re-examining our values and beliefs based on hearing new perspectives which we may or may not agree with.

To build a community of returning members and to create a conducive environment for new friendships.

How are we different from other discussion groups?

Structure. Most other discussion groups have a free-form structure where everyone is seated at a long table or in one large group. Our events have multiple groups of 5-7 people with one facilitator at each table and discussion questions provided.

Preparation Time. Most other discussion groups will provide a very brief outline of the topic. In contrast, we spend a lot of time creating topic packages which include Food For Thought videos and discussion notes.

Intention. Most discussion groups put more emphasis on the topic being discussed but not on actually creating a meaningful experience. In contrast, creating meaningful experiences is our primary focus and our mission.

What qualifications do you need to join this group?

All you need to join our group is an open-mind,humility in knowing that we all have lots to learn from other perspectives and a desire to improve your conversation skills while having fun at the same time.
