Review: Saigon Street Eats Part 2. Morning Pho Tour!

Saigon Street Eats Tour

How’d you like that meat pic?  I promised you a separate review of the morning Pho Tour with Saigon Street Eats after telling you about the night tour the other day.  So here’s the daytime fun as promised!

Our morning tour started off by being picked up again by Barb and family.  Did I mention how freaking awesome this is when you’re in an unfamiliar city where English is not the first language????

Pho was on the breakfast menu and it was completely divine.  Pho in southern Vietnam is so much better than in the north (sorry Hanoi!)  In the south you get huge plates of greenery to add to your bowl plus lime juice, sprouts and various other goodies.  The further north you go the Continue reading

Review: Saigon Street Eats. Best Tour We’ve Ever Been On!

Saigon Street Eats - hands off!

We head off to Thailand tomorrow and it’s occurred to me that we never posted anything about our Vietnam trip except on Facebook.  So I’m going to spend some time scheduling the good stuff for you in the next couple of days.  And I’m starting with the. best. tour. we’ve. ever. been. on!

Saigon Street Eats has been on my radar since I saw the owners Barbara & Vu announce that were going to start a business taking tourists around to eat.  I have to admit that a year later when we finally had the chance to go I assumed Barb’s little food tour would be begging for my attention.

Then I looked on Trip Advisor and saw they they were really high on the list of things to do in Ho Chi Minh!  They had amazing Continue reading

Favourite Fotos: Oh It’s Just A Bit Of Rubbish!

Just a bit of rubbish?  Or a sign of a bigger problem?

I might have mentioned before that I just can’t get over the amount of rubbish left everywhere in South East Asia!  It’s not a judgement or a ‘why don’t they clean up after themselves’ type of thing.  I’m just constantly surprised when we come across a pile of rubbish.  I see it as a scourge on the earth, not just a bit of rubbish!

I’ve been vigilant not to become part of this cycle and if there are no bins available I’m always dragging home rubbish whenever we are out and about exploring.  I’ve had locals crack up laughing because I’m stashing the Continue reading

Favourite Fotos: Can You Take A Selfie With Someone Else?

Can you take a selfie with someone else and not make funny faces?

Do you take selfies?  Can you take a selfie with someone else and not worry about what anyone around you is thinking?  This guy can!  I think just about everyone has taken a selfie at some point.  And often with others in the pic!  Do you ever consider who is watching you take the selfie though?  Most people are caught up in the moment and don’t worry too much who else is around.

While I was happily snapping away to get loads of pictures of the boys on their recent dodgem showdown at Vinpearl Land in Vietnam I suddenly focused on what the guy in front was Continue reading
