I came to the Hotel before 30 minutes to wait for her and the hotel where she rented is in the dynamic alley. When she came to downstairs we talked together and started the Tour at 8.30 Am.
During the tour
Firstly, I told her that we had to go by taxi to get there and she agreed. While we were waiting, we shared many things about education in Vietnam and China and the reason why she was a Chinese but lived in the USA. When the taxi arrived 10 minutes later we continued the tour with a happy feeling.
This was my second CHINA TOWN TOUR, I prepared more carefully about legend stories, the architecture of 2 Temples in order to the guest know more clearly. She came from China but she wanted to come to Pagoda and Temple in Vietnam so that she could find the old things from that old architecture. This was the reason why she chose China Town Tour. She very satisfied with legend stories I told her. She said that this day she had studied many new things about Buddhism and knew more stories about these Temple. I also told her the meaning of odd incenses and circle incenses.
When we came to Ong Temple, she said that many memories came back to her brain because her grandmother had taken her to this place. She was very happy with this tour which brought many old memories for her. During this China Town Tour, we shared many things such as culture, education, legend stories…
Beside City Tour, I also enjoy this kind of tour, China Town Tour. This is a new change for me to learn more about Chinese culture by special ways.
