Address: Le Meridien Hotel, 3C Ton Duc Thang Street, District 1
Guide: Dong Minh and Trong Danh.
The guest that day was a family from US including 6 people. We picked up their family at the Le Meridien Hotel and started going to Chinatown. Although born in the United States but the origins of the family are from China, they want to see how the Chinese Vietnamese living in Vietnam. So we went to Thien Hau lady Temple and wandered around the nearby temples. They seem quite interested in Chinese food here. Although they are originally Chinese, but they didn’t know much about Chinese culture and they were quite surprised by the Chinese Vietnamese customs here.
Next, we stopped at a dimsum restaurant and enjoyed the dishes. They looked so happy to see the people in the restaurant speak Chinese even though we did not understand anything. They just arrived in Vietnam for the first time so they wanted us to take them to some interesting destinations in the center of the city. To my surprise, Tricia and her husband are working for GAP in San Francisco, California now. It’s a big MNC that i really desire to work for in the future. I was surprised and then they led us to a GAP store and bought us a gift. We said goodbye here and did not forget to keep in touch.
