City tour 15/7
Guides: Nguyen Huu Quang Tien
Guests: Lucia Asaro form Agrentina
I came to the hotel to pick her up at 8:45 am. But when I arrived, she had already went downstair to wait for me.
When talked to her, I knew that she had just flighted to Ho Chi Minh City at midnight yesterday. Only has just slept about 7 hours until now. She only stays here till 3pm then she must flights to an island in Malaysia. She said she will turn back Ho Chi Minh City and stayed in 2 days. Therefore, I decided to take her to go City Tour. And led her to eat something instead of city tour and China Town as my first my plan. We went to Ben Thanh Market first, I also introduced of its history.
I talked about people around here and some traditional foods in Viet Nam that she must taste. After taking her around the market, we kept going to Nguyen Hue Street in district 1. So I continuelly talked about “ Ho Chi Minh – revolutionary, founder of the Communist Party of Vietnam, and also is the leader of country”.
Not only I talked about Ho Chi Minh but also I introduced her People’s Committee HCM City, church, post office and last but not least is Independence Palace. In the afternoon, we ate porridge for lunch in district 5. After that I drove her to buy a water heater because she said around district 1 there was no place to buy this one.
This was the first time i had taken a city tour alone. Everything was as good as I expected. When she come back, i will take her to china town if i have a free day !
