Our plan was to pick them up at the hotel. Unfortunately I got lost when I was trying to find the parking lot. As a result Hoang came to the hotel first. Then, I met all of them at Ben Thanh market and we started to move to Nguyen Hue walking street. Our city tour could finally begin.
During the tour
Being so excited about handmade envelopes, they asked us to help them buy. Sadly I was not used to bargaining but the seller just discounted 10 000đ for 5 pieces.
I noticed that they extremely love souvenirs and traditional handicrafts. They bought 3 postcards which has the scenery of Vietnam such as Ben Thanh market, Saigon post office and sent them to their parents in Australia in Saigon Central Post Office.
Like another guests, they got really scared when we crossed the street but it was ok because Hoang and I could help them😎😎
We talked much about the environment which was significantly polluted and how we could improve it. They shared that they would like to have a better environment for their children in the future.
Them we moved on to the War Remnant Museum. Matt wanted to visit first floor so we splitted up. Jacqueline and I came to the second floor first. She knew the Napalm baby picture and seem surprised after seeing all the pictures taken in the same period with it.
The War Remnant Museum was our last destination. In the end they gave us 2 beautiful envelopes they bought.
That was the end of our city tour
The city tour was great and the guests were lovely. We learned much about them too.
