We’ve long been fans of online travel guide Travelfish, which specializes in Southeast Asian destinations. In fact, Travelfish is our own first go-to resource whenever we’re doing any exploring in the region. We’ve used it in Bali, Singapore, Cambodia, Malaysia, the Thai islands, and of course here at home in Vietnam (if we ever get to Laos, we’ll use it there, too). So we practically wet ourselves with excitement last week when Travelfish Vietnam editor Angela Schonberg contacted us about joining one of our Saigon After Dark tours for a possible write-up. She and her boyfriend joined us on a mercifully rain-free evening on which three other guests also joined, local expats Rachel and Rupert with their Singapore amigo Dmitry, visiting for a weekend. We had a blast (naturally) and this morning we were treated to an excellent surprise: this blog post at Travelfish’s Saigon blog:
Vietnam Vespa Adventures takes guests off the beaten path and shows them, I think, a more authentic side of the city with their Saigon After Dark tour. And with Vespa Adventures you get to see Saigon in style, from the back of restored, late 1960s-early 1970s Vespas.”
You can see the full post yourself here, but we were awfully fond of the wrap-up, which reads exactly like what we’d say about the tour if we were a little more articulate:
I loved the tour; it took me to places so far off the beaten path that I hadn’t even heard of them. So, if you’re coming to town, or you’ve been here awhile, and you want a fun night out where you can experience “the real Saigon”, give it a try!”
Thanks Angela, Max, and all of the awesome folks at Travelfish!
