Event description

Description

Being that the city is the commercial centre of the country, locals flock to Saigon in hopes of better career opportunities. Because of this, the city has more food options available than any other hub in Vietnam, with culinary influences from around the country. It is a haven for any self-proclaimed foodie who has the chance to visit this unique city. Many locals would argue that the best food is found on the city’s winding streets, and quite frankly, we agree. The food is both incredibly tasty and affordable, allowing visitors to eat to their heart’s desire without spending one too many dong. Good food is in abundance, but great food is a bit harder to find. That is where your local guide comes in. Hidden inside an old loft, at the end of an inconspicuous alley, tucked between two vibrant vendors at a pulsing food market: visitors never know where their next delicious meal is going to come from, but your local guide will. Follow along as your local guide takes you to explore the city through your stomach, showing you the best hidden gems along the way and bringing Vietnamese cuisine and eating culture to life.
