Restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City

Restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City

After our New Year’s in Saigon started with a bang, we got a good night’s sleep and woke up to the happy news that our friends had arrived and were waiting downstairs for us! We had met Kris and Martin and their adorable toddler son while in Chiang Mai, Thailand for Thanksgiving. What a pleasure to run into them again! We first went to a local play place for the kids, and as our hunger grew our friends...

New Years Eve in Saigon

New Years Eve in Saigon

Spending two weeks in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, over the Christmas and New Year’s holiday was certainly a fun experience. The days building up to Christmas were quite festive, and we were curious how this would translate into New Year’s celebrations. We weren’t disappointed! A few days before New Year’s we took a walk down the backpacker district to get some good Italian food (a welcome escape from...

Coming from our retail and sales background, we are not sold on the consumerism behind the mass-marketed Christmas...

Kids Activities in Ho Chi Minh City

Saigon is a concrete jungle. Lots of motorbikes, traffic, and buildings. It is also very, very hot. In order to break up our 2 week stay in the city, we found ourselves doing a wonderful Saigon Street Food Tour with the kids, going to a lot of restaurants, and hanging out in our air conditioned hotel room more than I’d like to admit. Besides the awesome street food tour mentioned above, here are some...

Kiz City in Saigon, Vietnam

Kiz City in Saigon, Vietnam

We spent two weeks in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon), Vietnam for Christmas and New Year’s. It is a very busy city, and with the heat we weren’t sure what to do to keep our kids entertained. When we learned about KizCity, we decided it was worth a try! Basically, this kid’s event place is a mini kid’s city modeled after “the real world.” Here children can participate in and learn...
