Mai Dang

Hi there! My name is Mai (pronounce exactly like “my” in English). I am a 24 year-old Graphic Designer and Photographer who falls in love with Ho Chi Minh City (SaiGon). I was born and raised in a poor town in the Southwest of VietNam. I moved to Saigon after graduating from college. Then I found this “noisy” city so amazing. The city has its own quiet corners if you know how to find them. Now let’s have a glance at our itinerary. :”)

6 am – Morning Coffee at Vot Coffee, Phu Nhuan Dist

If you have a plan of travelling to Viet Nam, I am sure you have heard about Vietnamese coffee – Cà phê sữa đá, made by using medium to coarse ground dark roast coffee with a small metal Vietnamese drip filter, then added with milk and ice (Google will explain much better than me haha). 

However, back in time, you will discover another traditional method: hand net. 

“Many decades ago, the Vietnamese used a hand net to brew coffee. The net was filled with ground coffee and held above a coffee pot. A small amount of hot water was then poured through the net, a process that was repeated up to three times. The more water added, the darker the coffee flavor. To keep the beverage hot, the pot was placed on top of a stove.” (Explore Coffee Traditions Around the World, Starbuck News).

Vot Coffee is one of the oldest coffee shops in Saigon and has never changed its method. It is located in a small corner away from the city center. Imagine how cool you are when drinking ca phe sua da on the road side and watching local people starting their days. No crowded places of tourists. Just feel like your are a real Saigonese and enjoy your every morning. 

Ba Chieu Market - An everything market, Binh Thanh Dist

Ba Chieu is a large local market, built in 1942 and renovated in 1987. You can buy fresh fish, shrimp, pork, cloths, bedding or even flip flops. There are a lot of food stalls that serve noodle, Vietnamese pancake (banh xeo), pho,… You can enjoy damn real taste of country food that is different from restaurants for tourists. 

Drive through somewhere you want by my super motorbike

It will take us about 2 hours and a half to have breakfast and get around the market. And before I drop you off where you want, I will let you have a city tour on motorbike (optional). It sounds scary because there are too many many vehicles on the roads. However, if you want to enjoy some “adventure”, I am sure you will have unforgotable feelings called “Saigonese taste”. This is my promise.
