Gourmet Christmas Cruising in Saigon

Well, I can’t believe how fast this year has flown. It seems like only yesterday that we touched down in Ho Chi Minh City, but it’s actually been almost eight months. A lot has happened in that time. Most of it has been great, and we love our life here. But as Christmas rolls around, our thoughts turn to our family and friends back home and around the world. We will probably spend most of the day on Skype catching up and wishing we could be with them. BUT, we do want to do something special in the evening to celebrate another year together.

Gourmet Christmas Cruise Saigon

Here’s where we’ll be..:)

I’ve been hunting down river cruises as part of my Tours, Best Eats and Transport pages and caught up with Ines from Artisan Cruises last week. It’s a fairly new business but is one of those things I know is going to be popular with Expats and Tourists alike. The cruise is held on a beautifully restored, traditional boat and takes diners to some of the most beautiful parts of Ho Chi Minh City by night. Ines, the Austrian owner, is passionate about serving up healthy, top quality, gourmet food and personally supervises the whole operation..

The “Christmas Cruise” looks absolutely perfect for a night of festive fun. Two hours of fabulous food, great atmosphere and the beauty of Saigon by night. Considering what’s on offer, its splendid value at 1,240,000 VND (less than $60 USD) per person. And, it’s a chance to reward ourselves for working very hard and achieving many of our goals over the past 12 months.

So, if you’re in Ho Chi Minh City on Christmas Eve, why not come along and share in the celebrations. If you do decide to book a ticket (See details below), please let Ines know where you heard about the cruise and YOU WILL RECEIVE A FREE GIFT.

And, be sure to come and find us on the night and say hello.
