Hi guys, this is Po here, founder of the experience which you currently are looking at. Experience is something that hard to describe by words, which can only tell by feelings only. I love food, love to travel, love to see new more thing on Earth so I traveled a lot, ate a lot, saw a lot, and mostly experienced the true beauty of Earth; so I could deeply understand what you really need to experience in one new place. Therefore, in order to have enough human supporting resources to show you all the place by having a few more co-hosts, Helen is my sister. Vietnam, and especially Saigon is my love and my life. She brings not only joy, also many magnificent feelings throughout my days here. Join me not to see, but to feel and enjoy my experience with Saigon and then you will love the place as how I always love.
