About Huong

About me

My name is Huong, but you can call me Jin. I’m just a normal Vietnamese girl who have a deep love with this city- Ho Chi Minh city.
I’m 20 now and I have been a local tour guide for 8 months, but I spend most of the time of my life to discover this city and it’s never been enough.
Listening to music or reading a book is my favorite hobby. Besides that, I usually let myself get lost in somewhere and enjoy exploring new places. Sai Gon is a hidden gem of Viet Nam, anything “professional “ will make it less precious.
Life is too short to stay at one place, so just pack your stuffs, think less, feel more and take a ride with me.

My experiences and qualifications

I’m studying in an international school and also have another 2 part time jobs. Being an assistant for a foreigner in the morning and a waitress at night. There is no doubt about my communication.
I have experience for 8 months, so I know where should I take my customers to, to find out the true spirit of Sai Gon.
