Bonsai Cruise Launches

Bonsai Cruise is a boutique style dinner and event cruising in Saigon. From the moment you board this grand beauty of the river you will be swept away and amazed by the hand-carved details of the boat, the innovative buffet setting, the native music instruments played and the service of the crew. Their open kitchen and interactive dining stations enhance guests’ experience. The creative mind behind the menu is Steven Long, runner up of Top Chef Vietnam in 2014. Through the night entertainment is performed by a six member Vietnamese and Filipino band. Visit for more info.


I’m a Legend

American children’s book author, Curtis Norris, has introduced two new services for Saigon’s young readers. “I’m a Legend” books are personalized stories for children. “A child is more than a name,” says the author. “I do not simply cut and paste a child’s name into a pre-written story. I craft a unique story from scratch for each child based on their personality dreams, and likes. No two children get the same story.” The service provides many options for parents, including original illustrations and quality hardcover copies.

Saigon Saturday Stories Club is a subscription-based story service for all the children. A 12-week subscription costs VND1.2 million. A new story is sent to the parent’s email every Saturday, ready to enjoy over the weekend and read again and again. Parents receive the stories no matter where they happen to be in the world. The club has already launched on April 22, but parents can join anytime to start receiving all 12 stories. For more info on both, email
