Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon as many of the locals call it, is the largest city in Vietnam. The fall of Saigon in 1975 marked the end of the Vietnam war and a victory for the communist north. The country was mostly economically and politically isolated until the government introduced reforms in 1986. Today, Saigon welcomes over 8 million visitors per year and has become a city full of opportunities with great restaurants and food scene second to none, which is helping to define its nickname as the Pearl of the Far East.
After falling in love with the sights, smells and of course flavours of Southeast Asia in his many travels through the region, David Rocco has decided to see what this tropical wonderland has in store for him. Travelling to Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, David learns traditional dishes and samples the street food he’s heard about from foodies all over the world.Seeing first-hand the unique cultures thriving in rural villages and the bustling cosmopolitan cities, David is inspired to share with the world the stories of the people he meets along the way.
