Thank you so much for organizing a terrific day of bonsai in Saigon! I might have made it to one of the three bonsai growers on my own that we visited, but never to all of them. And without an English-speaking guide and local driver, I wouldn’t have experienced nearly so much.
Having a friendly guide, fluent in English, helped me learn so much about Vietnam. This made it much easier to interact with the bonsai artists and understand all their growing techniques. It was also nice to be able to enjoy authentic local cuisine along the way and have all my questions answered.
I was impressed with the quality of the bonsai being developed and the level of interest in the art form in Vietnam. I came away with many wonderful pictures and fond memories of the day.
