    Hello

    Arriving into HCMC on Thu 20 March and will be there for 2 1/2 days before bussing over to Phnom Penh . Doing some work in Singapore and have a day and a half work in Phnom Penh so thought I'd try and take as much in during my small amount of time.

    Can anyone suggest a private tour guide I can hire for two days to show me around main tourist sites but also some of the commercial areas?

    Any "normal" backpackers who want to join me for some sightseeing let me know... gets boring with your own guide.

    James

    Contact Saigon Hotpot:

    http://saigonhotpot.vn/

    Their guides are students who volunteer their services so they can meet English-speaking visitors.
    The service is completely free. You just pay expenses - taxis, entrance fees and lunch. A fantastic 1-1 service.

    The guides will not accept tips. If you want to show your appreciation (as everyone does!) just give them a donation for the charities they support.

    You will not be disappointed!
