Thao and her Mum are really wonderful people. My girlfriend and I stayed for 12 nights while we got set up permanently in HCMC and couldn't have picked a nicer place to start. Thao is really friendly, and her Mum is absolutely adorable. She doesn't speak English, so will walk around speaking Vietnamese but is always doing nice things - cutting up and sharing watermelon, helping with washing, taking garbage off our hands if she sees us with it. She has a translator app which she uses if there's anything that needs said - and she asked to use their place like we would our home t make use of nearby markets and restaurants but hear good things, while there are plenty of corner shops nearby.
