  • Description


    Hi there Workaway people.
    My name is Duy

    Our property is located in Hochiminh city.

    Having spent the last 20 years doing business in Vietnam whole sale market.
    I need a bit of help in my small vegetable business.
    Help would be approx. 3 hours per day, with flexible hours so you can take time to enjoy Hochiminh city life.
    The typical help would be: pick up small amount of vegetable, and fruit in the whole sale market.
    Go around the city with my staff and take photo of restaurant.
    Help us deliver vegetable to hotel.
    There is a room in my company with single bed, and internet access . There is a 'lunch room' so you could make your own meal. I will provide lunch, and sometimes dinner. Breakfast, and dinner is taken independently in the lunch room.
    My company have 2 maids so they will help you in the laundry and show you around.
    If arriving by plane, I will more than likely be able to collect you from the airport please turn on your cell phone when arrive to the airport.

    Super market, and convenient store around my company.
    There are several other Workaway hosts locally, so you have many chances to meet like minded travelers and there are many places of interest in the city.
    I would be happy to assist with information to further your travels in around Hochiminh.

    Please see the photos which give an idea of the property.
