Saigoneer Podcast: The Asian Olympics, Saigon's Museums and Travelfish Co-Founder Stuart McDonald

We hope everyone had a great holiday weekend - we're back with the latest Saigoneer Podcast episode!

On this week's show, we begin (1:20) with a conversation about the just-concluded Asian Olympics and what they mean for Vietnam, especially in terms of football and the incredible reaction to the success of the men's team.

Then (14:07), we cover Saigon's collection of museums and how they still leave much to be desired. Why aren't there better museums in the city, and which locations would we recommend?

Our interview guest (22:55) is Stuart McDonald, a co-founder of the independent travel website Travelfish. We call Stuart at his home in Indonesia to talk about travel in Southeast Asia. 

As always, we end with Banh Mi Banter (41:43).
