Saigoneer Podcast: Domestic Tourism's Rise & the Son Tung-Snoop Dogg Music Video

The latest Saigoneer Podcast episode is available now!

On this week's show, we begin ̣(1:02) by discussing the explosive growth of domestic tourism in Vietnam, an industry aided by rapid economic growth and a blossoming middle class. Can tourism service providers cater to both the domestic market and the international tourism market, given the very different interests of these groups?

Then (20:16), we dive into the derivative but possibly important new Son Tung music video, which features an appearance by the one and only Snoop Dogg. The video broke all kinds of records on YouTube, but does it signify bigger things to come for Vietnam's music industry?

As always, we close with Bánh Mì Banter (32:26).
