Spotted yesterday at Pho Tau Bay (113C Westbank Expressway, Gretna, LA; 504.368.9846): a postcard promoting a late-January trip to Vietnam hosted by Tuyet Takacs, the much-loved restaurant’s owner. Here’s the text from the postcard:
“Travel with Tuyet to her homeland of Vietnam and visit placed that will entice a novice and the well-seasoned traveler alike. The gently paced trip encompasses all of the must-see sights of Vietnam–historic and elegant Hanoi, a cruise on the spectacular Halong Bay, the ancient capital of Hue, the multicultural beach town of Hoi An, and the bustling Saigon. If you can spend more time and want to enhance your trip, consider continuing on for either a 3-night beach stay–one of Vietnam’s hidden gems, or a lazy Mekong River Cruise through Cambodia ending at Siem Reap, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that will simply leave you speechless. Tuyet will bring her own memories, and of course, help us to expand our world of Vietnamese cuisine. Space is limited to 16. Trip departs January 31, 2013. Prices begin at $3,230/pp (air & land).”
