’90s icon Rachael Leigh Cook stars in a new rom-com entitled A guide to love and it now only streams on Netflix. The film tells a heartwarming love story between a hard working tour guide and an adventurous Vietnamese tour guide. But do these two very different characters end up together at the end of the film?
Based on an original idea by Cook, A guide to love was written by Eirene Donohue and directed by Steven Tsuchida. Cook portrays the role of Amanda Riley, an American travel manager who, after an unexpected breakup, decides to take a job in Vietnam to learn more about the country’s tourism sector and clear her head.

She also didn’t expect her ex-boyfriend to come back into the picture when things finally got better for her.

spoilers off A guide to love in advance.
Are Amanda and Sinh coming together in A Tourist’s Guide to Love?
Yes. Like many other rom-coms, A guide to love ends with the two main characters together. However, Amanda and Sinh had to overcome two obstacles before officially dating.
As Sinh shows Amanda various beautiful places in Vietnam, they become closer and develop feelings for each other. They share their feelings with each other as they share their first kiss in Thon Chang. But their budding romance is halted when Amanda’s ex-boyfriend shows up and wants to be with her again. To make matters worse, it was revealed that Amanda’s job, Tourista World Travel, officially bought Saigon Silver Star. This came as a complete shock to Sinh as he had no idea that his uncle was selling the family’s tour company and that Amanda was involved. Now Amanda must decide who she wants to be with and make things right with Sinh.
After talking to John, Amanda realizes that she no longer wants to be with him and they part ways forever. Later that night she talks to her boss Mona and suggests that they let Sinh run the tour company in Vietnam as he is the best for the job. Mona agrees and they end their conversation. Then Amanda looks for Sinh to apologize and express her feelings.
When she finds the rest of the tour group, she notices that Sinh is nowhere to be found. She learns from Anh that Sinh is on his way to his father to clear his head. Anh then offers to take Amanda to Sinh. Amanda sees Sinh standing in front of the Hanoi Opera House, waiting for the bus. She quickly crosses the street and stands in front of Sinh. She apologizes to Sinh for lying and tells him that while Tourista bought Saigon Silver Star, he will still be in charge. After laughing at an inside joke, they share a passionate kiss, letting us know they’ve officially gotten together.
A guide to love is available for streaming Netflix.
