Ho Chi Minh City
After a very early breakfast, your guide will pick you up from your hotel and you will catch the sunrise over Saigon. You will spend the morning immersing yourself in the atmosphere of the city.
You will make a stop at ‘Tao Dan Park’ where you will see the locals practising Tai Chi, aerobics and badminton for a spot of morning exercise. Stroll around the park to a small pagoda where you are likely to see locals performing daily prayers. You will also have the unique opportunity to enjoy a café sua da at the birds’ club. Local people gather here with their birds to relax, talk, enjoy a morning coffee and compare their birds.
After this, you will head to a market where shoppers haggle over the fresh produce on offer. Wander through the stalls where vendors are selling everything from live seafood to dried meats, fresh seasonal vegetables and home ware goods.
Take a break for breakfast. Alongside the locals you will sample of bowl Vietnam’s national dish - pho noodle soup at Pho Binh. After getting fueled up, you will visit some of the most iconic landmarks in Ho Chi Minh City, e.g. Notre Dame Cathedral, The Post Office and Reunification Palace.
After exploring the city, you will head back to your hotel to relax until the evening where you will then head to the street food night tour in the sleepless Ho Chi Minh City! You will be picked up from your hotel and will be taken to the city centre. Explore the city on the back of a scooter, like the locals and see how the city comes alive at sunset. Explore the streets and taste some of the local cuisines.
After this you will continue to a traditional quan (bia hoi) for dinner and drinks, where you will experience some of Saigon's best cuisine. After dinner you will head to a Vietnamese-style coffee shop.
