Description

We'll start our tour with two of the city's finest examples of colonial architecure: the General Post Office, an icon of Saigon, and Notre Dame Cathedral, built by the French. We will go past the Reunification Palace (previously known as the Presidential Palace), where the president of South Vietnam lived and worked until the Fall of Saigon. Outside the palace, your guide will tell you about these events and give you time to take photos.

Next we head to the War Remnants Museum, where you can see old military equipment and other memorabilia during the Vietnam War. You can also visit the larger exhibits, including an F5A fighter and a UH1-Huey helicopter.

From the Museum, we'll get on a traditional three wheeled cyclo for a ride around Ho Chi Minh. Our driver uses pedal power to take us around, allowing us to take in the sights, sounds and smells of the city without the barrier of a car window or the sound of a noisy engine! We'll head to Hai Ba Trung, just past the pink church to Tan Dinh Market for a real Vietnamese experience. This genuine Saigon wet market is where locals come to do their daily shopping and chat with their neighbors. We'll also ride toward Tao Dan Park, before hopping off the cyclos and taking a short walk to Ben Tranh Market. This iconic market with its famous clock tower is where the tour ends. You can continue exploring Ben Thanh market or you can get tips from your guide about further exploration in nearby areas or your trip back to your hotel.
