Discover both new and old Saigon

From the 1954 to 1975, Saigon was the capital of South Vietnam. Since July, 1976, Vietnam has been a unified country under the communist regime. Saigon was renamed Ho Chi Minh city. Nowadays, Ho Chi Minh city is the center for economy, education and commerce in Vietnam.

**Note: This tour is for pick up and drop off at Phu My Port. The distance between Phu My port and the center of Saigon city is about 70 km (about 1 hour and 20 minute drive).
I am here to assist you with any inquiries. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.


The driver and I will meet you at Phu My port gate with a sign bearing your name. The Phu My port gate is 8 to 15 minute walk from the ship. Then we will transfer you to Saigon city where you will see the sites listed below;
•The pagoda, some famous highlights of the city, market, the old US embassy( now the US general consulate), the roof of an apartment building from where the last helicopter picked up evacuees the day before the fall of Saigon and other exciting activities. If you wish to have lunch, I can take you to a place where you can dine on delicious Vietnamese food at a reasonable price. We can also stop at a free Wi-fi internet coffee shop if you desire light refreshments.
For me, the most important thing is your satisfaction. I am flexible with my itinerary and will show you the places that interest you most. It is the REAL Saigon experience! A tour to remember.

A Recent Review of this tour

Khoa's spoken English is good and he was particularly proactive in ensuring our meet-up went smoothly as we started the tour from the Phu My port. The tour was off the beaten path as we could experience some of the country-side and was allowed to see how the locals lived and travelled. The journey to HCM City was interesting as we got to experience the ferry crossing of Saigon River. The hammock rest stops and stop at a local farm house were the highlights. My party enjoyed the tour immensely.
