From Phu My Port - Exploring Saigon with a local expert


This is a special tour for exploration local areas that perpetuate the daily lives of ordinary Vietnamese living in Saigon. You will find yourselves drowned in the charming beauty of countryside, with gigs, a blue canal, dinghies, a rough monkey bridge and thatched cottages among lush water coconut trees. Then we also see how they grow the rice, how they catch a fish but in Saigon city.
You also don't miss out on exploring the key attractions that are synonymous with Saigon identity - the Reunification Palace, City Hall, the Opera House, Central Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral.
