Explore unique local features of Saigon City that perpetuates the daily lives of local Vietnamese


Ho Chi Minh City is also known as Saigon. It was once considered as the Pearl of the Far East and now it is the modern metropolis with more than 10 billion inhabitants. Today the city is the economic center of Vietnam but not too long ago; this is where the heroic resistance against aggressors and the struggling process for independence took place.
Experience the local ways of living in the city - discovering popular local green places in Eco Village, learning the local traditions in the form of beautiful Vietnamese hand embroidery, understanding old heritage and religious practices in ancient Taoist temple.
Don't miss out on exploring the key attractions that are synonymous with Saigon identity - the Reunification Palace, the City Hall, the Opera House, its Central Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral.

A Recent Review of this tour

Saigon is a beautiful & energetic city. We had a wonderful day with Lee as our guide. We saw the old and the new city. Lee's knowledge of the history, geography and customs made our tour even more interesting. He also had a great driver. We would use Lee again. Definitely recommended.
