What To Expect

Asiana Link Travel
Saigon as the city is still frequently referred to be Vietnam’s largest city. It is a fast-paced city full of contrasts as street vendors selling fruit and vegetables can be seen next to glitzy western-style bars and boutiques. Saigon’s history is only 300 years old. In 1859 the city was captured by the French and became the capital of Indochina. From 1956 until its dramatic demise in April 1975 it was the capital of the US-backed Republic of Vietnam. This FULL day city tour unravels Saigon’s turbulent past and also provides a glimpse into the fascinating variety the city has to offer.

• Admission Ticket Free

We will visit the following places of interest in the morning:

The Reunification Palace: Here on April 30th, 1975 the Vietnam War officially ended when tank number 843 of the North Vietnamese Army crashed through the gates of what was, at the time the residence of the President of the Republic of Vietnam.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

War Remnants Museum
War Remnants Museum: Formerly known as the Museum of American War Crimes, this is a poignant display of the futility of war. Some of the black and white photography in the ‘Requiem’ exhibit is particularly touching, dedicated to both foreign and Vietnamese journalists and photographers who perished during the conflict. The courtyard outside contains the spoils of war, namely rusting jets, tanks and cannons captured from the American military machine.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral
Notre Dame Cathedral and Old Post Office: Built between 1877 and 1883 this is one of the best examples of classical French colonial architecture. Remarkably every stone used in its creation was shipped from France to Vietnam. Her two 40m towers, topped with iron spires dominate the city’s skyline.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Central Post Office
The Old Post Office is another example of French colonial architecture and is also the country’s largest post office. 

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Emperor Jade Pagoda
Jade Emperor Pagoda: Built in 1909 in honor of the supreme Taoist god, this is one of the most spectacularly atmospheric temples in HCMC, stuffed with statues of phantasmal divinities and grotesque heroes. The pungent smoke of incense fills the air, obscuring the exquisite woodcarvings.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Binh Tay Market
After lunch at a local restaurant; we’ll take a cyclo to some of the bustling markets where Sài Gòn life thrives: Flower market, pet market, and second-hand market, even the market where accessories and parts for motorcycles are sold… and Bình Tây wholesale market, one of the biggest markets in Hồ Chí Minh city. 

Your visit to Thiên-hậu temple, to gain insights into Vietnamese spiritual practices, will be the perfect finale for this enlightening and entertaining tour!

Your driver will complete the excursion by taking you back to your hotel (District 1 only) or drop-off somewhere at city center as request.

Lots to see and do on the full day tour, lunch was in a quiet restaurant which was a nice change and lovely food. In the afternoon we had a 2 hour tour by cyclo. Hats off to the riders. Make sure you wear a hat and top up the sunscreen in the afternoon as that sun is fierce.

It was a very pleasant tour around the inner city of Ho-chi-min. In fact Nam, our guide, was able to answer all question we had. We were a very small group of 3 persons which made the tour quite exclusive. I will certainly recommend Nam and your tour operator.thank jou very much, annette
