Overview

What to Expect

On this private 3-hour tour you will discover Ho Chi Minh City in the morning. Your guide and driver will pick you up early at 7:00 to catch the first rays of the sun and a chance to see the city waking up. The traffic is light at this hour and your local form of transport (an open style van with no air-conditioning) will allow you to be fully immersed in the atmosphere of the city.The first stop is Tao Dan Park where locals practice their morning exercises – Tai Chi, aerobics, and badminton. Stroll around the park to a small pagoda where you are likely to see locals performing daily prayers. Buddhism in Vietnam has had a symbiotic relationship with Taoism, Chinese spirituality, as well as aspects of indigenous Vietnamese religion.

Continue to a local wet market where shoppers haggle over the fresh produce on offer. Wander through the stalls where vendors are selling everything from live seafood to dried meats, fresh seasonal vegetables, and home ware goods.

Then take a break for breakfast. Alongside the locals at the Pho 24 restaurant you will sample of bowl of Vietnam’s national dish – pho noodle soup. Finish up the morning with a coffee at one of the city’s busiest coffee houses. A legacy of the French, coffee houses are a poplar meeting spot for local students, the business set, artists, and the trendsetters of the city – a great place to people watch! Transfer back to your hotel around 10:00.
