Start your day with a 2-hour guided sightseeing Saigon tour to discover the best of the city! Enjoy a nice light breakfast served on the boat and admire a new perspective of the city with great opportunities to photograph Saigon’s skyline and the busy port from the water.
Back to the land, a traditional cyclo will be waiting to take you on a classic ride through the “Herbal Medicine Street” with numerous old, open-fronted shops, many of which date back to the French era.
If you are a fan of tailored clothes, you might be excited about the Soai Kinh Lam fabric market with nearly 500 stalls with thousands of choices at surprisingly wholesale prices.
A visit to the historical Cha Tam Church should be a highlight of the trip. The church was built around the turn of the 19th century, decorated with horizontal lacquer boards and wood panels with inscriptions much like the surrounding Chinese style temples.
The last stop of would be Binh Tay, a Chinese-style architectural masterpiece and also the largest market in the city. This location offers you an attractive scene of the bustling daily lives of the locals and a wide array of colorful products.
