Old Saigon Walking Tour
Take a walk through the city streets to unearth the secrets of Saigon.
Set off from your hotel to a thriving local market to see how these bustling and vibrant markets play a major role in the daily lives of Vietnamese people. From here stroll through the colourful back alleyways lined with flower shops and breathe in the aromas of the freshly cut blooms. Pass through another street where mechanics specialise in restoring vintage Vespa scooters. Take in the scenes of local life as you wander these narrow lanes.
Stop for a refreshing traditional iced coffee in a hidden café frequented by locals. The oldest coffee shop in Saigon, this old fashioned establishment has a colourful history stretching back over seven decades. Continue the walk to a street filled with shops selling locally-made guitars and then make your way to a small house with a secret bunker under the floor. It was used by the VC commandos to store weapons for the attack on the building of the president of South Vietnam in 1968.
From here transfer back to your hotel by vehicle.
