Full description
At 8:30 AM, start your day with a convenient hotel pick-up that transfers you to your first destination: the War Remnants Museum. This museum presents an important but one-sided history of the appalling legacy of the decades of war that have ravaged Vietnam. At 9:30 AM, head to China Town to visit Binh Tay market. Its center is busy, crowded and messy with small aisles selling all manner of goods. This market sometimes disappoints tourists when compared to other markets in Ho Chi Minh as the products are not that varied, but the main draw to Cholon is not to shop but to enjoy the authentic Chinese atmosphere that has existed here for hundreds of years. At noon, you'll head to a local restaurant for lunch where you will be served delicious Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup). Spend the rest of the day visiting important landmarks. Start with the Reunification Palace, which was the residence and workplace of the President of South Vietnam until the end of the war in April 1975. Continue on to the Notre Dame Cathedral, the General Post Office, French colonial structures and a lacquer workshop. Finish your day with a convenient drop off to your hotel.

Thank you for this wonderful day in Saigon. Well organized, our guide Hung went from sight to sight. The driver was always ready to drive to the next station. Hung speaks perfect German and we felt very well informed and entertained. It was an unforgettable day in this city. Recommended to anyone who doesn't have too much time in Saigon. Seen all the major sights and had a lot of fun included. A big thank you to our guide.

Was a nice and good taxi driver, nothing more

Little added value from the guide. Was nice, but you expect more. His English was also very poor
