Upon arrival at the port, your guide and driver pick you up and transfer to the meeting point. Start this adventure from the back of a Vespa driven by a professional local. Step by step discovers Ho Chi Minh City’s hidden charms and traditional culture with an unusual way out of normal traveling routes. In the early morning, visit Tao Dan Park for birds watching and Thich Quang Duc Monument which dedicated to a historical Buddhist monk burnt himself to fight against the anti-Buddhism policies promulgated by Diem Government.
After that, a quick stop at Flower Market to capture some Instagrammable photos of colorful flowers. Pass by Ong Bon Pagoda, also known as Nhi Phu Temple. Built by the Fujian Congregation, the architecture is ironically carved with gold. Soak in the religious space, smell the aroma of burning incenses, and witness locals coming to pray for luck and health. Stroll along a small fabric valley to reach the old-fashioned Chinese medicine street.
Hop off the Vespa and come to some symbolized landmarks of Ho Chi Minh City including Saigon Old Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Ben Thanh Market. Immerse in the French-colonial architecture and get a glimpse of their history through stories told by your knowledgeable guide. Before sunset, say goodbye to the energetic city and return to the port for your next departure.
