Full description
Be shown this amazing city by a real local who speaks English and has excellent driving skills. Explore the different parts of the city from the tourist attractions to local areas and from the wealthy suburbs to the hidden slums. Discover at least seven districts, each known for different things.

At district 1, see Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral, Central Post Office, Student Bet coffee style park, and Nguyen Hue walking street. See the beautiful French colonial architecture and watch the local youth activities to understand why Saigon is known as a promised land in Vietnam. In district 3 learn about the Venerable Thich Quang Duc Monument. Thich Quang Duc monk burned himself to death to protest against the persecution of Buddhism during the Vietnamese War in June 1963. Explore some of the oldest buildings in Saigon and the typical shopping streets and small markets. This district is a desirable area for the middle-class with a quiet and tranquil atmosphere and French architecture villas.

Head to district 10 for the best flower market in Saigon. If you are a flower lover, make sure you do not miss this biggest wholesale market. Immerse yourself in many kinds of tropical and imported flowers with the most reasonable prices in town. District 5 and 6 are home to China Town and the most active shopping streets and traditional markets that locals go to. You can wander through the roosters and birds market, fabric market, traditional Chinese medicine market, and the biggest motorbike accessories market in Saigon. Learn why China Town in Saigon is different and how the Chinese and Vietnamese people live together and trade in Saigon.

Discover the real local town along the Saigon River in district 8 and 4. This is the time for a truly deep view inside the real life of normal local people. Some still live in slums on the other side of Saigon River and some are luckier with little homes in the car-free zone. Then head to the typical expat area of district 7, known as Japanese and Korean town. Unlike the other places you see on your tour, the Southern Saigon area is totally different with a brightly organized gated community.
