What you can expect

Devote a day to discovering the historical and cultural treasures of Ho Chi Minh City with a private guide at your service. After exploring sites such as Independence Palace, the War Remnants Museum, and the Jade Emperor Pagoda, spend time wandering Chinatown and the lively Ben Thanh Market.

Start the day with convenient pickup from Phu My Port and travel northwest into the heart of Ho Chi Minh City. As you explore its bustling centre, find yourself in the midst of broad squares, colonial-era buildings, and stately pagodas. Discover a striking example of French influence at the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and immerse yourself in Vietnam's war history with visits to the Independence Palace and War Remnants Museum.

After a stop for lunch in a local restaurant, admire the Jade Emperor Pagoda, a Taoist landmark in which you can find immaculate wood carvings and statuaries. Then, spend time exploring Cholon, also known as Vietnam's Chinatown. Stroll among traditional architecture and learn more about the importance of Ho Chi Minh's Chinese community.

Your last stop of the day is the sprawling Ben Thanh Market, the largest of its kind in the city. Discover an array of wares, from artisan handicrafts to traditional textiles, and perhaps purchase a snack from one of the many tempting stalls before your guide escorts you back to Phu My Port.
