Ho Chi Minh City

Today a connection with the local way of life in the big city. Vietnamese generally wake early, for a chance to exercise in the local park, enjoy a chat over an early morning coffee or for commuters to enjoy a tasty breakfast on their way to work. Early morning markets are also at their busiest as even today many Vietnamese shop daily for their food requirements.

Experience a mode of transport from the past as we discover the Secrets of Saigon.
The cyclo was ‘the’ mode of transport until the end of the 1990’s and there is no better way to get up close with the buzzing streets. Your cyclo driver will expertly navigate you through the streets to Tao Dan Park to meet the community that makes this park special. 

The colourful wholesale flower markets are well worth a look and a walk-through Antique street reveals items from a bygone era. Sample a very common morning ritual of coffee Vietnam style!

Then meander into a piece of Saigon's past, into a part of Saigon that retains the old-style community housing. Walk the narrow alleyways between the houses and on to a bustling local market street.
