OPTION 1 BE A SAIGONESE

Meals: n/a | Accommodation: N/A

We get public vehicle from your hotel at 7:30am to Tao Dan park for bird watching. Sit down there and taste a cup of coffee like a local while listening to songs of variety of birds. Then take a walk on main street and turn left Ban Co market. This is real traditional market in South. We have opportunity to go in depth of zig-zag alleys. You’ll visit a house where used to be the base of hidden weapons to support Viet Cong soldiers against American army in Mau Than campaign in 1968. Then, it’s time to taste local drinks or foods: sweet soup “chè”, sugar cane “nước mía”, dry beef salad “gỏi khô bò”, mixed rice paper “bánh tráng trộn”...After funny experiences, we get a public vehicle again back to your hotel. End of services.

 

OPTION 2 GLIMPSE OF CITY HIGHLIGHTS

Meals: n/a | Accommodation: N/A

We depart from your hotel at 8am or 1pm and discover the historical highlights of city. The first place is the Reunification Palace - a blend of traditional ritual and modern architecture, served as the presidential palace of South Vietnam until reunification in 1975. The building now functions as a museum, offering tours of the former state rooms, presidential office and library, living quarters of the president's family, and underground war rooms. Then, you'll also visit the War Remnants Museum - one of the most sobering, yet popular, museums in the city. It highlights the suffering of the Vietnamese people at the hands of the French and American forces up to 1975, and while its perspective is less than perfectly balanced, its exhibits nonetheless are well designed and ably document the folly of war. You’ll find a collection of weapons, machinery, aircraft, tanks, artifacts and horrific photographs illustrating the devastating affects of napalm, Agent Orange and other weapons of mass destruction. Then keep walking up to Ho Con Rua area, find out a nice place to refresh by ice juice or taste a cup of coffee like locals. Over there, you have an opportunity to talk to pupils or students, they often gather after lessons. It’s really funny experience after getting back to your hotel.
