Ho Chi Minh City Culture Trail

Immerse yourself in local culture


ITINERARY:

 

Meet and greet at your hotel at 8.00am. The tour will start from the FITO Museum - a fascinating display of nearly 3,000 items and artifacts, some dating back to the stone age, documenting the study of traditional medicine in Vietnam.

 

Next, we will stroll through Chinatown to experience the lifestyle of the largest congregation of Viet-Chinese in Saigon. Here, you will learn the difference between the Viet-Chinese community and their countrymen. You will also see a stark contrast in the design of  buildings, and the products that are being sold.

 

And if you are a tea lover, you will appreciate our next stopover at a 50 yr old traditional Ginseng tea shop. Our expert will introduce you to the fine art of traditional tea brewing and consumption.

 

Finally, we will visit the Thien Hau pagoda, the most stunning temple in Ho Chi Minh with its exquisite architecture and figurines. Taking its influence from Chinese beliefs, the pagoda is said to be the protector of sailors and fishermen. The tour ends at 12.00pm.
