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.

 

Not to be confused with the War Remnants museum, our next stop to the Vietnam History Museum promises an in-depth introduction to the rich culture of the country. Boasting 15 rooms which covers every period of Vietam's history, as well as a water puppet theatre, the museum serves as a good starting point for all culture buffs.

 

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 interesting aspects of Vietnamese tea culture, including the fine art of traditional tea brewing and consumption.

 

Finally, we will visit the Jade Emperor pagoda, one of the most stunning temples in Ho Chi Minh, with its exquisite architecture and impressive collection of figurines. Taking its influence from Chinese beliefs, the pagoda is said to be especially popular with worshippers who pray for fertility or problems at home. The tour ends at 12.00pm.
