Ho Chi Minh City Hyper Local Trail

Experience everything unique to locals



Meet and greet at your hotel at 7.00am. The tour starts to the delightful chirping of the birds at Tao Dan park, fondly referred to as the "bird cafe". This where bird lovers come together daily to socialize over a cup of coffee, but more importantly, to show off their prized feathered possession.


Next, we will visit 2 popular hangouts of the locals - Ngang Bridge and Turtle lake. These places have very interesting stories to tell, but are better known today as a dating site for young Vietnamese couples. Why? Join us to find out.


Our host will continue to share his stories over a cup of coffee at one of the most unique cafes in Ho Chi Minh. The waterfall sitting behind the walls of the cafe is a strong reminder of the rich (and often quirky) coffee culture in Vietnam.


Finally, we will explore hidden streets and gems only known to, and visited by the locals. Whether its great food that you are looking for, or interesting gifts like an antique bowl or a new wig, these streets are sure to spring a few surprises. The tour ends at 12.00pm.
