Overview
We take you to some historical points that are a bit off the beaten path in District 3, 10, 5, 6, and 11. Every district has different personalities. District 3 is well-known as the richest area during the American war. We visit a memorial monument, historical buildings, and outdoor local market as well. We then head to district 10 to see the brilliant colors of the downtown at the wholesale flower market. We not only see the flowers but also walk down small alleys that lead to the food market where you have to try one bowl of "Bun Mam" which is the noodle soup for your breakfast and try fresh fruit juice. Next up, a quick transfer to China town gathering in District 5,6, and 11. You will be blessed at one of the oldest and most fascinating temples in Saigon and see one of the biggest and best markets. Finally, on the way back to the hotel we will stop by the coffee shop to enjoy local coffee and see a secret underground weapons cellar of the Viet Cong army right in the coffee shop.

I went on a few tours during my time here and Ben was by the far the best guy to show me around. He has such a great insight and clear passion for his job and loved taking questions about the history of this city. Couldn’t recommend him higher! Thanks Ben!
