WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Once you are picked up from your hotel, you will head off to the Presidential Palace (also called the Reunification Palace). Now preserved as a museum, the whole complex includes underground communications bunkers, as it used to be a headquarters of the Saigon Government during the American War.
You will then continue to the War Remnants Museum to see selected wartime exhibits.
You will then continue to the Chinatown and be stunned by the bold array of colours and swarmed streets.
You will satisfy your curiosity at the Binh Tay market - always as busy as a beehive. You will then visit the Thien Hau Temple built in 1760, dedicated to the Lady of the Sea, the powerful protector of fishermen.

Once you reach the city’s historic quarter you will marvel at the beauty of colonial buildings built by the French, such as former “Hôtel de Ville”, known for its ‘wedding cake’-style architecture.

You will then take lunch in a Vietnamese restaurant before continuing to the municipal Theatre with its main entrance inspired by the Petit Palais of Paris, later to the the General Post office designed by none other than Gustave Eiffel (1891) and of course Notre Dame Cathedral (1877- 83) with its neo-Romanesque architecture.At the end of the tour you will be driven back to the point of departure.
