Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City
Duration: 4 hours
Meeting Point: 5:30pm District 1 Hotel pick-up
Finish Point: Hotel drop-off
Hop on your very own Vietnamese, eco-friendly cyclo, then lean back and relax and let your driver worry about navigating the bustling city. As you cruise through the lively streets of Ho Chi Minh City, take in the local culture, bustling markets, and enjoy the intricate architecture featuring French colonial influences. Travel to a local theater for a 50 minute Vietnamese water puppet show and watch the puppets seemingly come to life as they perform traditional folklore, legends, and historical tales that cover more than 800 years of history. After the show, head to the pier for a dinner cruise down the winding Saigon River aboard a colourful dragon boat. Along the way, indulge in a sumptuous Vietnamese buffet and enjoy live folk music and native dancing that showcases Vietnam's unique culture and heritage. The boat returns to the pier in the late evening for your return ride to your hotel.
