Option 1: Water Puppet Show & Dinner On Saigon Cruise

18:00 Pick up at the hotel. We will watch the Water Puppet Show.

19:30. Have dinner on Sai Gon Cruise. Enjoy your meal while cruising along the Sai Gon river and sightseeing a part of Sai Gon by night.

At around 10:00 pm, we will take you back to your hotel.

Option 2:  Saigon Street Food Tour On Scooter At Night.

At 18:00, our tour guide will meet and greet you at the hotel. You then receive safety instructions on how to ride on the back of a bike properly in order to ensure the safest experience.

You will participate in the rush hour of Saigon the way we, the locals do: all from the back of the bike. We ride through the beautiful lit boulevards, the back alleys and the busy streets, which is undoubtedly more awesome of an experience than looking through pictures in your handbook!

First, let’s enjoy Vietnamese pancakes (Bánh xèo), spring rolls,… and you will learn about the customs and background knowledge of the food you eat from our guide and you also will try how to make it. We also would sit on small plastic chairs in the alleys, enjoy our food and drink like Vietnamese.

Later on, our guide takes you around Saigon and explores "Chung cư" - a Vietnamese residential building which was built a very long time ago. We will sit down to taste coffee in the hidden coffee shop and learn how to make a glass of coffee without a machine. It is so good and that is why it has its place in everyone's bucket list when coming to Vietnam.

On our way, you will see local activities and discover small alleys where Vietnamese always enjoy their spare time in the evening and of course, getting some snacks (Vietnamese pizza) with which almost every Vietnamese falls in love, is a must.

Your last stop is the famous Vietnamese dessert, the sweet soup. You will have a chance to let us rock your senses until your jaw drops with 3 – 5 kinds of sweet soup desserts.

At around 10:00 pm, we will take you back to your hotel.

 DAY 2. HO CHI MINH CITY TOUR (B/L/D)

 

The morning, Luco Travel’s  tour guide will pick you up at the hotel and we will start the Ho Chi Minh City Tour. We will visit the War Remnants Museum: Formerly known as the Museum of American War Crimes, this is a poignant display of the futility of war. Some of the black and white photography in the ‘Requiem’ exhibit is particularly touching, dedicated to both foreign and Vietnamese journalists and photographers who perished during the conflict. The courtyard outside contains the spoils of war, namely rusting jets, tanks and cannons captured from the American military regime.

After that visitors can visit The Reunification Palace: This is one of the most important buildings in the city. Here on April 30th 1975 the ‘American War’ officially ended when tank number 843 of the North Vietnamese Army crashed through the gates of what was, at the time, the residence of the President of the Republic of Vietnam.

 

The Opera House

 

Then you can go sight-seeing at The Notre Dame Cathedral and Old Post Office: built between 1877 and 1883. This is one of the best examples of classical French colonial architecture. Remarkably every stone used in its creation was shipped from France to Vietnam. Her two 40m towers, topped with iron spires dominate the city’s skyline. The Old Post Office is another example of French colonial architecture and is also the country’s largest post office. Visit former US Embassy.

Enjoy your lunch at the restaurant. (Cooking class can be arranged upon request)

Afternoon: Visit The Opera House, City Hall, Jade Emperor Pagoda, Ben Thanh Market: This bustling market is very popular with tourists, primarily due to its central location. It has a wide selection of goods ranging from fake Nike shoes to beautiful silk Ao Dais.

Dinner at the restaurant and back at the hotel.

It is now a popular spot for both Vietnamese & foreign tourists - the network of over 250km of tunnels became legendary when they played a vital role in the War. In their heyday, the tunnels were functioning underground cities that included numerous trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers & kitchens.
