After a satisfying meal travelers will comb through the stalls of Giac Lam Pagoda. This Chinese district of Cholon and Ben Thanh market is the perfect place for visitors to test their bargaining skills and collect souvenirs for the return trip home.
What to Expect
Once known as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City blends French colonial architecture and Chinese traditions to create a spirited city filled with temples, museum and rich history. This private full-day tour kicks off with visits to the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum, which explore the city’s tumultuous past.

The personalized tour includes a stop at Notre Dame Cathedral and the nearby Post Office, both fine examples of the French colonial architecture unique to this place. Enjoy a lunch of traditional dishes at a local restaurant and then head to Giac Lam Pagoda with your guide, who will also take you through the Ben Thanh Market, where you can collect items made locally before you return to your hotel.
