Detailed Itinerary: (L)

Pick up at your hotel we will take you on a tour of the city that will touch on some of the historical antecedents to modern Sai Gon as well as delving into some of the more everyday traditional lifestyle of the Saigonese. Head to Tao Dan park for local style of coffee shop and watch bird club in District 1.
Make your way to Ho Thi Ky wholesale flower market in district 10.
Pay a short visit a moblie wet market - a stunning rural market on its informal setting and friendly market goers . This local market also attracts more people from the downtown. They don’t mind to travel that far to find a real fresh vegetable and free range stuffs such as: Chicken, free range beef, pork, frogs, Eels...etc
Heading back for the heart of the busy wholesale quarter with a visit to Chinatown, known locally as "Cho Lon". Cho Lon located in District 5 and while there we will stop to visit an ancient temple.Stroll through the backstreets market of Tan Thanh where jungles of motor-parts are provided for some 6.5 million scooters in Saigon. Interestingly, hundreds of U.S ammunition boxes found their way to this market after the Vietnam War and are now being reused. After that we'll head to District 8 to explore the low land with its many small stilt houses located along the canal to the Sai Gon River. This area is worth exploring to see the way of life for the many immigrants to this city and to see how they go about acclimatising to the conditions here to eke out a life. You will be astonished and amazed by what you see here and it will be a real contrast to the comfortable life in the newly built luxury residences in nearby District 7 with some Villas and Mansions costing up a million of Dollars.
