This tour let you not only enjoy must-eat food in Saigon but also discover a Saigon’s hidden charm.
Your trip is going to star early in the afternoon as we take you to your first stop at the local restaurant of much loved Bun Moc. After this delicious soup, you shall be guided into Ben Thanh market. By crossing along food stalls filled with fresh ingredients, from alive-fish and raw meat to seasonal vegetables of all colours, you will reach a local food area. Here you shall taste some local’s favourite snacks like “goi cuon”, “banh khot” or “bot chien” made right on the spot, and enjoy fruit juice as coconut or sugarcane…
Take a short walk before tasting your next food, you will find yourself in a quiet and peaceful corner in the centre of chaotic Saigon - where you can take a look at pieces of history in the shape of antique decorations. On the way to your next destination, you’ll cross one of the oldest bridges – built back in the French colonial era - to enjoy the magnificent city view of Saigon and take some photos as the sun slowly starting to set.
Our car waiting for you at the other side of the bridge and drive you to “Snail District”. You shall taste various types of fresh snails and seashells made into delicious dishes, being stir-fried with butter and garlic, boiled with lemongrass and ginger, or sizzling grilled over charcoal.
For a memorable last stop, you will be served a drink with city sky-high view in a bar on the 52th floor of Bitexco Financial Tower, the tallest skyscraper of Saigon.
Back to the hotel around 18h30.
