Ho Chi Minh Experience Itinerary
Dive into the colourful and lively streets of Ho Chi Minh City on this action-packed city tour. Enjoy lunch with a local family, marvel at the Cu Chi Tunnels and enjoy the amazing food best this city has to offer.
Day 1 Arrive Ho Chi Minh City
Get set for an exhilarating adventure through the fleeting ensemble of motorbikes, street stalls, markets and cyclos that take centre stage in Ho Chi Minh. As it ambushes your senses, delight in the cumulative sound of a million mopeds, the indispensable aroma of star anise emanating from traditional pho, and the sweet taste of Vietnamese coffee. Take to the back streets of vibrant Chinatown, and enjoy a walking tour of the neighbourhood’s jugular, the thumping Cho Binh Tay market. Refuel on some of the world’s greatest cuisine, before visiting the War Remnants Museum for an insight into the turmoils that have scarred this diverse country throughout its history.

Day 2 Depart Ho Chi Minh City
Journey out to the Cao Dai temple, nestled in a pocket of the Tay Ninh district. Spend time with a local family over a home-cooked lunch, prior to attending the Cao Dai noon ceremony. Relish in the flash of enlightenment, before hitting the Cu Chi tunnels - a subterranean entanglement of passageways built by locals fighters in the Vietnam conflict. Return to Ho Chi Minh City, and revel in the frenetic energy as the shadows lengthen across this Vietnamese metropolis.
