​Half Day Tour:  Secrets of Saigon City Safari
- Half Day
Like a local, hop on a public bus and get to see the new Ho Chi Minh City, its busy traffic while following its 10-line highway, its new skyscrapers including a view of the highest one in Southeast Asia, the construction of the new subway who will link the far suburbs to the city centre. Then, stop at a more than 200-year old communal house and be welcomed by the family who takes care of the temple and lives there. Spend some time visiting the serene place, get to know the local beliefs and discuss how
they spend their daily life.

Transfer to the jetty and cross the river by local ferry to reach a remote island which is surprisingly located right in the heart of Saigon. Enjoy the journey by motorbike through the small countryside-like paths of the island that are surrounded by coconut-trees, fields and charming houses. Make a stop at a local entertaining place where Saigonese love gathering for fishing. Stop at a 6-generation family home and meet the owner, an 80-year old man who will share some tea and show-off his orchard.

Close the tour with a pleasant 30-min cruise on modern public transportation. Take this great opportunity for some beautiful shoots while cruising along the Saigon river banks.

Transfer back to the hotel by public means of transportation.
