Retracing Saigon Past With Vintage Car

From the pagodas, museums and European architecture of the city’s recent past to the growing number of skyscrapers, Saigon is a city of contrasts.

Meet with a respected history researcher at the hotel lobby. Retrace Saigon’s past with classical and timeliness beauty of a vintage car. Start at the French colonial area with a visit to the Archbishop's Palace and its more than 200-year-old house of prayer.

Continue through the years and meet with a local who lived through the Vietnam War. Visit Gia Long Palace, built in 1885 combining classical Baroque architecture elements with European and Oriental influences.
