Full description
Meet your guide in the morning and head to a local market to see the active commercial life of locals. At the market see merchants selling meat, fish, vegetables, and flowers. Have the chance to buy and sample local foods and enjoy the unique tastes of Vietnamese cuisine. Continue your journey to a famous and special temple and make a wish for luck.

Moving on, explore where cars can’t go, through the very small streets of Ho Chi Minh City. Have a glimpse of the real Vietnam. These out of the way paths and alleys truly capture the essence of this vibrant city. Come across pho stalls, typical haircut salons, motorbike mechanics, and grocery stores.

Afterwards, travel to a local Vietnamese house to cook a traditional lunch. What better way to relax after lunch than a trip to the massage parlor where you will enjoy two of some of the select services offered such as hair wash, foot massage, manicure, and pedicure. Finish your day with a refreshing drink in a Vietnamese coffee shop.
