What you can expect

- This is a WALKING tour! So you will walk quite some distance.
**February 6th: I changed the itinerary a bit, since China Town is not that cool to visit.

Saigon is an old name of Ho Chi Minh city, though nowadays some people still prefer call it Saigon. It's a crazy city with an intense traffic experience and plenty of interesting history to discover. Not to mention the amazing food you just have to try out!

First of all, let's check out the War Museum, a complete must-visit while in Saigon.
Of course, you won't miss Notre Dame Cathedral, the Central Post Office, Independence Palace and more beautiful French architecture.

After this, there are 2 OPTIONS for you to choose:
- Pay a visit to a 300 year old temple far off away from the downtown. You get to see more another part of this bustling city. Its located in a middle of a river, isnt it cool?. We will take a ferry to go to another side. Its peaceful there, suprisingly in crazy HCMC.... We have lunch at a very local restaurant in the area.

- I take you to a local spa where you pay for a package with a very reasonable price for what they offer. It's also a bit off the downtown. NO tips needed there. A package includes: manicure , pedicure (basic one), sauna, back rubbing, ear cleaning hair washing, facial massage, foot massage, body massage(they do it very strong here, for some people who like strong massage, you will enjoy it). Its a decent place, you will have your pyjamas when walking around the place. Male and Female. Price is 500,000vnd for everything I list above. Food and drinks are not included. (I might leave here earlier than you though, as staying here could take hours)

Please let me know which option you would like to do when write me.
Thank you and hope to hang out with you!

This is the plan

Meet up in the downtown (your hotel)
Visit the interesting War Museum
Take in the beautiful colonial French architecture in the French quarter: the Independence Palace, Notre Dame Cathedral, Central Post Office
Check out more a couple of nice, unique spots in the city
Go with option 1, or option 2 that you choose

Hi! I've been doing this for quite some time. I've met many amazing people along the way. Thanks to Withlocals.
I love to travel to new places as far as I can reach to... been to countries in southeast asia, and a few ones in Europe.
I am curious about everything in life.
Animal lover.
I like to meet with new people, hang out with you as a local living here, share my perspective of the current Vietnam, a bit of the history, and get to know you as well. I don't read history from books for you to hear.

If you're SERIOUS, CLOSE-MINDED people, please please please please DON'T book my tours. Please don't ruin my day! If I like you, I talk a lot, you can see that easily. Let's meet up and have fun!!"
