Commonly known as "Saigon", Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam; a home to more than 10 million people and 8 million scooters! We can still see well-preserved colonial buildings and war relics in the city. On the other hand, high rise and modern buildings are making their presence felt.
Although the city is chaotic with endless slow-moving traffic, the hustle and bustle of the city do not affect the unique friendliness of the people.

Visit a busy and colorful market in alleyways where several things are being sold, including fresh vegetables, fruit, spices, live fish, shoes, clothes and the like. It is a part of our culture and this market just opens daily mornings.
The first stop in Chinatown is Thien Hau temple considered one of the greatest temple in Chinatown, attracting a great number of local visit. Its architecture is an outstanding and unique.
Then, a short trishaw ride will take us to many small alleys and busy streets in Chinatown where numerous marketplaces are set up. it will definitely be a highlight of our day trip.
You can see a huge contrast of poor-stilt houses and middle-class apartments. Have a nice taste of local coffee and have a chat with local owner. This place is definitely off the beaten path.

I am a Saigon based guide but happy to attend whole Vietnam tour.
1. The tour is private and flexible as well so please let me know if you have any special requirement.
2. I also arrange pick up and drop off at the airport.
3. If you arrive by cruise ships and have some time to spend, I am happy to customize your dream itinerary.
The size of our group kept changing. Xuan dealt with it in such a professional way. But the highlight was his own skills and personality. Smart, professional, and incredibly personable he made the day an absolute delight for all nine of us. If you want to see and experience HoChiMinh City in ways the standard tour will never provide, use Xuan. It will be the highlight of your trip!
Dear Steve, Thanks for a great review. And it's my honor to meet and become your private guide in Ho Chi Minh city. Once again, Thank You for visiting Vietnam. I do hope to welcome you all again soon. Happy holidays! Xuan Le,
Me and my family had a few hours between our transfer so we decided to spend those hours in Ho Chi Minh city. Xuan was an excellent guide as he was energetic and had detailed knowledge about the city as well as Vietnam in general. He showed us around the interesting landmarks in the city as well as taking us to local food restaurants. In all Xuan was a great guide as he was prompt and had a clear interest in the city’s culture and history. Strongly recommend
