Ho Chi Minh City Urban Adventures

Day tours, with a local


Ho Chi Minh City Urban Adventures will not only take you amongst the sights, sounds and smells of Ho Chi Minh City, but will also show you the daily life of the nearby Mekong delta areas on uniquely designed Ho Chi Minh City tours.

 


Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam with a population of about eight million people. The hustle and bustle of people rushing about their daily business gives the city a vital and dynamic atmosphere. Ho Chi Minh City is characterised by a vast variety of sights and sounds, from ancient pagodas, mosques and cathedrals to the former Presidential Palace and the War Museum, and from historical Dong Khoi Street (the Rue Catinat from Graham Greene's novel 'The Quiet American') to the busy markets of Ben Thanh and Cholon (Chinatown).

Most of the city life takes place on the streets which are lined with shops, stalls, and vendors, their wares spread out on the footpath, selling everything from soup to sophisticated electronics! French influence is evident in the excellent baguettes and coffee.

Taking one of our Ho Chi Minh tours shows you a different side to the city than what you'll find on most package tours. Discover the real Ho Chi Minh with Ho Chi Minh City Urban Adventures.

Good Morning Vietnam! Start the day the right way - with an up close and personal history lesson on guerilla warfare.

Temple and Tunnel tour Temples & Tunnels
from 4 reviews
From USD 69.00

One of the best things about travel is seeing how different things are out of your own backyard. On this Ho Chi Minh City tour you'll see just that as you encounter a faith that combines Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. You'll also see the Cu Chi tunnel system - a masterclass on guerilla warfare tactics. Got either of these at home? Thought not.

Saigon. A true culinary master. Legend, in fact. Get right down to the soul of this beast of a food city and spend three hours eating like a local. It may seem like non-stop culinary decadence because that’s just what it is. And you’re gonna love it.

It was a great trip into the Mekong. Covered some really cool spots including a great lunch location and fun motorbike ride. Would be good to see the floating markets while on this trip, but a good excuse to come back for another trip. Our guide was a really cool young girl and gave some great explanations about the lifestyle in the South. Very friendly
