Event description


You’ve probably already heard, Ho Chi Minh City is the second most dynamic city in the world. But what is the best way to explore this city? The answer is simple - find a local who can show you the best highlights of the city and share with you useful insights to prepare for your whole trip. This experience is brief, yet it helps tremendously for first time visitors who enjoy exploring the city by themselves whilst getting the insider tips that they cannot find anywhere else.

Here are a few of the most popular destinations that we recommend you include in your itinerary if you aren't sure where to start.


This is one of the most visited by Western travelers in Saigon. The museum displays an array of graphic images, which paint a vivid picture of the Vietnam War and the first Indochina War with the French colonialists. You will see the recreation of the infamous French tiger cage in Con Son prison, and certainly don't want to miss the anti-war photo gallery Requiem.


The Cathedral is an iconic historical site from the French Colonisation period. It was built upon an abandoned local pagoda for the Christian followers in the expedition army. Get some local advice as to when the best time is to capture its beauty!


Enjoy a cup of coffee at a hidden coffee shop or on the street. Either way will get you a unique experience for tasting both the famous Vietnamese coffee and watching the local life.
