What we will do

Tour starts at 08:30 or 13:30. Head to Cholon, the city’s Chinatown district to start a walk through one of the biggest fabric markets, which is known far and wide for its long-established role as a crucial distribution hub of fabrics, not only for the city but the entire southern region. Walking past scenes of everyday life on the way and get a chance observe the street life of the area by venturing through Cho Lon’s busiest streets and its local market before paying a visit to a Chinese-style Church built in 1900. A pew in the church is marked with a small plaque identifying the spot where President Ngo Dinh Diem was seized after taking refuge here with his brother Ngo Dinh Nhu, after fleeing the Presidential Palace.

Then hop on a xích lô, our traditional transport to have a ride around the area, admire the beauty of Old Chinese architecture and ancient buildings of 19th – 20th century, ride along the herbal street and take a chance to learn about variety of herbs and make a stop at one of the most famous Chinese clan houses. Dedicated to Chinese General Quan Cong, this clan house was most impressive for its exquisite gilded woodwork, where devotees gather to perform daily prayers. Take time to make a wish, write it on a small card and attach it to one of the incense coils in the local custom. Xích lô will be waiting to take you back to the hotel after this insightful visit.
