Discover the hidden side of local Vietnamese store and services only locals would know and explore the modest beauty of Ho Chi Minh at your own pace.
Hidden away from the prying eyes of tourists is the side of Vietnam that not many people know. In the narrow alleyway and corner of Ho Chi Minh City is a modest row of stores and services that only locals know. Much like how the alleyway makes up for an exciting exploration in Australia, discovering what lies around the hidden nook and cranny of Ho Chi Minh City also gives you the excitement of adventure as you see the true face of Vietnam in its modest form. This full day’s tour will give you plenty of chances to explore and find your way around the area while you look around for your photo opportunities.
The tour will start with a visit to a local market where you will see the lively commercial life of the local folks. At the market, local merchants selling meat, fish, vegetables and flowers will surround you and you can buy some local food to sample the unique taste of Vietnam. Then, you will continue your journey to a famous local temple where you can observe the religious ritual of local folks or make wishes for good luck in the coming days.
Moving on, you will head into the narrow alleyways of Ho Chi Minh City where cars can never pass through and explore what lies waiting ahead. There, you will have a glimpse of the real face of Vietnam. Hidden within the lively and modern buildings in the city are some traditional Pho stalls, your everyday haircut salons, motorbike mechanics and grocery stores all situated away from the main street. These places are the equivalent of alleywalk around Australia and exude their own charm in a way that only they know how.
Afterward, you will travel to a local Vietnamese house where you will have a chance to cook a Vietnamese traditional lunch before going to a local massage parlor. There, you will enjoy two of the finest select services offered including hair wash, foot massage, manicure and pedicure. You will finish your day with a refreshing drink in a Vietnamese coffee shop. Before finally settling down back to your hotel.
