Day 1: Saigon, Vietnam

Meet your guide at your hotel and head out early for an iced coffee at the Bird Café in the beautifully manicured gardens of Tao Dan Park. The café is a popular spot for many locals who come to take in the morning air, show off their prize birds, and chat with friends over a freshly brewed cup of Vietnamese coffee. After a spot of breakfast at a restaurant where you can try pho, the national dish, you navigate the back alleyways and street vendors to Cho Lon, the heart of
Saigon’s Chinatown. Cho Lon is like no other district in Saigon, it is a hive of activity that holds your attention from the moment you arrive. A district with a long and colorful history, we take you to see a secret bunker and even the former Revolutionary Headquarters, hidden away in plain sight. At this point, you will be getting hot and hungry, so you make your way to a favorite lunchtime watering hole. Getting there is also an adventure in itself as it involves finding your way to an obscure apartment block where you climb to the roof for a delightful lunch overlooking the city rooftops. Lunch is followed by a walk through central Saigon to work off the excess. A bit further, you come across The Café Apartment, an old nine-story apartment building that residents have converted into funky, stylish coffee shops and boutiques. At The Café Apartment, there is a perfect place to relax for a traditional Vietnamese tea-tasting experience. You might not be a tea connoisseur, but you will find it fascinating all the same. After a long day of exploring, it is a great way to end the tour.
