Hands down one of Asia’s most happening scenes, Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) hums with history, culture and a titillating dash of je ne sais quoi. On a private Ho Chi Minh City tour, you’ll discover why this former capital city is the “Pearl of the Far East,” and you’ll get intimately acquainted with its people’s resilient culture. Stroll along shaded boulevards and sip a Vietnamese coffee on the veranda of a colonial villa. If you’re in the mood for adventure, hop on a vintage Vespa and explore Saigon’s atmospheric back alleys. Don’t forget to try a delicious bahn mi, or seek out bun thit nuong and wave hello to the street vendors beckoning to you. Whatever your interests, we’ll help you explore Vietnam your way with a custom Saigon tour. Check out our sample itineraries and get an insider’s perspective on how to enjoy this exciting city.

What’s Special about Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)?

Home to big personalities, lively neighborhoods and the constant call of street vendors, this is the city that won’t quit. For a break, stroll the shaded boulevards lined with stately colonial buildings, or for a jolt of nightlife, join the throng at a lively quan bia. Our tailor-made Ho Chi Minh City tours show you how to make the best of storied Saigon.



CHARACTER

The friendly, lively Saigonese are hardworking and proud of their city, which is the most populous in Vietnam. You’ll find the locals here have big personalities and are always ready to engage.



CLIMATE

Ho Chi Minh City has two seasons, wet and dry, with an average year-round temperature of 28 degrees C. The wet season, which falls between May and October, sees daily rains, while the dry season spans from December to April.



ENTERTAINMENT

Private Saigon tours can take you to the pews of the famed Notre Dame Cathedral, a street-side pho stand, stylish gallery openings and everything in between. Hot nights are perfect for pulling up a plastic stool at a quan bia for a local beverage.



CULTURE

Colorful Daoist temples, French colonial façades, narrow alleys of shophouses, bustling quan bias and iconic historical sites all crowd together in Ho Chi Minh City. Manning them all are the charismatic locals.



LANGUAGE

The southern dialect of Vietnamese—quite distinct from the north—is the most widely spoken language in Ho Chi Minh City. French, spoken by many residents, is rapidly being replaced by English as a second language among the youth.



HISTORY

It’s hard to believe Saigon sprung up from a fishing village. The region developed over centuries under Khmer, Vietnamese and, later, French rule. Today, this fast-changing city is experiencing a cultural and economic boom but still manages to integrate traditional values.
