Ho Chi Minh City shore excursion for cruisers


Your adventure begins when your driver picks you up at the agreed meeting point and takes you on an unforgettable journey to your Ho Chi Minh City shore excursion. As you drive through the picturesque countryside, you will see local Vietnamese farmers working in the lush green fields. The trip takes about 2 hours and offers you the opportunity to get to know the typical landscape of this region intensively.

Once you arrive in Ho Chi Minh City, you will be welcomed by your local tour guide and your joint exploration can begin.

Welcome to an unforgettable journey of discovery through Saigon - the fascinating "Pearl of the Orient"! Let yourself be enchanted by the unique blend of colonial past and vibrant here and now. Your experienced local guide, who has called this vibrant metropolis his home for many years, will accompany you on this adventure.

First, we dive into the heart of the French-colonial old town. Passing imposing buildings such as the magnificent Notre Dame Cathedral, the historic post office and the old town hall, you will experience Saigon's architectural gems. The Opera House will captivate you with its beauty.

But the original Vietnam has also gained a firm foothold here. On Le Cong Kieu Street, known for its junk and antique dealers, and in the winding alleyways, the pure local lifestyle awaits you. Let yourself be carried away by the vibrant wet markets with a refreshing sugar cane juice.

We continue to the imposing Bitexco Tower, which we admire from the outside, before visiting the Buddhist Giac Lam Pagoda. A stroll along the lively Nguyen Hue pedestrian zone is a must.

Your guide will then take you to Saigon's Chinatown "Cho Lon". Experience the bubbling energy of the streets, head to the lively Cho Binh Tay market and let yourself be overwhelmed by the sensory impressions of the exotic goods.

The grand finale is the poignant War Remnants Museum - a tribute to the senselessness of war with touching black and white photographs and an exhibition of captured military vehicles.

Instead of visiting the remarkable War Remnants Museum, you can end your day in an equally impressive way - experience the viewing platform of Landmark 81, Vietnam's tallest skyscraper, and enjoy an unforgettable view of the city's vibrant skyline over a cozy cup of aromatic Vietnamese coffee.
