Why Visit Ho Chi Minh City?
Custom made tours to Ho Chi Minh City are a must for first time travellers visiting this exhilarating, modern metropolis. When flying into Ho Chi Minh City, you will feel a nervous flutter in your stomach. The outskirts of farmland and low-rise buildings build rapidly in a magnificent crescendo to the city centre, where gleaming silver towers sparkle above a hive of electrifying activity. Our custom made tours to Ho Chi Minh City will leave you buzzing and with a ravenous appetite to explore every inch of this brilliant city and country.
The place is utterly incomparable. It isn’t like flying into Hong Kong or Singapore, where you expect the set menu, the stock-standard big city experience with a few brief flashes of culture. Saigon is a swirling bowl of pho; intoxicating, unpredictable, and very, very moreish.
Imagine a destination where each street corner can transport you to a new dimension. One moment you can be spiralling through the intoxicating labyrinth of the Binh Thanh Markets, bursting with flavour and colour and bargains for days, the next, you’re taking a deep breath and gazing across the endless cityscape with an expertly crafted gin and tonic in hand from one of Saigon’s iconic rooftop bars. This city is a hell of a place, but one we are immensely proud to guide you through with a tailor made travel experience to ensure you don’t miss a thing.
