Things to do in Ho Chi Minh city

Walking tour in Chinatown with local guide


  • 4 hours in total

  • Transports included

  • Pick up at your hotel

What To Expect

A flexible tour in term of transportation, though walking is preferred, if you can't, we can always have cyclos instead.

Saigon's Chinatown is still heavily influenced by Chinese culture and preserves that influence perfectly as if this is small China within the city. Many of the community here are people of Chinese descent, and actually, they are so great in number, they outnumbered the Vietnamese ones. With a high ratio of pagodas, temples, markets and the red lantern, Chinatown is one of the most fascinating parts of the town that many other guides, unfortunately, don't bother paying much attention.

Wander, and maybe get lost in the maze we call Chinatown in a 4-hour walking tour or better yet, a 2-hour cyclo tour and experience this hidden gem of Saigon.

Itinerary

  • In the morning, we will pick you up at your hotel or port (offer for tourists who go on cruises), but the starting time is entirely up to you.
  • We will either take a public bus or a taxi to go to Chinatown, where we will kick off the morning with a warm bowl of noodle soup in Nguyen An street.
  • Wandering the streets will be next in our menu, and there are many interesting streets to stroll through:
    • The pet fish street, where you can see all of the colors of the tropical fishes, not just in one shop, but in all of the shops on that street.
    • The lantern street, where shades of red are prominent, for reds are thought to be the best of all colors and can bring prosperity to whoever own one of the lanterns on their wedding day.
  • We will stop at Ong Bon temple along the way to our real attraction:
    • Kim Bien Market, where you can find all types of spare parts and chemicals within the tiny aisle of the market.
    • Binh Tay Market, the symbol of all the Chinese in the community.
  • Walk through a fruit wholesaling market to reach Cha Tam Church, and then take a stroll at the fabric road to see all the finest and prettiest and most colorful tailoring materials.
  • We will come across typical Vietnamese market at Phung Hung street on the way to the Quan Am Temple, the ritual custom street, and the herbal medicine street, then stop at Thien Hau sea-guard temple.
  • Take a ride to Van Phat Temple, and if we are really lucky, we will come in time for their daily mid-day ceremony.

Plan your trip

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximizes your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What are the cancellation and refund policy?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
