Your custom tailored Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia tour for families...
Ho Chi Minh City - Culture Combination
Ho Chi Minh City is a boundless convergence of lights and energy, a swirl of contemporary culture, as Vietnam’s City of Commerce. There is an embracing sense of vitality in the movement of the locals, whether by motorbike or walking. In the whirlwind of modernity, pockets of heritage shine through. Timeless alleys erupt with the aroma of incense emanating from hidden temples. High-rises cast shade over houses with tiled roofs. The rows of Ben Thanh Market teem with vendors selling everything from vegetables to dried fruit, clothing to jewelry. The Jade Emperor Pagoda provides an atmospheric glimpse into the elaborate dedication to Ngoc Hoang, the Jade Emperor.
Your private transfer meets the family at the airport and escorts you to a fabulous hotel located near the heart of the bustling city. The aromas of chilies and coconut oil drift down the streets. Food stalls on the roadside have small tables and chairs set up for passersby, with people lining up to order soup or barbecued chicken skewers. The family has entered a beautiful world, where the past and present cultures of Vietnam seamlessly blend.
