A wonderful combination of city tour and street food tour
The weather was perfect for the trip. We first visited the Ho Chi Minh site. Here we had a chance to see the marble Mausoleum, magnificent Presidential Palace, awesome French Botanical Garden and beautiful House on Stilts. Afterward, our driver took us to the Temple of Literature where the first Vietnam university was established. The last one for the morning trip is Hoa Lo prison, a good opportunity to learn part of Vietnamese history through historic objects, artifacts and film here. Return to the hotel for refreshments and freshen up.
Afternoon, we took a street food tour, a great way to experience fantastic specialties and engage with local culture. We walked through the Old Quarter and part of the French Quarter, stopped by to try noodle soup, pancake, fresh spring rolls, egg coffee and variety of deep fried cakes.
I was very pleased to show this beautiful city and really enjoyed spend time with Brent and Helen who are very friendly.
