Description

The tour will begin with a ride to the Lady Thien Hau Temple. This temple, built to worship Lady Thien Hau (the goddess of the sea), is one of the most interesting and ancient temples in the China Town area. Thien Hau is the Vietnamese transcription of the Chinese name Tianhou ('Empress of Heaven'), an epithet of the Chinese sea goddess Mazu, the deified form of Lin Moniang, a medieval Fujianese girl credited with saving one or some of her family members from harm during a typhoon through her spiritual power. After visiting the temple, you will relax on cyclo (pedicab) going around China Town and visiting some local shops, where you can find many traditional Chinese products including medicinal herbs and clothing. China Town is an interesting place to see classical Chinese architecture reminiscent of years gone by with plenty of Chinese restaurants. We then visit Cha Tam Church (or Saint Francis Xavier Parish Church), is the first church for the Catholic parishioners of the local Chinese community in Ho Chi Minh City. Last stop is Binh Tay Market, constructed by the French in the 1880s, is located in the centre of Vietnam’s largest China Town district.
