Description

You'll be collected from your accommodation at 5:30PM, at which point you will travel to the Nguyen Thiet Thuat Apartment in district 3. Nearly half a century old, the Nguyen Thien Thuat Apartment is a bustling apartment complex in the heart of District 3. Constructed in 1968, houses in the apartment are mostly owned by working men living in the surroundings. Like other old apartment buildings in Saigon, there are a lot of car parks, coffee shops, and small restaurants at the foot of the construction. As the home of the majority of working people, affordable eateries have developed around this neighborhood, and for this reason the Nguyen Thien Thuat apartment is considered a mini food fair of district 3. Following a short walk through the area, you will continue on your itinerary to a flower market in district 10. Being considered as the 'Dalat flower garden of Saigon”, the Ho Thi Ky Flower Market was established in the 1980s and is the largest wholesale flower market in Saigon. There is a wide range of flowers, from domestic species such as lilies, daisies, and orchids, to imported flower varieties such as Ecuadorian roses, red peony, and tulips, After going through the 'flower path' you will encounter a food-trading area named “the Cambodia market”, located right on the same street. There you can enjoy countless specialties of the south, with the first recommended dish being Thai seafood noodles. Thai noodles are made based on the idea of combining the famous Tomyum of Thailand with the famous sour soup of Western Vietnam. Whilst there you will also have the opportunity to enjoy some of the famous street food beloved by the locals, such as tornado potatoes, rice paper with tamarind sauce, peach tea, avocado ice-cream, and coconut ice-cream. After satisfying your appetite in this street food heaven, your tour guides will take you to another food-selling area in district 4. There you will have the opportunity to try traditional Vietnamese bread, which is filled with pork, bacon, butter, and spices. Your tour will then conclude with a tasting of a sensational dish such as matcha or an egg-flan cake, before you are returned back to your accommodation.
