Top 10 Things to Do in Saigon

18 Sep


Eat Pho – Vietname Noodles – and drink Vietnamese coffee at any one of the many pop-up cafes. It’s cheap and you just have to point to what you want

  • 4.

    Take a cruise in the Mekong Delta for the timeless scenery of farmers planting rice in their paddies or to see its floating markets and lush green scenery

  • 5.

    Tour Saigon on the back of a motorbike – it’s a great way to see the city and feel like a local

  • 6.

    Get in touch Traditional Vietnamese Medicine or Thuoc Nam, influenced heavily by China. Hopefully you won’t need it, but it’s really interesting to know!

  • 7.

    Crawl through the Cu Chi tunnels to get a sense of how the Viet Cong used to hide out during the war. Also, fire an AK-47 nearby!

  • 8.

    Get inspired by the French: learn to cook French-influenced Vietnamese food or take in an opera at the Saigon opera house

  • 9.

    Play like a kid in Vietnamese style waterpark. Let’s face it – we all love them! And Ho Chi Minh has one of the best

  • 10.

    Drink snake and scorpion wine – it’s believed to improve health and virility. Don’t worry, the venom is canceled out by the alcohol. Mot, hai, ba, do (one, two, three, cheers)
