Old mysterious apartment building

Built in 1968, Nguyen Thien Thuat building has kept plenty of memories of Saigon from the Wartime up to now. It’s worth to come and enjoy the ancient atmosphere, which is unique and totally out of place among the modern Saigon.

This is an integrated destination which has lots of residents from many parts of Vietnam to come and live for a long time. That’s the reason why its cuisine is really fascinating.

Over 250 years old temple

Ba Thien Hau (Lady of the Sea) temple in Saigon is a Buddhist temple dedicated to the Chinese sea goddess, Mazu.

It’s believed that she had protected and rescued ships and fishermans by flying around on a mat or cloud. Mazuism is connected with traditions and beliefs from both Taoism and Buddhism. You will find this temple in ‘Cholon’ (Chinatown) in District 5, which is roughly a twenty minute drive from the city centre.

Special market

There is a less-known market floating on Kenh Te canal in District 7. The market’s style reminds to the daily life of people living in Mekong Delta (Western Region of Vietnam). Tourists can see dozens of boats at anchor along the canal selling typical fruits of the Mekong Delta such as banana, coconut, rambutan, mango, and grapefruit, etc.

Statue of a Mahayana Buddhist monk

At midday on June 11, 1963, the venerable monk Thich Quang Duc immolated himself to protest repression against Buddhism by the former Sai Gon regime. To memorize his struggle for peace, independence and reunification, his statue was built in a park on Cach Mang Thang Tam Street, where the act took place.

Biggest Wholesale Flower Market

Ho Thi Ky is one of the biggest flower markets in Saigon since 1987, which  is really famous for fresh and colorful flowers carried from different parts of Vietnam.

The lively beauty and diversity of flowers can get visitors stunning at the first time. This market opens 24/7 and is always bustling, rusty and energetic, especially in special events and holidays.

Coffee and tea time

In China town, we will visit an old apartment and enjoy tea with many types of jams in the local coffee shop.
