What to expect
  • After hotel pickup by your private guide, your food tour begins with your first stop—a restaurant in Bun Moc. Enjoy a tasting of soup, and then continue to Ben Thanh Market to marvel at the food stalls brimming with seasonal produce and fresh meat. Next, head to the local food area to taste typical items such as banh khot (mini pancakes), goi cuon (spring roll), and bot chien (fried rice cake), made right in front of you, and then enjoy a walk through central Ho Chi Minh City for a look at the architecture, listening to your guide's commentary about the city's history. Cross one of the oldest bridges in town, and pause for a photo op as the sun starts to set. You'll then hop in a vehicle with your guide for the drive to the 'snail district,' where you'll sample a selection of snails before visiting EON Heli Bar, located on the 52nd floor of Bitexco Financial Tower, for a drink.  Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in the evening.
