What is the itinary?
We all know Vietnam is an absolute legend when it comes to street food, and if you want to make the most of your time (and stomach space), you’ll want to head out with an in-the-know local to pick out the best of the best of Saigon’s street food. Put your eating pants on and follow us!
Our Saigon food tour kicks off with a short walk from the Opera House to the Old Market, passing architecture that transports you back in time with glimpses of the city’s past.
Don’t be fooled by its name – the forty year old ‘Old Market’ isn’t home to antiques. Instead, it’s full of food! Dozens of street vendors tempt locals with beloved local favourites like fresh spring rolls, green papaya salad, and Vietnamese savoury steamed rice cakes, just to name a few. Here, we’ll sample some authentic local appetizers, inhaling the spicy flavours of the street stalls, and watch as local life unfolds before your eyes in the heart of Saigon.
