All these activities are popular for the local people in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). This will enrich your experience of your day in Saigon.
Just spend a day a little earlier morning in Saigon, drawn on the suggestions below, you will have a clear experience of the living rhythm of Saigon.
You should wake up early in the morning to start at 7:30 am (or your choice of time). This is the ideal time frame to enjoy the fresh air in Saigon. The cars now also absent and the area has fresh air.
We will enjoy breakfast along the streets of Saigon. Many local dishes are displayed for eaters with hot rolls, a bowl of noodles or broken rice. We will stop at a famous noodle soup – Pho Saigon to taste the famous noodle of Vietnam.
Most of Saigon people are very friendly and cheerful. Sometimes, sellers or workers chat with visitors about the daily experience, it creates little joy to those who first arrived in Saigon.
After breakfast, you go to a cafe shop and enjoy a cup of coffee (Saigon coffee with condensed milk and ice). In Saigon, there are many small cafes with crowded people. Flavorful coffee is mixed with the bitter taste, that’s great to taste.
If you notice the style of the local, many people like to sit facing the streets to look at the life and traffic with tasting coffee; or some people read the newspapers. Many local people spend a long time for the morning passing. But, we will move to some book stores to find some books or a disc of orchestral music.
We come to the market Ben Thanh to explore the busy business of daily life of Saigon people. The market takes very important roles in the life of the local because of their habit of shopping. The market is very colorful.
At the lunch time, we can treat ourselves with the local disks of broken rice – Com Tam. The broken rice dish is simple but famous in the Southern region with very special flavor. Made from small broken rice in the milling process, the people cook them and combine them with many different ingredients to create a flavorful disk.
In the afternoon, we can walk along the busy streets in the center. The area is good to walk along the streets such as Nguyen Hue, Ham Nghi, Le Loi, Le Thanh Ton or other roads. You will see a lot of beautiful souvenirs of time to visit. You can also get around the big center or come to the front of the tallest building in Saigon. Walking is not a boring activity; it will help you look at things slow down.
It’s also nice for another option to sit on a cyclo ride – pedicab for moving slowly, that is really nice.
If you are a shopper, you should try to look at Taka Plaza Saigon Square or on Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Street, District 1. It is known as the bustling shopping district. Just know little skill to bargain, you will buy the perfect outfit for a reasonable rate.
