This was an incredible tour. Would give 6 stars if I could. AK was a wonderful tour guide and expertly relayed both historical and cultural information about Saigon/Ho Chi Minh and Vietnam more generally. He also showed us a number of spots off the beaten track that gave us an even more intimate insight into life in Saigon. A really lovely guy with so much amazing information to share. Excellent tour. Thank you AK!

Best Free Tours in Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam, in the south of the country. Renamed after the Vietnam War, some locals still refer to the city as Saigon, especially in relation to the tourist center. This action-packed city has all but let go of its war torn past only one generation ago, and is now a bustling metropolis, getting larger, more modern and more expensive every day. So, Free Walking Tours in Ho Chi Minh City are a sure way to introduce you to the main attractions and hidden gems of the city with a guide. Join a Free Saigon City Tour to focus on history and see French colonial architecture. In a Free Legends and Tales Walking Tour, you will get a deeper understanding of the culture with legends, myths and true stories. Of course, a Shopping City Tour of Ho Chi Minh is ideal for fashion lovers, and will take you from Dong Khoi Street to Cho Ben Than market.

Highlights of a Free Tour in Ho Chi Minh City

All Free Tours in Ho Chi Minh City will for sure take you to the spectacular Jade Emperor Pagoda, one of the most important Taoist temples of the country. After burning some incense sticks, head to the Ben Thanh Market. This is the bustling market where thousands of people go to buy clothes, jewelry, food or the popular local coffee. Don’t forget to bargain about the prices! Not too far away, you can find the Bitexco Financial Tower, where the famous 360-degree view of Saigon Skydeck is located. Additionally, if you want to understand the dramatic impact of the war in the country, a visit to the War Remnants Museum and the Cu Chi tunnels (70 km away from the city) is an absolute must. Finally, if you love architecture, do not miss the Notre-Dame Cathedral of Saigon, built in 1883, the Central Post Office, and Reunification Palace (also known as Independence Palace).

Things to Do in Ho Chi Minh City

For a fun introduction to Vietnam, join Ho Chi Minh City Free Walking Tours and spend half a day exploring temples, pagodas, hidden streets and boutiques and then go to Dam Sen Water Park. This city center water park has some excellent if a bit treacherous water slides, and a new one is built every year. For the faint of heart there are also some animatronic dinosaurs and a restaurant in the park. There are also other water parks further from the center: Water world (District 9), Ocean Water Park (District 7) and Dai The Gioi Water Park (District 5). After this experience, do as the locals do and visit a hair salon. You will soon understand why the Vietnamese have developed a worldwide reputation for styling hair and nails. Finally, Ho Chi Minh City is famous for its coffee, pho (traditional Vietnamese noodle soup) and pork rolls, so go to a family restaurant to taste them!
