GOOD MORNING SAIGON BY SIDECAR ( 2 HRS )
As you know , French came to Saigon in 1859 . And they wanted to re- built Saigon into a little Paris, a pearl of South East Asia . For this trip ,we not only take you to follow the steps of French instructions , but also give you a special moment to discover another face of Saigon , without the traffics and heat .
- 6am : Be ready early and get on board .The first place will be the Nha Rong harbor ( 1863 ) ,where President Ho Chi Minh boarded on the ship "Latouche Treville Admiral" for a long journey to find out a solution to liberate the country , on the 5th Jun 1911. Nha Rong was formerly the representative office of the French Maritime Transport Company .
Passing the city Zoo you can see an over 300 years old part of Saigon , where French wanted to reserve it as the city’s lung .
Next, a photo stop at one of the most famous building in Viet nam –Reunification palace (1873). It was called Norodom Palace – by the name of Cambodia King . From 1873 to 1887, the palace was used by the French Governor of Cochinchina . The recent building was rebuilt in 1966 and still remains nicely with a long and interesting history , you'll be told while taking picture .
