Full description
Your cyclo tour will cover various highlights of Ho Chi Ming, starting with Ho Thi Ky. This is considered the biggest flower market in town, and is known as the Langbiang Plateau (famously located in Dalat) of HCM City. From there you will visit the pet market, before continuing on to the Ba Hat Market, where Saigonese people can buy fresh food and fruit. From there, you will visit the Nhat Tao Market, where many skilled electronic technicians can make old PCs and TVs into new to sell to the poor in the southwestern region. The Tan Thanh Market is next, where you can find all kinds of motorcycle parts. Soai Kinh Lam Market is a big fabric market, with nearly 500 stalls which sell silks, suit material, cotton for shirts, and material for curtains, corduroy, tartans, and denim. You'll then visit the Binh Tay Market, which was built as per western architecture but with bold Chinese influence. This market sells only wholesale goods. Following that, the Kim Bien Market has commodities such as telephones accessories, computers, sunglasses, cosmetics, toys, labor-protective clothing, and industry chemicals. You'll finally visit the Thien Hau Pagoda, which is a Chinese-style temple located on Nguyễn Trãi Street in Cho Lon (Chinatown).
