A trip to the city slums may be an unusual way to spend your day, but this immersive half day tour to the less traveled roads of Ho Chi Minh will open your eyes to a different side of the bustling city. Choose between a morning or afternoon time slot, and take off from your hotel together with your guide and driver on a local motorbike. You'll first make your way around the busy city center before heading off to the nearby slums. There, you'll get the chance to fully observe the difference in lifestyle and conditions of those in the less developed communities, compared to those living in the urban areas as you go. Along the tour, you'll get to immerse yourself among locals living in the slums around and beyond the city, and see makeshift houses along the Saigon river and the floating market, as well as slum areas being built or torn down. Your last stop of the tour will find you at the charity food stall and see where the locals can purchase cheap meals at VND2,000. By the end of the tour, you'll have gained a better understanding of the slum communities, and maybe even a broadened perspective on the way of life of the people that comprise it.
