Itinerary

Experience daily life in Vietnam’s largest Chinatown and come away with a much greater appreciation of the fascinating culture in this ethnic enclave. As you will discover while walking the back streets and alleyways of Cholon, as Chinatown is known locally, much has remained the same since its founding more than 100 years ago. Many of the temples are Buddhist and watching artisans create Buddhist amulets and statues will give you an insight into how the religion is practiced.

You will also visit a colorful Chinese pagoda for a different perspective of Chinatown’s spiritual side. Cholon means “big market,” so it is only natural that you will browse one of the most bustling markets. You can expect to see every product imaginable, from lacquerware to fresh produce to medicinal herbs. It will be quite the experience and well worth discussing over a cup of coffee in one of Chinatown’s most popular cafés.
