Gay Saigon Stopover Tour
We can show you the best of Saigon in a day. This short-stay Saigon highlights program is designed for visitors with limited time or returning guests who want to quickly settle into Ho Chi Minh City's vibrant celebration of life. Your Purple Dragon Pioneered guide will conduct you around the city, with special emphasis on must-see attractions and popular or newly-opened entertainment venues.
Day One: Just Arrive--We Do The Rest
Your whirlwind adventure in Saigon begins when our guide greets you at the airport. Unless you arrive early in the morning, the remaining time on this day and evening are free for you to see and be seen. The afternoon is yours to enjoy on your own. Why not hunt for bargains in cavernous Ben Thanh, Vietnam's largest public market. Tonight, our evening guide gives you a taste of nightlife Saigon style.
Our basic Short Stay Saigon Highlights package includes two nights in your choice of LGBTQ-friendly hotel, airport transportation, a full day of sightseeing with one of our great private gay tour guides, and a nightlife adventure. Simply wonderful! Because this is not a group tour, you get the guide's undivided attention and he will tailor your program to fit our interests.
Day Two: A Whirlwind of Sightseeing
Enjoy an early breakfast before you begin a flurry of sightseeing with your private guide around Saigon. After a visit to the History Museum you pass the site of the now-demolished wartime American Embassy and on to Reunification Palace. Later, you visit Notre Dame Cathedral, Saigon's French colonial post office and then the War Crimes Museum. After a noodle stop, continue to Cho Lon, Ho Chi Minh City's Chinatown, crammed with fascinating temples and mysterious, narrow lanes to explore. The market here is older than Ben Thanh, and nearly as large. Your guide will gladly help you negotiate for treasures. You are free tonight to dine with a new friend or step out onto one of Saigon's jam-packed dance floors.
Day Three: Down Time Until Departure
Your morning is at leisure until it is time for us to deliver you to the airport for your departure flight, but why not extend your stay and enjoy optional side trips in Saigon, Sapa, Hanoi and Halong Bayor the ancient wonders of Hue and Hoi An.
