Saigon's Secret Alleys, Vietnam

This tour of Saigon’s alleys will give you an authentic insight into the daily lives of those that reside and work in this particular district of the city. Exploring the narrow passageways brings you close to the local residential area, the market with its vibrant display of fresh produce and bustling activity and aromas from a variety of street food stalls. This is a fascinating place to observe the local way of doing business and exchanging news. The tour finishes at a previously covert location that was used during the war to store weapons. This small house was a hiding place for weapons of Viet Cong Commandos from "Team 5" in readiness for the Tet Offensive on 30 January 1968. It was recognised as a national historical site in 1988.
