Itinerary: Binh Dong Harbor – Jade Emperor Temple – Local Market – City twilight and night

  • 5:00 am: start the tour with guide pickup at hotel or your given place then transfer to Binh Dong Harbor. There is going to be a brief history of this part of the town before the sun goes up behind the blocks of houses. A small river in the foreground offers a reflection of the houses on the water. Everything will appear magnificent in your photos.
  • 7:00 am: Stop by China town for local street life photos then get back to the hotel for breakfast and rest.
  • 10:00 am: go to Jade Emperor Temple, another typical example of religious architecture in Saigon.
  • At about 11 am, when the temple is crowded with visitors, lots of incense is burned. Ventilation windows are opened up for incense smoke to come out. Sun rays then come in through the windows on the ceiling.
  • You should take pictures in the main hall and Điện DiêmVương (Chamber of King of Hell).
  • 12:00 noon: Lunch at a local restaurant. Back to the hotel to rest or explore the city on your own.
