BEN THANH MARKET DISCOVERY CHALLENGE TOUR
Explore the famous Ben Thanh Market in a unique way on the “Discovery Challenge” tour!
In the spirit of an old fashioned “Treasure Hunt”, you will be given a list with a series of tasks and puzzles to solve. Interact with locals and learn history along the way. A bit of knowledge will be needed to succeed: a few Vietnamese words, traditions and day-to-day local habits. It is easy! Just ask a local. At the end of the tour, your guide will be waiting for you at a pre-determined meeting point where you can have a café sua da. Compare answers and see how you did! A new way to visit Ben Thanh: educational, adventurous and fun!
Approximate length: 2 hours
Hotel pick up and transfer to the market’s entrance, the starting point of the Discovery Challenge Tour. Depending on the size of the group, you will divide into a number of small teams with your guide’s assistance. Your guide will explain the Ben Thanh Discovery Challenge tour and give each team an “itinerary” that explores the busy alleys of the market.
Challenges to complete will give you a good insight into the Vietnamese markets as well as an opportunity to interact with locals. Find the missing words of a local recipe, buy fruits of different colors and remember their Vietnamese names, take a picture of different souvenirs representing North, South and Centre of Vietnam, etc. Take photos, solve puzzles, meet locals, taste local food. At the end of the tour, meet your guide and the other teams and share your adventure stories. Transfer back to your hotel.
