Explore the tidbits and less known side of Saigon / Ho Chi Minh City and become a full-fledged “Saigonese”.
The best way to understand the culture and lifestyle of a different country is always by opening your mind and exploring all the different aspects of the cultural heritage. This includes trying out the food, visiting the local landmarks and engaging in local lifestyle directly. Indeed, this holds true even in Saigon, now known as Ho Chi Minh City. What best way to be a “Saigonese” than by experiencing life in the shoe of a local? As an extra, you will also be able to be up close and personal with the road while you travel on the bike. Experience the winding road, the secret nook and cranny around the city and the touch of the wind as you make your way around the block and onto your next destination.
Your journey starts with a visit to the Thich Quang Duc statue. Learn more about his history and the historical significance of his protest and eventual sacrifice that highlighted the persecution of Buddhist by the South Vietnamese government in days of yore - all for the sake of justice. After the inspiring story, head to the Ho Thi Ky flower market, one of the biggest flower market in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) and enjoy the arrangement and assortment of beautiful flowers up for sale. The colourful market is sure to energise you with the motivation to explore even more.
Then, it is off to China Town where most of the Chinese people resides in Ho Chi Minh City. Here, you will visit the famous Binh Tay market and the Thien Hau Temple. Experience firsthand the liveliness of the market and the serenity of the temple as you go around and check out every corner of the two places. Then, we will head for a traditional dinner at a special restaurant on District 5. It is time to calm down that rumbling tummy before we continue. Of course, a mere dinner is nearly enough so we have also arranged for you a wonderful coffee time on a boat trip. Enjoy the drink and music as you dance through the evening.
Afterwards, you will head to Thu Thiem tunnel where you will try out the different street food and admire the beautiful tunnel. Be sure to snap lots of picture so as to keep it in your memory. When all is done, we will take you back to your hotel and you can retreat for the evening.
