City & Street Food Tour
USD100 ~ VND2,500,000 per person
A 6-hour motorbike tour combining our Street Food Tour and Sightseeing Tour with our gay-friendly drivers and guides, which assures with you a very good flavor of the city’s sightseeing, history, life, culture, cuisine and MORE. This tour is where you can have the fullest adventure of Saigon, through its changes from day to the night.
Starting the tour, we will drive past and let you see all the famous attractions like the Notre-Dame Cathedral, Saigon Central Post Office, Reunification Palace, City Hall, the City Opera House, Ben Thanh Market… Our drivers and guides will point out and give you information of the sights you are looking at on the way while we go. We WON’T stop at or go inside these sights, however. As the goal of this City Tour is to give you a very general view of Ho Chi Minh City (sightseeing, life, culture, society and cuisine…) and the difference among areas, there will be a lot of driving (through no less than 7 districts). If we stop to go inside each sight, we won’t have enough time to show you all the other things.
Though this motorbike City Tour focuses more on the sights, we hope we can somehow introduce to you our local culinary delicacies. The first part of the tour is followed by an authentic, delightful meal Saigon has to offer. Breakfast on the Morning Tour, lunch on the Afternoon Tour or dinner on the Night Tour. So, we advise you to skip breakfast at your hotel, or save room for food, if you are taking the Morning Tour as we really, really want to try a tasty dish that is only available for a few hours in the early morning.
Then we will head to Cholon (Ho Chi Minh City’s China Town) after our meal. On the way we go, you can see many interesting things like flower market, furniture street, pet street, ghost towers, wet market, chemical market, lantern street, Chinese medicine quarter… and the highlight is Binh Tay Market – the biggest and oldest market in Ho Chi Minh City. We will stop a little for us to rest after a long ride and to try some local snack in China Town.
Nap Ham, a hidden hang-out area for the young people in Ho Chi Minh City, will be our final stop on this tour. There, you can have an amazing view of the city, see how the rich people live and how different it is from the other parts of the city that we have seen.
More than that, we will together have five different local food stops (4 stops for savories and 1 for desserts) for the part of the food tour. At each place, we will have a few dishes and we will have over 10 dishes total. Our meals will be spread out along the way as we go such that we have enough time to digest all the food.
***We have food options for vegan/vegetarian guests. We make sure you will enjoy the tour as much as our meat-eating guests.***
