Saigon City Tour
USD42 or VND990,000 per person
An insightful, fun-filled and informative ride about sightseeing, history, society and life in Saigon. The ride is focused on both famous attractions and unseen areas Saigon has to offer. The goal of this Saigon motorbike city tour is to give you a very general view of the city, the difference among districts, from the poorest slums, to the touristy, poshest areas. Narrow alleyways, busy market streets and same-stuff-selling roads will be slowly shown on our way. This tour will pass through 10 districts of the city, allowing you to see as much of Saigon as you can.
To start the tour, we will drive past and let you see all the famous attractions like the Notre Dame, Central Post Office, Independence Palace, City Hall, the Opera House, Ben Thanh Market… Our drivers and guides will point out and give you information of the attractions you are looking at on the way as we go. We WON’T stop at or go inside these attractions however. As the concept of this City Tour is to give you a very general view of Saigon (sightseeing, life, culture, society and cuisine…) and the difference among districts, there will be a lot of driving (through 10 districts). If we stop to go inside the attractions, we won’t have enough time to cover all the other things.
Though we focus more on the sights on this City Tour, we still want to introduce to you our local cuisine. The first part of the tour is followed by an authentic, delicious meal Saigon has to offer. Breakfast for the Morning Tour, lunch for the Afternoon Tour or dinner for the Night Tour. So, we advise you to skip breakfast at your hotel if you are taking the Morning Tour as we really, really want to try a tasty dish that is only available in the early morning.
Then we will head to Cholon (Saigon’s China Town) after our meal. On the way there, we will pass and see many interesting things like flower market, pet street, ghost towers, wet market, lantern street, Chinese medicine quarter… and the highlight is Binh Tay Market – the biggest and oldest market in Saigon. We will stop a little for us to rest after a long ride and to try some local snack in China Town.
Korean Town, a posh area in Saigon, will be our last stop on this tour. There, you can see how the rich people live and how different it is from the other parts of the city that we have seen.
Please note that as some attractions are closed at night, itinerary of the Night City Tour is a little different from the day ones.
