5. Discover Saigon's Local Sites and Culture by Motorbike
Start by being picked up by your motorbike driving guide for a morning, afternoon or evening tour and get ready to discover the cultures of the Vietnamese people on the back of a motorbike, like a true local. Begin the tour visiting the venerable Thich Quang Duc Monument. Then continue to District 3, the oldest district of Saigon, where you will visit an old apartment to see the local life of Vietnamese people and their daily activities.
Make a stop at a local coffee shop to enjoy a typical Vietnamese coffee or coconut. Continue to the biggest flower market in Saigon before heading to China Town in District 5 and venture around ghost buildings, a motorbike market, a pet market, an electronic market and a Chinese medicine market. Afterwards, visit a typical Chinese temple.
The tour will lead you to a floating market, a small version of the Mekong Delta in Saigon. Witness the slum areas and old mafia area in districts 4 and 7. To keep your strength, fill your stomach with a special and amazing dish. Finally, drive through the Saigon River Tunnel in District 2, the new urban area in Saigon and enjoy the spectacular scenes of District 1.
At the end of the tour, before being dropped off at your hotel, receive a special Vietnamese gift from your guide.
