Full description
Meet your guide to take a ride in the lively, bustling Saigon traffic, while you chat with the informative and caring tour guides to learn more about the local life of this vibrant city. Get to know the city by visiting its famous landmarks, existing since the French colonial time. See the Opera House, City Hall, the Central Post Office, and Notre Dame Cathedral. Jump back on your bike and enjoy the breeze as you head to a popular temple in Saigon’s history. Take a short walk to the wet market down the street for cooling drinks and snacks. Drive through the traffic to Thich Quang Duck memorial park and Ho Thi Ky wholesale flower market. Here, you can see how locals live and work before heading down to the diverse China Town area. Drive on East-West Roadway and see Saigon's poorest area, the Saigon floating area, and the canal system. Stop at a local restaurant to try different kinds of food (depending on your itinerary and your interest, your tour guide will take you to a restaurant that's sure to please, and where dietary restrictions can be catered to). Before heading back to your hotel, take a short drive along to Saigon River and Bach Dang pier, into a new city in District 2 and Thu them tunnel, a nice way to wrap up the tour.
