Overview
Travel to hidden corners and ride through the less traveled roads of Saigon like a local and discover more about the history, culture, and lifestyle of Ho Chi Minh. On a half day tour aboard a scooter, you'll first make your way to the Ho Thi Ky flower market, where most of the city's flowers - as well as those in the surrounding areas all the way to the borders leading to Cambodia - are bought and sold. Then, make your way to the The Venerated Thich Quang Duc Monument to get to know about the monk who set himself on fire as a sign of protest against the persecution of Buddhists in Vietnam. Spend some time passing by the motorbike accessories market and the fabric town before stopping for a quick break to enjoy Banh Xeo (Vietnamese pancake), then heading to your last stop in the tour - the Xom Chieu market, buzzing with vendors selling a large selection of goods for you to consume and enjoy. At the end of your tour, you'll be safely dropped back at your hotel.

This was a great way to explore the city, highly recommended for anyone visiting HCMC. My guide was very knowledgeable and answered many questions and showed so many interesting places that you wouldn’t normally explore simply b/c you never knew about it.

Tran & My are wonderful tour guides. As we’ve been to HCM before, they tailored our trip for us and we had the most amazing experience. Whether you’ve ridden before or not, you feel safe and confident - yes even in the craziness of HCM! Do yourself a favour and book this tour!
