Saigon Street Food Walking Night Tour (D)

Pick up from your hotel at 5:30 pm before continuing by vehicle to the starting point of the Saigon street food walking tour. The first stop is a public park where local people enjoy some dancing exercises. They gather here when the sun goes down to socialize and dance together. It is up to you to dance with them or just watch. We will sit down with the Saigon locals and sample street food called “Bo Bia Spring Rolls” and “Papaya Salad with dried beef” which are sold in front of the park.

Then, after a short walk, try your second meal of the Saigon street eats evening. “Banh xeo” is a large rice pancake filled with vegetables, shrimps and pork. Hidden in a small alley, this local street restaurant has become very famous and serves some of the best “banh xeo” of Saigon.

The third stop is a Saigon street food place located near Tan Dinh Market. There, enjoy a delicious local soup, inspired by Chinese recipes. After another short walk, it is time for a tasty “Com Tam”, a local dish from Saigon city with rice and pork ribs.

Having sampled the savoury side of the city, cross a busy city intersection- an adventure in and of itself! – to a typical Vietnamese café and indulge in a sweet treat. Round out the evening with a stop at a live music café. Rub elbows with the locals while listening to Vietnamese music then return to the hotel full of memories of this authentic night out (around 09:00 pm).

Note: places are subjected to change upon availability. Another tour option is to taste a selection of different types of Vietnamese favourites from tasty banh mi baguettes, noodle dishes and flamed grilled barbecue skewers, maybe even rice paper pizza! End the night with dessert from one of Saigon’s best little place for sweet soups.


Note: the tour is offered on a join in basis, so there may be other guests joining you on the tour. Our maximum group size is 8 people. For guests that do not want to go in a group, we also offer a private tour option for an extra charge.

    A Highlight of our 15 day trip

    We booked the Ho Chi Minh private food tour for two people. Joseph is a great guide and we enjoyed a lot the tour. We visited very interesting places that we had never found by ourselves, and we tasted super delicious food. He could answer all of our questions and we had many. It was definitely a highlight in our trip and we strongly recommend it to everybody.

    Fantastic walking street food tour in Saigon

    This Saigon walking street food tour was absolutely brilliant, one of the best things we have done so far. Thao was really friendly, approachable and had so much knowledge about the food and the city. She really took us off the tourist track and we went to local places and tried local foods which we would never have found ourselves. She was able to personalize the tour (I am vegetarian and my boyfriend isn’t) and it was just the two of us on the tour.

    The food was incredible, we tried 20 different things! All of the places we went were local businesses and we ate alongside locals, didn’t see another tourist for the entire evening. We had the opportunity to make some of the food ourselves in the stalls, and Thao sent us some great recommendations for the next place we are going (Hoi An). We would absolutely recommend, and Thao is just the best!
