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.
