Eat your way through Ho Chi Minh City – formerly Saigon – and taste the best street food at night! Meet your English-speaking guide at 06:00 pm, and climb on the back of a bike to immerse yourself in the crazy traffic. Join thousands of other motorbikes as you ride the Saigon streets and your driver takes you through notable neighborhoods, including District 3 where the Saigon locals live.
Stop to enjoy some banh xeo (South and Central rice pancakes), and learn how they are made from a chef with over 20 years experience before riding down Saigon hidden alleyways, where you will encounter old apartment buildings. Go on a short adventure to climb up to the top of some old buildings and see the contrasting architecture between modern and authentic Saigon. You can even visit a local pagoda which was built inside an old apartment by a female monk. Visit the biggest Ho Thi Ky night flower market and soak up the wonderful bouquets. Take a short walk around the area, and get a special gift from your guide.
Next, drive to District 5 and pass Tran Phu street famous for its oil paintings. Stop at a local restaurant to savor some Bún Chả (grilled pork with noodles, Hanoi style), known as “Obama Noodles” after President Obama and Anthony Bourdain tried them in 2016!
Venture into District 10, where the city’s street food scene really thrives. Excite your taste buds with a heavenly dish of coconut ice cream at a shop established in 1975. Watch as the owner prepares some coconut ice cream right before your eyes.
Take a spin around the city for enticing views of the night life, and experience the hustle and bustle of fashion street. Squeeze through narrow alleyways that cars can’t access, and journey along the banks of the Saigon River with a welcoming breeze.
End your food and motorbike tour in District 4, where is known as the best street food location in Ho Chi Minh city and enjoy a seafood meal of 3 different dishes and an authentic food challenge! Try some balut (boiled, fertilized egg) if you dare, and tuck into a nice dessert of flan cake with caramel, coffee and coconut milk. Wash it all down with some special beer, soft drinks, mineral water or homemade Vietnamese sticky rice wine.
