Tour Saigon, Vietnam by motorbike

One-day itinerary: Saigon Culture and Culinary Experience by Motorbike

Country: Vietnam

1 Day

Saigon, Vietnam: Saigon is a vibrant and bustling city. Relax as you sit behind your trusty motorbike driver for a journey where you can combine some of the classic historical highlights the city has to offer (Reunification Palace, museums, pagodas, Cho Lon, etc.) with getting a real insight into local life behind the main streets.

Meet and chat with local people, try special local cuisine at the different locations you stop by and learn about daily life. Get to know Saigon with a refreshing twist to suit your culinary and cultural tastes. Our guides are the experts, and they will discuss the plan for the time with you in advance so that you get the very best experience designed just for you. Please note helmets will be provided.

Your guide and driver will transfer you to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Mai. The stories of Vietnamese history and culture can be heard and understood through its traditional music. Mr. Truc and Mrs. Ngo (husband and wife) are experts at playing the melodious traditional Vietnamese musical instruments (monochord zither, bamboo xylophone, stone lithophone and more) and have been granted special permission to share their knowledge with guests in Vietnam.

For an hour you will be taken on a journey back in time. Hear the instruments played and learn about the stories they tell, then you will have a chance to have a go at playing some of the instruments yourself. At the end of your time with these wonderful people you will have had a unique personal insight in to Vietnam.
