    Scooter Saigon Tour
    Stop: 4 hours -
    Our talented guide with the motorbike picks you up at your hotel (or any location requested by you). After a short talk about the tour program and making sure you are ok on the motorbike, we weave around the main streets and narrow alleyways to see a lots of must-see attractions, local markets, and many interesting things of the city. Firstly, we stop at tourist attractions in District 1 including Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral and Saigon Central Post Office. Head to Thich Quang Duc Memorial where you listen to the mysterious story about the unburned heart. Then we drive to Nguyen Thien Thuat apartment building since the 1960s to learn more about the real local life which is totally different from what you see in the city center. After that, we drive to Ho Thi Ky - the biggest wholesale flower market and Cambodian market hidden in alleyways to see thousands of colorful flowers and many strange things. We stop at an 80-year coffee shop hidden in an alley to learn how to make "Vot" coffee, interact with the nice owner, enjoy a drink and chat leisurely with your guides as friends. Arriving in China Town in District 5, we visit Binh Tay Market, Thien Hau Temple and have a drive around brilliant gems including fashion street, painting street, medicine street, electronic market, fabric market, lantern market, fruit market, bird market. On the way, we have 3 food stops. At the first stop, we visit one of Saigon's best Banh mi shops, see how they make a great Vietnamese sandwich, buy one and eat it while sipping a drink at the coffee shop like locals. At the second food stop which is an over 30-year-old food stall selling Grilled banana in sticky rice and banana leaf. We eat crispy Vietnamese pancake and Rice noodles with grilled pork/fried roll at a 30-year-old restaurant. The guide not only tells you how to eat but also shows you how skillful chefs cook the foods. The guide returns you to the hotel. It is time to say goodbye, tour ends but memories last forever.
