Saigon Tour (Ho Chi Minh City)

An Oasis In The Hustle And Bustle

Discover our
Saigon Tour

Ho Chi Minh City Tour (formerly Saigon and still fondly called that by many) is a sometimes dizzying mix of old and new, with uniquely Asian and international architectural styles. Older tree-lined streets cherished with a vaguely French atmosphere contrast with the multi-story buildings and office blocks which show the city’s almost futuristic side. This city has a lot to offer, such as the Giac Lam Pagoda (dating from 1744) and the Giac Vien Pagoda (founded about 200 years ago). The Notre Dame Cathedral, which was built between 1877 and 1883, is the most famous of the French-era churches in and around the city. With bustling streets, a wealth of restaurants and whitewashed trees, it is perfect for days of sightseeing, afternoons shopping and evenings spent enjoying a sunset drink at a rooftop bar or on a cruise on the Saigon River.

Travel Guide

1. Where is Saigon?

Saigon, also well-known as Ho Chi Minh City, is the biggest and most populous city in Vietnam, located in the Southeast of the country. Saigon is a part of the lowland Southern Vietnam, which includes Bà Rịa–Vũng Tàu, Bình Dương, Bình Phước, Đồng Nai, Tây Ninh.
Saigon is the heart of all business and financial center in Vietnam, so there is no doubt about the country’s modernization style. In addition, Saigon is one of the top cities worth a discovery during your trip to Vietnam 
 

It is well-known that the weather in Saigon is split into two totally different seasons: wet and dry. Of course tourists are advised to attend tours in Saigon that take place during the dry season because - well, no one wants to be all wet and muddy. 
The dry season starts from early December to late April with sunshine and moderate humidity, very suitable for traveling around and discover a new land. Each year, the city has approximately 150 rainy days, starting from  May to November, especially in June and September.
 

Generally, Vietnam is one of the safest places on this planet to travel, in contrast to some doubt. The UNESCO has recognized Vietnam as a new “destination for the new millennium". Therefore, you can wipe out all your worries about traveling here.
However, foreign tourists should be patient and use common sense to avoid incidences of personal misfortune like in any other tourist attractions in this world.
 

Vietnam, in general, is a safe destination for families with young kids to travel for a holiday. However, if you are heading for Saigon, do take note that the city is very hot and humid. Therefore, you should bring proper clothing, mosquito spray, hats, sun cream, etc. Should you have more worry, have some medicine packed with you.
 

No disability should prevent people from traveling and discovering new lands. And I think is safe to say that Vietnam is totally a wheelchair-friendly country. 
Vietnam’s tourism really cares about tourists with disabilities that these days, there are more and more choices or resources for them to have the trip of their life. Most major hotels in Vietnam’s large cities can accommodate travelers with wheelchairs. But if you go to hotels in rural areas, this kind of service may be off the limit.
Luxury Tour can provide all travellers with our customized trip to suit each customer's requirement. With our 100% tailor-made vacations, you can wipe out all your worries and enjoy your vacation at its finest.
Any disabilities should be informed to us as the booking is made so that your Saigon trip can be perfectly planned according to your preference and health condition.
 

If you want to ease your mind by escaping the bustling metropolis of Ho Chi Minh, here is a list of beautiful places near Saigon that you can have a day trip to.

Cu Chi Tunnel

This is one of the easiest day trips from Saigon for those who prefer short tie travel. Just an hour and a half ride from the city center, tourists can witness the significance and unique features of the infamous Cu Chi Tunnel, utilized by Viet Cong military during the Vietnam War. This specialized tunnel connecting Cu Chi and Saigon used to be a nightmare to all the opposing forces at that time. Spread out like a matrix, this famous historical tunnel cover around 250 kilometers. 

Can Tho (Mekong Delta area)

It takes only 3 hours for tourists to travel to Can Tho from Saigon. Can Tho is a modern city with flashy restaurants, hotels and tourist attractions. And yet, you can still find the vintage and touches of the old, simple Vietnam in the structures of houses, in the floating market that should not be missed by anyone.

Ho Tram

113 kilometers away from the bustling city, tourists can find themselves on a beautiful beach with sunshine and fresh coconut juice everywhere. This is, no lie, the cleanest beach tourists can find on a day trip from Ho Chi Minh city.
Ho Coc beach 
This is a quiet, mostly unpopulated beach where locals go to find some peace of mind for their own. The u-shaped coastline here overlooks the forest, and near those places, tourists can find some food stalls and restaurants of locals’, serving fresh and delicious seafood and beer.

Scorpion Island

Going to this island is quite an experience for some people since you have to buy tickets to travel by ferry to cross the river. This is a truly interesting thing to do since not many people can experience being carried by a noisy ferry, sit on your motorbikes with a bunch of Vietnamese locals and watch the scenery of a modern city fading, making a place for the evergreen forest, rice paddles bamboo villages.

Can Gio (Monkey Island)

Just over 70 kilometers away from Ho Chi Minh City, Can Gio is truly the most convenient day trip from there. Some people call Can Gio “Monkey Island” for the fact that this place is recognized by UNESCO for its biodiversity with hundreds of wildlife and indigenous vegetation. So if you are a nature lover, and not afraid of monkey (there are a lot of monkeys on this Island and I have to say, they are quite familiar with tourists so they may want to approach you for food), this place is just a place for you!
 

War Remnants Museum

This is a quite special museum in Saigon with details of how a 30-year war between Vietnam and the USA has affected this S-shaped country. There are also tanks, damaged planes and other War weapons that are preserved for the exhibition. Tourists will be mind-blown with written letters, information and presentation of the War, seeing how a small, poor country regain their independence after 3 decades.

Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theatre

For those who love the culture, The Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theater is an ideal place to visit. The water puppet shows in Vietnam is very unique and all age-appropriate. You can book a Saigon tour with Luxury Travel and enjoy the show here: https://luxurytravelvietnam.com/inquire

Thien Hau Temple, Chinatown

This famous Temple is a Buddhist temple, dedicated to the goddess of the Sea, Mazu. Due to Vietnam’s geography with long coastlines, this goddess plays an important role in the Vietnamese culture, since she is the one protecting ships and fishermen while they are on the sea. This temple is also known as one of the most beautiful temples in Vietnam, so you should give it a go!

Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica of Saigon 

The Cathedral was built in the late 19s by the French colonists and named after the statue “Peaceful Notre Dame”. It is one of the very few remaining structures of Catholicism in Vietnam, where most of the population are Buddhist. An interesting rumor about this Cathedral is, the Virgin Mary statue in front of it is believed to shred tear in October 2005. Today, many come to this religious place with the hope of witnessing a miracle.

Saigon Opera House

Another famous colonial building in Saigon is the Saigon Opera House, located at the cross on Le Loi Street, near the classic Central Post Office. It is a three-floor Opera house with a capacity of 800 seats. Built-in 1897, this stage is not only for Opera artists to perform, but many other kinds of arts have the chance, too, namely ballets, musical concerts, traditional play, dance, etc.

Jade Emperor Pagodas

The Jade Emperor Pagoda is one of the most revered temples in Ho Chi Minh City. Originally built in 1909 by Chinese immigrants, this Taoist temple now welcomes Buddhist worshippers and is incredibly atmospheric with incense smoke hanging heavy in the air. Intricate architecture, carvings, statues of Gods and Goddesses and Chinese characters create an exotic and timeless ambiance.

Ben Thanh Market

Saigon is home to many famous markets. Centrally located, Ben Thanh and its surrounding streets comprise one of Saigon’s liveliest areas. Everything that’s commonly eaten, worn or used by the Saigonese is piled high, and souvenir items can be found in equal abundance. Vendors are determined and prices usually higher than elsewhere, so bargain vigorously and ignore any ‘Fixed Price’ signs. Good food stalls are usually open until mid-afternoon, and it’s an area where it pays to be extra vigilant about looking after personal items and smartphones.

Ho Chi Minh Reunification Palace

The center of the allied command and the place where the North Vietnamese claimed victory in the American War, the Reunification Palace has played its part in some incredible historic scenes. This palace has essentially been frozen in time since a North Vietnamese Army tank smashed through its gates in 1975. Visitors will get to discover secret rooms, grand reception halls and the command bunker where General Ngo Dinh Diem conducted his war strategies.

Ho Chi Minh City Central Post Office

The Central Post Office in Ho Chi Minh City is a glorious example of French colonial architecture, perfectly preserved with as much style as when it first opened in 1891. The building still functions as the city’s main post office and sending a letter or postcard home is highly recommended for a taste of living history. Beautiful from any angle, this building was designed by Gustave Eiffel, who also designed the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Reunification Palace

This place is seen as a symbol of Vietnam’s independence. The place gained its fame on the day a tank of the North Vietnamese Army hit its main gate, marking the end of a 30-year War - a claim to the whole world about the independence of Vietnam. Visiting here, tourists will have the chance to see hidden rooms, secret chambers with antique-look corridors, along with a beautiful tropical garden on the outside. 

Cu Chi Tunnels

Cu Chi Tunnels’ historical features set it apart from other modern landmarks in Saigon. There is no better way for tourists to experience how extreme and dangerous the Vietnam war is than the first-hand experience from visiting here. Foreigners will see how smart, creative Vietnamese people were in their war by turning their small built into an advantage in this war to defeat the tall, well-built and well-armed invaders. 
Visiting here, you will crawl through dark, narrow tunnels to reach all the underground facilities namely meeting room, kitchen, weapon storage. But, there will also traps and one-way-in with no-way-out tunnels.

War Remnants Museum

If you want more details about the infamous Vietnam War, there is no better place to go than the War Remnants Museum. This place has the most interesting exhibition and detailed documents about the French Domination period. Tourists will be shocked at all the war evidence displayed here and at how far Vietnamese people willing to take to gain their country back.
There are also themed rooms with photos of the war photojournalist Bun'yō Ishikawa, and thrilling preserved human fetus with the impact of Agent Orange.

Museum of Vietnamese History

This museum will show how different Vietnam is in periods of Vietnam's history, which is divided into two main parts: the Vietnamese history’s evolution from day one to the day the Vietnamese Communist Party was founded in 1930, and the other exhibits the cultural and ethnological aspects of several minority groups in the ancient Mekong Delta and Cham land. Tourists will also have the chance to witness the ancient Roman coins, stone tools, and cannons from Vietnam’s ethnic communities. 

Ho Chi Minh Museum – Dragon Wharf

The city is named after him, so of course, it has a museum dedicated to President Ho Chi Minh. Surprisingly, this place is built by the French in 1863 and is the place to show Uncle Ho’s items such as sandals, clothing, and spectacles. You will have the chance to see many photographs about him, to see how a young boy from a small family grows up into the nation’s greatest president
 

Giac Lam Pagoda 

This is the oldest pagoda in Saigon, recognized by the Ministry of Culture and Information as the national historical and cultural relic of Vietnam. Visiting here, tourists will be amazed by the complex of towers built in the 19th century. There are a total of 38 multi-sized towers, a balanced combination of the West and East style of architecture. This is also considered a historical place since it contains a lot of valuable historical and sculptural documents and items. With its long history, Vietnamese people believe that Giac Lam Pagoda is very sacred, therefore many Vietnamese people go here to burn the joss sticks to pray for every best wish. 

Vinh Nghiem Pagoda 

This is the tallest stone tower in Vietnam, built by a lot of skilled craftsmen. The pagoda was built in 2003, therefore its structure is an interesting mixture of traditional Vietnamese structures, with a light, modern touch of Japanese architecture style. This combination brings fame to this place, making it a popular destination for people who hope for a lucky and healthy life in the Lunar New Year's Eve. In the exam season, many students come here to wish for high scores and blessing.

Nam Thien Nhat Tru Pagoda

There is a fact that the South and North Vietnam are of two main different Buddhism branches. This place is built in 1958 in order for Buddhists in the South to come and worship. At first glance, you may realize that this place is somehow similar to the one pillar pagoda in the North with the same spirit: a blooming flower in the lake. Many travelers visit the pagoda to witness the beautiful lotus lake and its unique architecture. 

Jade Emperor Pagoda 

It is not an exaggeration to say that the Jade Emperor is one of the most famous pagodas in Saigon. The pagoda bears a strong impression of China’s culture with the decoration and the Yin Yang inspired roofs. There are 100 well-preserved statues in this pagoda, all of which are made of cartridge papers totally. Not only famous for its styles, but the shrine is also famous among the Vietnamese locals for their sacred fame, which brings hundreds of worshippers to come and pray with light candles and flowers. This is a very Instagramable place and famous among the photographers' community all over the world.

Cao Dai Temple

Cao Dai, also known as the Holy See, is the center of the Cao Dai faith - a Vietnam’s religion. It is the combination of teachings in Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, and Christianity, so the temple’s architecture is a gorgeous combination of a little mosque, a pagoda, and a cathedral. If you visit this place, do not miss watching the prayers of Caodainist practicing their rituals. Each Caodainist is dressed according to their role. For example, followers wear white while priests’ coat is in yellow, blue or red, symbolling Buddhism, Taoism, and Christianity respectively. Men will sit on the right while all women sit on the opposite.

Thien Hau Temple

Thien Hau Temple is reported to be built by Chinese immigrants from Guangzhou, which is the main reason why the architecture of this place reflects most Chinese features. Thien Hau or Lady of the Sea or Mazu is believed to be the protector of sailors and fishermen when they are on a cruise. There are legends and belief of Chinese decorated on the roofs, as long as many porcelain figurines. There are many Vietnamese people who take a tour to Saigon just to write their names on a red paper attached to each incense. Vietnamese people believe that the wish would follow the smoke of the incense to fly up to heaven, to the hand of God so that it will come true.
 

Street beer at Bui Vien - feel the busy and cross-cultural life

If you want other street experience aside from the walking street Nguyen Hue, we recommend Bui Vien street. This is also called “pho Tay”, which means “the street of the foreigners” since this place attracts travelers of all countries and nationalities with its cross-culture style. The beer that locals sell here is very famous and you can have that at a very reasonable price. A night out at Bui Vien street with friends or family members, munching on delicious Vietnamese snack with some beer here is the experience you should never miss. 

Classy cocktails at rooftop bars

If you love to see the whole city at night, do not miss the Ho Chi Minh City sky bar. There are plenty of sky bars you can try in this modern city, giving tourists a wide range of options: a vintage bar with mellow lounge music, or bar with a dance floor so customers can let loose after some shots. You can enjoy the view of Ho Chi Minh city in the sunset and at midnight, when the city is full of lightings. 

Jam to some live music

If you do not fancy the crowds, several coffee shops in Ho Chi Minh offers delicious drinks with live music - there is no better way to experience the life of a Vietnamese than that. You will have the chance to listen to almost everything, from trending pop music of famous Vietnamese singers to acoustic versions of Linkin Park’s albums.

Karaoke to let loose, why not?

I can’t think of any pastime activity that is more popular among Westerners than Karaoke, and trust me, Vietnamese takes Karaoke to a whole new level. You will find huge lounges, screaming luxury and royal. In the private room that customers book, you will find a large table full of fruits, finger food, and drinks of all kinds. The song list is very variated, too, from ABBA, Eminem to Kpop sensation BTS - it is all up to you. If you can’t find the song you want, you can ask the employers at that KTV and bam!

Wild nightclub in Saigon? You got it

And the “pho Tay” aka Bui Vien Street is considered the heart of it, with several bars with an impressive theme. And remember to dress accordingly because there is no way you are let in wearing flip-flops. Dress to impress - that’s what they say.
 

Canoeing in Saigon River 

Is canoeing exclusively in beach regions? I think not. Coming to the Saigon River, tourists will have the chance to experience a private canoe tour in the afternoon to watch the sunset or at any other times on the day. There will be luxury speed boat taking visitors to see the spectacular scene of Saigon safely and peacefully. According to a questionnaire from the locals, canoeing on Saigon River is one of the best water sports tourists can try here to unwind and chill.

If you went on a tour to Saigon Vietnam but haven’t tried at least 3 dishes of this list, chance are: You need to come back! Here are top food/cuisine you should try when visiting Saigon 
 
Bánh mì (banh mi)

Banh mi is a unique French-Vietnamese sandwich that you can buy and have a quick meal wherever you go. The dish consists of a toasted French baguette sandwich, pickled vegetables, pate, butter, and chilies or hot peppers. Banh mi can be eaten with a wide range of meat fillings, including roasted pork belly, fried egg, grilled pork loin or a flavored chicken

Bún bò Huế (bun bo Hue)

The dish is a popular Vietnamese noodle including big and thick rice vermicelli and beef with delicious broth made of pig’s bones. As you hear it from the name, this dish originated from Hue, but make it to Saigon and became a big hit ever since. If you have enough of Pho, Bun bo Hue is the perfect alternative with the lovely spicy flavor from lemongrass, cilantro, shrimp paste, and crab add-ons. 

Bún thịt nướng (bun thit nuong)

This dish is somehow similar to Bun Cha - a popular dish in Southern Vietnam. However, with a slight change in the cooking process and side dish, you will have cold rice-vermicelli noodles topped with grilled pork, all in one bowl. You can order extra nem nướng̣ or grilled prawns to eat this lovely dish to its full flavor.

Bánh xèo (Banh xeo)

If you observe the way people make it, you will see that this dish is somehow similar to a crepe or pancake with rice flour, coconut milk, turmeric, beef slices, shrimps, sliced onions, beansprouts, and mushrooms filling. 

Bánh tráng trộn (banh trang tron)

This Vietnam mixed rice paper is a relatively recent Vietnamese dish which is very popular among youngsters in this country. Order this in any parks, or school canteens in Saigon at a reasonable price, you will have a snack of mixed rice paper with fried prawns and some chili sauce, toppings with shredded dried squid, quail eggs and spicy dried beef.

Cơm tấm sườn nướng (com tam suon)

Talking about an Asian country or an Asian city, there is no way rice is not mentioned. In Saigon, you can find Com Tam everywhere you go, from small, family-run food stalls to fancy restaurants. This dish is so famous that there is a saying “you can smell two things in Saigon generally: exhaust fumes from vehicles and pork barbecues from Com Tam restaurants. A dish of Com Tam is the combination of dried broken rice eaten with a big, smoky flavor-soaked pork chop and some pickled carrots and cucumber. There are many options that you can choose like sunny side eggs, shredded pork skin or Vietnamese meatloaf. Our recommendation? Just order a grand, mega plate so you can try this dish at its finest.
 

There is a saying that when it comes to local food and drink specials, you should go wherever the crowds are. Then you know how to start your Saigon food tour!

Iced coffee 

Never leave Vietnam without trying their strong, unique coffee that you can not find a similar taste anywhere else. Here, coffee is served with a small metal drip filter over ice and condensed milk. The black one is somehow like expresso and the brown one has condensed milk in it.  

Sugar Cane Juice 

It is not as sickly sweet as you'd expect. Sugar cane juice is, on the contrary, considered "cooling". You can buy the drink from street vendors, who use electric squashing machines to squeeze the juice from sugar cane. To balance the sweet, seller often mix the liquid with juice from kumquats, a cute tiny sour citrus fruit smelling like mandarins. The finished product is truly refreshing on a hot, sunny day. 

Coconut water

Fresh coconut water is a popular drink in Vietnam so tourists can easily find the drink on Vietnam’s streets. The process is this: you choose a coconut, then the vendor will chop its head, put a straw on it and you can drink coconut water straight from the coconut. The tips are, small coconuts tend to be sweeter than the large ones. Having coconut water on a hot day in Vietnam and you will fall in love with this simple drink immediately. 

Fruit mix (Che) 

In every corner of Vietnam, you can easily find a stall selling the popular sweet treat - Che. It often likes a bowl of colorful pudding with various toppings to eat. The dish usually includes fruit, sweet beans, seed, jelly, glutinous rice, coconut milk… This sweat drink comes with a vast variety and combinations because each region has its own style of mixing Che. Travelers should not miss this, but beware since this sweet treat could be addictive. 

If there are too many choices that you find it hard to make up your mind, here are some food review app that you can count on: Foody, Lozi or even Now has very credible review systems for every restaurant on its system. Your Saigon food tour can never be this easy and delicious!
 

Like any other Asian countries with famous street food, the answer for Vietnamese street food is: it depends. There are always some street food stall owners who do not follow the hygienic precautions, and there are always people who do, so you have to guess. There are some ways that tourists can apply when it comes o street food:

  • Notice if the stall is busy or not. If it is busy with locals, there is a high chance that the food here is not only safe but also delicious. The opposite does not necessarily apply.
  • If you eat fried food, check the bottle of oil that the cook used - is it have a dark color or not?
  • Food stall with big glass cover will be cleaner
  • Consult your local guide or friends - the locals know it all.

This is used to be a way that the government used to raise awareness for all aspects of life: sovereign, public health, or pet injection.

In fact, this kind of food is of all-age favorite in Vietnam and is very nutritious.

The Gin House 

If you are just in for a drink, do not miss out The Gin house, where you can experience the best gin cocktails in town. Talking about hidden bars, the Gin house is one of the most famous thanks to their terrific drinks and the convenient location on the “Tay Street” - Bui Vien.

Bitexco Financial Tower

Some people on Instagram even call this “the symbol of Ho Chi Minh city” since almost all tourists have pictures of the tower (or with the tower) on their social accounts. This is the tallest building in the city, giving you an overview of the whole place. A picture of you with the wonderful view from Bitexco Financial Tower is a big must when you go to Saigon

Notre Dame Cathedral

The Cathedral was built in the late 19s by the French and is one of the very few remaining structures of Catholicism in Vietnam, where most of the population are Buddhist. An interesting rumor about this Cathedral is, the Virgin Mary statue in front of it is believed to shred tear in October 2005. With its gothic structure, you can have some iconic shots to show off on Instagram fro the outside of the church.

Central Post Office

The Central Post Office is right next to the Cathedral so it is very convenient for you to take a photoshoot tour. Constructed in the late 19th century, from the first glance, the Post Office looks just like a railway station. You can go here and send some letters or photo cards to your loved ones at home, a traditionally romantic way people used to express love while having some photos with this iconic landmark.

Nguyen Hue walking street

This street can be considered the heart of Saigon since it is in the vicinity of so many popular sites that attracts not only tourists but also Vietnamese local like the Notre Dame Cathedral, Central Post Office, City Hall, etc. This street is always busy, especially at night when people fled to the street to enjoy themselves after a long day at work. You can show your Saigon trip to all your followers just by taking pictures with the colorful street food, people in smurf and Pikachu costumes, or occasional art exhibition.

Ho Chi Minh City Central Post Office

The Central Post Office in Ho Chi Minh City is a glorious example of French colonial architecture, perfectly preserved with as much style as when it first opened in 1891. The building still functions as the city’s main post office and sending a letter or postcard home is highly recommended for a taste of living history. Beautiful from any angle, this building was designed by Gustave Eiffel, who also designed the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Notre Dame Cathedrals

Located next to the Central Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral is another relic of French colonial times and is kept in perfect condition, still holding masses every Sunday. Many of the building materials were imported from France and it has an unmistakable Gallic touch with two long spires measuring 60m in height. In front of the cathedral is a beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary or ‘Notre Dame’.

Travel to Saigon by air 

Ho Chi Minh is well connected to the world by a vast amount of airlines. Operating airlines to Ho Chi Minh city include big names such as Air France, Japan Airlines, Asiana, Lufthansa, United Airlines... The recently renovated international terminal made Tan Son Nhat airport the largest, both in size and capacity, among all airports in Vietnam. Domestically, there are daily flights such as Vietnam Airlines, Jetstar Pacific Airlines, Vietjet airlines to most of the attractions in Vietnam.

Travel to Saigon by bus

The bus runs from Phnompenh to Ho Chi Minh City every day, crossing Moc Bai border or ferry transfer in Chau Doc.

Travel to Saigon by train

It takes around 2 days from the North to South of Vietnam by train. Though it’s too slow, it’s a great way to appreciate the natural beauty and local culture of Vietnam that unfold along the way.
   

Getting around Saigon by taxi

Taxi is one of the most popular and convenient transportation you can find in Saigon. You can find several brands of taxi around your hotels, restaurants or any tourist hotspots in this city, and the price here is quite reasonable, just around VND 10,000 with every kilometer priced at VND 13,000 to 15,000.

Getting around Saigon by Motorbike

Xe om, the Vietnamese motorbike taxi can’t be ruled out when talking about transportation in Vietnam generally and Saigon especially. You can find “Xe om” in every corner of Saigon and have yourself an experienced driver to drive you through the street. Some drivers can show you the hidden gems of the cities: the best local shops or restaurants that no other tourists have reviewed before. 
Or, you can download Google Maps and rent yourself a motorcycle. You can find several rental shops on the Internet, or most hotels in Saigon can arrange that for you. Many tourists choose motor renting while having trips to Saigon. Our advice is the Pham Ngu Lao street. Where you can rent a bike or motorcycles with helmets at a reasonable price.

Getting around Saigon by Cyclo

If you come to Vietnam without trying to visit the street on a cyclo, that’s such a pity. The three-wheeled transportation is totally different from any other kind in Sagon. This is how you experience the old Vietnamese travel and have yourself a memorable experience.  

Vietnam, in general, is a safe destination for families with young kids to travel for a holiday. However, if you are heading for Saigon, do take note that the city is very hot and humid. Therefore, you should bring proper clothing, mosquito spray, hats, sun cream, etc. Should you have more worry, have some medicine packed with you.
