The rest time is for you to relax until 6pm when we begin a motorbike tour of Saigon by night: Do you want to see a different side of Saigon? Allow us to take you outside of District 1 and show you places that most visitors do not see. The city looks very different at night than it does during the day, from the lights of the red paper lanterns in Cholon to the incredible view of the Saigon River from Thu Thiem bridge. Drive down the newly built Saigon freeway and marvel at the magnificent Bitexco Tower, one of Vietnam’s tallest structures! Crowds gather at many of the makeshift sidewalk cafes that appear magically at night. We will also show you the stark contrast between old Saigon and the emerging modern city! So get on board and let us take you for a ride! Our night tours in Saigon are very different from our day tours. We will take you to 5 of the most popular districts in Saigon that most tourists do not visit, as well as give you the opportunity to sample some delicious Vietnamese street food! You can select from three local dishes, ranging from the extremely popular “Banh Mi” (Vietnamese baguette sandwich) to the lesser known “Com Tam” (grilled pork chops on broken rice), our personal favorite! Don’t worry, vegetarians: we’ve got you covered with a delectable southern specialty called “Banh Khot Chay.” Stay overnight in a hotel in Saigon.
