Motorbikes are the primary transportation in Ho Chi Minh city in particular and Viet Nam in general. The best way to explore the life of the locals is to sit at the back of motorbikes. If you love having new experiences then join with us. Though it is just a 4 hour- tour, we assure that you will have a complete view of life and cultures of people here. Starting at 08:00AM or 1:00 PM, motorbike tour guides will pick you up at your hotels or specific locations. After getting acquainted with each other, we will introduce the tour schedule to you. The first place we visit is the Thich Quang Duc memorial monument in district 3 - this is the place where Thich Quang Duc buried himself to protest the persecution of Buddhism by the South VietNamese Government in 1963.

Then we will visit the Thien Hau Pagoda (Mother of Sea) which was built by the Chinese in 1760 in order to bring their religious beliefs to Viet Nam. The materials of the pagoda were imported from China by boat. Now the pagoda is highly appreciated by the people of China Town- a place of Chinese residents in district 5.

Old mysterious apartment building

Built in 1968, Nguyen Thien Thuat building has kept plenty of memories of Saigon from the Wartime up to now. It’s worth to come and enjoy the ancient atmosphere, which is unique and totally out of place among the modern Saigon.

This is an integrated destination which has lots of residents from many parts of Vietnam to come and live for a long time. That’s the reason why its cuisine is really fascinating.

Over 250 years old temple

Ba Thien Hau (Lady of the Sea) temple in Saigon is a Buddhist temple dedicated to the Chinese sea goddess, Mazu.

It’s believed that she had protected and rescued ships and fishermans by flying around on a mat or cloud. Mazuism is connected with traditions and beliefs from both Taoism and Buddhism. You will find this temple in ‘Cholon’ (Chinatown) in District 5, which is roughly a twenty minute drive from the city centre.

Special market

There is a less-known market floating on Kenh Te canal in District 7. The market’s style reminds to the daily life of people living in Mekong Delta (Western Region of Vietnam). Tourists can see dozens of boats at anchor along the canal selling typical fruits of the Mekong Delta such as banana, coconut, rambutan, mango, and grapefruit, etc.

Statue of a Mahayana Buddhist monk

At midday on June 11, 1963, the venerable monk Thich Quang Duc immolated himself to protest repression against Buddhism by the former Sai Gon regime. To memorize his struggle for peace, independence and reunification, his statue was built in a park on Cach Mang Thang Tam Street, where the act took place.

Biggest Wholesale Flower Market

Ho Thi Ky is one of the biggest flower markets in Saigon since 1987, which  is really famous for fresh and colorful flowers carried from different parts of Vietnam.

The lively beauty and diversity of flowers can get visitors stunning at the first time. This market opens 24/7 and is always bustling, rusty and energetic, especially in special events and holidays.

Coffee and tea time

In China town, we will visit an old apartment and enjoy tea with many types of jams in the local coffee shop.
