Known as a non-sleeping city, Saigon is hustle and bustle during the day and at night. When the sun goes down, the city becomes a splendid girl with her new colorful and twinkle coat.

Our talented guide with the motorbike picks you up at your hotel (or any location requested by you). After a short riding instruction and program introduction of the Saigon After Dark Tour by Motorbike, we hop on the motorbike. The guide makes sure you are ok on the motorbike before weaving around the main streets and narrow alleyways to see the city. Firstly, we stop at tourist attractions in District 1 including Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, Saigon Central Post Office where you admire the beauty of old French architectural works, learn more about history and culture, take the most beautiful photos in the city. If you have visited these places on another tour, we can skip them. A lovely book street next to the post office is worth wandering.
Leaving the post office, we pass by Venerable Thich Quang Duc Monument. We will tell you some less-known history and story about the monk and his unburned heart. We stop at over 30-year-old Bot Chien Dat Thanh – the oldest and most famous places to eat 3 amazing Saigon specialties including Pan-fried scrambled egg rice cake, Dumplings.
Head to District 3 and a Nguyen Thien Thuat apartment buildings which were built in the 1960s and have been home to lots of Saigon people. There you can see the real Saigon local life at night. Then we head to District 10 and stop at Ho Thi Ky flower market which is a huge wholesale flower market hidden in alleyways of Ho Thi Ky Street. The guide and you walk through the market to see thousands of colorful flowers, fresh vegetables, live animals, and many strange things in the local market. We also troll into a Cambodian market inside the flower market to see how locals sell and buy everything from foods to condiments. How about learning to grill a banana girdle cake until smelling and crispy? Beat the cake in a funny way and enjoy it. See how they extract sugarcane juice and enjoy a glass of iced sugarcane juice.
Stop at a Banh cuon stall to see how the skillful cook steam very thin rice sheet and stuff it with delicious fillings. Eat the steamed rice rolls with Vietnamese pork roll, Cinnamon pork pate, herbs, vegetables, and fish sauce dip.
We continue the journey and drive through District 4 – a tiny humble island district separated from the city’s other parts by channels and rivers. This area is the former mafia hotspot run by Nam Cam notorious crime boss. A drive around Xom Chieu Market – one of the most hustle and bustle markets and food areas in the city gives you an insider view of this special district. We stop at a famous street food stall to enjoy the soft, smooth, lightly sweet, greasy Flan cake topped some ice and Vietnamese black coffee.
Drive through Thu Thiem Tunnel and reach District 2 which is on the way to become a new urban area, political and economic center of the city. The view of Saigon at night from District 2 is really amazing and should not be missed by any traveler. The guide drives around Ben Thanh night market if you would like to see it.
Lastly, the guide returns you to your hotel. It is time to say goodbye, tour ends but memories last forever.
