Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Siagon or the Pearl of Indochina, has a lot to offer from the famous Independence Palace to the magnificent Notre Dame Cathedral. However, there is much more to explore within the electric city and no better way to experience it than on a cyclo three-wheeled bike taxi. This tour is for those who desire a deeper understanding of traditional folk performances, Vietnamese history and culture, and a taste for authentic foods. And to top it all off, a romantic dinner cruise down Saigon River aboard a colourful dragon boat.
Ho Chi Minh City
Duration: 4 hours
Meeting Point: 5:30pm District 1 Hotel pick-up
Finish Point: Hotel drop-off
Hop on your very own Vietnamese, eco-friendly cyclo, then lean back and relax and let your driver worry about navigating the bustling city. As you cruise through the lively streets of Ho Chi Minh City, take in the local culture, bustling markets, and enjoy the intricate architecture featuring French colonial influences. Travel to a local theater for a 50 minute Vietnamese water puppet show and watch the puppets seemingly come to life as they perform traditional folklore, legends, and historical tales that cover more than 800 years of history. After the show, head to the pier for a dinner cruise down the winding Saigon River aboard a colourful dragon boat. Along the way, indulge in a sumptuous Vietnamese buffet and enjoy live folk music and native dancing that showcases Vietnam’s unique culture and heritage. The boat returns to the pier in the late evening for your return ride to your hotel.
