Ho Chi Minh – Vietnam

Wheeling through Saigon


Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon is an energetic, vibrant place and is Vietnam‘s most visited place. This whirlwind city offers quite a few unique ways to explore – perfect for solo travelers and corporate groups.


Enjoy views of the Saigon River and the city skyline from the comfort of a double-decker boat designed to evoke old Saigon. The 164-foot-long boats are designed to host groups and parties, so whether you want to reward your team for a job well done or you are looking for a memorable, floating venue for your next business meeting, Bonsai Cruises will cater to all your needs. Their menu is based on local delicacies and focuses on fresh, hand-selected ingredients. They also offer on-board entertainment such as live music and other traditional performances.


Another adventurous way to see the city is from the back of a comfortable, vintage Vespa scooter. Vespa Adventures offers tours to suit many different travel styles. Escape the hustle of the city and take a tour out to the Mekong Delta. You will zip through rice paddies and over many rivers, stopping in small villages to check out their local industries such as the making of rice wine.


Looking for something off-the-beaten path? Take the Insider’s Saigon tour. This scooter tour will take you to hidden gems throughout the city and is a great way to see Saigon in a day. Otherwise, consider one of their nightlife tours. The Saigon Craft Beer tour will take you to four different breweries within the city. For foodies, the Saigon After Dark tour will take you to some of the best hot spots and show you where the locals like to hang out at night.
