Bike Tours

When we say bike, we don’t mean the motorised kind. We’re talking about pedal power. One of the really great ways to investigate the city is by bicycle. The relatively  at topography of the city means bicycling is fairly effortless. Free-wheeling in Ho Chi Minh City gives you a totally different perspective and provides a all too rare glimpse inside busy Vietnamese life. Group and private tours are widely available.

Motorbike Tours

See the city like a local and rev up your stay with a tour on a motorbike. Whether it’s on a stylish Vespa or with an ao dai-clad tour guide, weaving in and out of traf c like a true Saigonese is a great way to experience the vitality of the city. Luckily while riding tandem with a motorbike tour you don’t have to deal with the manic traf c. So don’t settle for a bus or minivan to see the city, get on a two- wheeler, relax and enjoy the experience.
