The ‘hard labor’ pays off regularly though, and last week our Vietnam Travel Specialist Diep Tuong Vi confirmed an exciting city tour option offering travelers the chance to explore Ho Chi Minh City from the saddle of a vintage scooter.
Saigon is a city of a million motorbikes and each day swarms of bikers move swiftly in unison from place to place. The city has an incredible network of backstreets and lanes to explore, many of which you’ll discover on our Vespa tour.
An open, exploratory tour, you will be led around Ho Chi Minh City by an expert Backyard Travel guide – a local who knows the city (still lovingly known as Saigon by locals) like the back of their hand.
As temporary members of Vietnam’s Vespa fraternity, travelers can pick either a two- or four-hour trip, moving effortlessly through the city. The city tour has no rigid structure though, and due to the luxury and ease of mobility with the vintage scooters, travelers are free to pause to interact with locals or stopping when they please to take (or pose for!) pictures.
The Vespa tours take in a variety of sights and sounds revealing the city’s culture, architecture and history at a pace you can set yourself in a typically authentic Vietnamese way.
If you’re thinking of taking a Vietnam vacation, please get in touch with one of our local Travel Specialists who will be happy to help you organize escapades like this Ho Chi Minh Vespa tour!
