First time to Saigon? Don't know where to visit and what interesting things to do?
Don't worry. I am here to make sure you enjoy the time in Saigon to the fullest.
Here are the activities we are going to take:
-First, we will go around the center of Saigon and visit all the famous places including Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office which were of the construction of French colonist existing till today, the Reunification Palace, the used-to-be home and workplace of the president of South Vietnam in Vietnam war.
- After that, we will go to Ben Thanh Market, one of the symbols of Saigon. If you are interested in Vietnamese cuisine, then you are at the right place. You will have a chance to taste all kinds of food from Northern, Central to Southern Vietnam. I hope your stomach is large enough to eat all :p You can also buy souvenirs here and i will make a bargain on your behalf if you want to :d
- Then we will take a long road on motorcycle around the city to see the beauty of Saigon when night falls. We can stop by anywhere you want to have a quick visit. In addition, we will enjoy some of the street food along the road.
- Lastly, we will drive back to the center of HCMC and have a cup of coffee in a park. In Vietnamese we say "coffee bệt". Wonder why? It is a tradition of young Saigon-er gathering together to have a cup of coffee and have a chat with each other. Try being a Saigon-er, sounds interesting huh :D
Payment for the cuisine at Ben Thanh Market,ticket to the Reunification Palace, and souvenirs are excluded from the fee charged. I am sorry :( All other charges are included.
Means of transport will be my motorbike for free. Please notify me in advance if you bring friends along so that i can arrange my buddies to drive your friends.
The meeting point will be set up later for your convenience.
Hope to see you soon ^^!
We had a wonderful experience with Huyen and her friend as our tour guides. In spite of my poor english, they were very friendly and kindly. They took us to some places by their motorbike and we felt very exciting. They were very friendly. We went to a restaurant of Vietnamese traditional foods were we ate various dishes with a hand. I soaked it in salty-sweet sauce and was very delicious.
After that we went to the park of the scenery such as Mekong Delta. I felt the atmosphere that was cool and comfortable at there, and then I calmed down very much.
Last place was a market. There was a complete contrast to the above-mentioned park and very lively. I was able to feel the life of local people at there. The juice of the sugar cane was delicious too.
Thanks again for this really fun activity. If we have any free time, we want to ask you to guide again.
We had a wonderful experience with Huyen and her brother as our tour guides. She took us on our first motor bike ride and I felt completely save. Huyen's English is very good so communicating was easy. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and fun to be with. We went to a coffee place were I had my first famous Vietnamese cup of coffee. After that we went to the Reunification Palace, the church and the bridge over the Saigon river which presented a wonderful view. For dinner, Huyen took us to this wonderful seafood restaurant where she picked delicious dishes for us to try. Without the help of Huyen and her brother this experience would have been impossible. I can whole hardheartedly recommend Huyen. Thanks again for this fun introduction to Vietnam.
Huyen and her funny friend Ann are great, smart, and friendly guides.
They took two of us around famous places such as Post Office, NotreDome cathedral, and a market.
They told us how to bargain and I could get a jewelry with 30% off price there.
We were so excited to get on their moterbike. Riding on moterbike is much cooler than getting across the crush of them :p
We talked a lot and took a bunch of crazy photos.
I definitely recommend them if you want to make friends more than just be guided.
Really I enjoyed this activity.
We visited a local market and place, and enjoyed local foods.
She took me many places by her motorbike. So I experienced and enjoyed such a crazy traffic of Ho Chi Minh City !
(Don't worry ! She is a safety driver.)
I think She is helpful and good guide !
Huyen is very friendly and happy share insights in many aspects of life in HCMC and Vietnam and how it is to live/study/work here.
We visited some sights, had very good (and huge) vietnamese lunch, then off to chinatown and temples before ending with coffee.
The day involved lots of motorbiking, a pleasure to just flow through the sea of vehicles while she handled the craziness very safely.
You can't expect more! She is responsible, knowledgable, fun, and speaks English fluently,
I asked her to take me to a kind of "local secret" places because I've already visited famous places such as Post Office, War museums, Notre Dame Cathedral, etc.
We visited Chua Dieu Phap temple where you can never be able to go by yourself. The temple is along the riverside. There are many local people who enjoy the peaceful and cozy atmosphere. We bought fishes and let them free in the river. This is how Vietnamese do good at a temple.
Then, we went to a restaurant at the riverside. The restaurant was one of the best in Saigon!
After the restaurant, we went to a local market, Cho Ba Chieu, where there was no tourists. Huyen spent junior and high school days around here.
The highlight of the day was the next destination, night view on Thu Thiem Bridge. It's famous for a dating spot for young Vietnamese. You can see the overview of the center of Saigon city!
