My friends and I only had two full days in Saigon (officially named Ho Chi Minh), so we decided to take a city tour operated by Back of the Bike Tours on our first afternoon to try and get a good feel of Vietnam’s largest metropolis.
The four-hour tour was well organised and informative. Every one in our group was assigned a personal guide who was knowledgable, enthusiastic, and pretty adept at navigating and merging among a sea of bikes. They took us around a number of the city’s districts to unfold the different sides of Saigon- from the standard tourist spots like its glorious Old French Quarter to the hidden gems such as the bustling local market. In less than 50 USD, it’s definitely a highly recommendable and somewhat adrenaline-pumping way to explore and experience the city through the eyes of locals.
