In the morning, meet your motorbike guide upon pickup from your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. You'll ride as a passenger on the back of a bike during this half-day tour that includes Saigon's famed street food.
First, receive safety instructions on how to ride properly, then climb aboard and be whisked away down the city streets (helmet included).
After stopping for a Vietnamese-style breakfast, stroll around a local wet market and observe the interactions between vendors and locals who come here to shop each day. Your guide can help you negotiate for the best bargain, and you might learn some basic Vietnamese words while trying. Sample different types of fruits and wash it down with coconut water before moving on.
You'll veer off the crowded tourist trail to view must-see historic landmarks and other sights along the way. Take a peek inside an old tucked-away apartment where you'll get a taste of Vietnamese coffee. While you sip this delicious drink, learn how a glass of coffee is made without a machine.
Finish with a Saigon delicacy for lunch—such as com tam (broken rice) or bun bo (beef noodle soup)—before traveling back to your hotel.
