Saigon by vintage Vespa

See another side of Saigon with a vintage Vespa tour. You’ll experience a more authentic view of Saigon not felt in a car or bus tour.

If you go in the morning, you’ll head to the bird lovers club first and learn all about the history and practice of bird keeping.  Otherwise, your tour will start with a visit to the historical Dong Khoi Street, which literally translates to ‘people’s revolution.’ Here you’ll zip through old French colonial buildings and take in the sounds, smells, and sights of Vietnamese city life.

Then you’ll ride on to the Thich Quang Duc monument, commemorating the Vietnamese monk who protested against the persecution of Buddhists by South Vietnam’s Ngo Dinh Diem administration. Then you’ll make a quick stop at the colourful Ho Thi Ky flower market full of gorgeous fragrant flowers. Once you’ve learnt about the importance of flowers in Vietnamese culture, (and maybe bought a few for your hotel room), you’ll head to China Town and see the top sights there.

Your last stop will be Van Phan Pagoda where you’ll see thousands of Buddha statues, each one unique, and see how the locals pray to them. Then it's back to your hotel to reflect on the things you’ve seen and learned today.
