Itinerary

Day 1: Saigon Evening Scooter
Your experienced driver and guide will pick you up at 17:30. Discover Saigon while the sun is going down, sitting behind your driver on the scooter. Enjoy the view, smell and sound of this stunning city. On the tour you will learn more about authentic Vietnamese cuisine and culture. Listen to vendors' stories about the food and try a bowl of pho, the Vietnamese rice noodle soup while the air it’s getting cooler. Your guide will show you how the Vietnamese use the spoon and chopsticks.

Two addicting snacks to try are rice paper salad and Vietnamese pizza. This is what the young people of Saigon eat, and you can find both everywhere in the city’s food stalls. Try one of the many snails from the snail stall and make your choice of cooking method. Do you prefer your snail grilled with salt, grilled with chopped green onion oil, stir-fried with coconut milk or dry stir-fried with salt and chili? Snail eating is an important part of Saigon culture.

Nhau, Vietnamese beer food, is part of everyday life and definitely something for you to try. Vietnam is one of the countries consuming the highest amount of beer in the world. Having a beer is a way for young people in Saigon to relax after a hard day of work. They will go with co-workers and friends or as couples, sitting outside at sidewalk cafes in the afternoon or late at night.

Your guide will take you to different food stall to have a taste of the best Saigon street foods. There are various things for your choice: Vietnamese pancake, stuffed rice pancake, broken rice with grilled pork. The great way to end this amazing food tour is going for a sample of delicious Vietnamese sweet soup and coconut jelly. Your guide will drive you back to the hotel at 21:30 PM.
