Hi travelers, let me ask you somethings :) _ Have you ever rode a motorcycle?
If your answer is yes, then let me ask you another question ;)
_ Have you ever rode a motorcycle on HCMC streets???

In Saigon, when you ride your motorcycle you have to ride in mixed traffic together with cars. And when you are riding this motorcycle amongst all these cars and other motorcycles, OMG! It makes me feel really good, because the tire diameter is large, when you ride right past the cars, it really is a smooth ride. Speeding up and a smooth ride and also because the seat point and the eye point are high so you have a very good view of the landscape around you. You can feel the wind on your face and watch Vietnamese people rushing on the street.

The trip is not only about riding around Saigon with motorcycle. It's also a trip to China town at district 5. It takes only 20 minutes to travel from Ben Thanh market to China town by motorbike. I can guide you to "Chợ Lớn" (as known as Cho Lon to foreigners and "Chợ Bình Tây" to locals) and we can visit Chinese temples Chùa Bà Thiên Hậu (Chua Ba Thien Hau Temple). You have chances to experience Vietnamese Chinese locals' lifestyle and try Chinese foods, also Vietnamese street foods.

The maximum cost takes about 400.000 Vietnam dong (approximately 20 USD) for one traveler. Revenue is Ben Thanh market Southern gate, then we can move to China town with my motorcycle.

It has motorcycle.
It's Vietnamese.
It's Chinese.
What are you waiting for?!

An is a very good, fun and reliable guide. The night motorcycle ride offered an exciting and off-the-beaten track experience of exploring the Saigon city at night.

Great ride with Thien! She is an amazing guide and person.
I can fully recommend her.
Booking was easy and we arranged hours and location very flexible.
Safe but energizing ride, new impressions of the tourist track, many insights from her, ...3 hours went by in a second.
Next time again.

Thien is an excellent guide and a lovely lady, She speaks flawless English and rides confidently and safely. Her knowledge of the city is extensive and her conversation and company is priceless! Thanks

So I was in HCMC for one night only, and fortunately An was available that night at short notice to show me her amazing hometown.

She is funny, friendly and chatty, and will definitely keep you entertained throughout. Naturally she is very knowledgeable about her city, and will take you around to do and see the things you want.

Saigon is an amazing place, and An is an even more amazing tour guide. You won't regret it. As the song goes, you really won't believe the things you'll see.

Tip: The next person to meetrip her should take her to McDonald's, as she's never tried it before. I wanted to take her, but we were too stuffed from all the other great good we had : )

Thien was a great tour guide. She is quite a lovely person and easy to talk to. She took me around on the back of her scooter around district 1 to have coffee just like the locals where we relax and discuss vietnamese culture. She showed me other places such as the local parks, the war museum, reunification palace, some temple that's not on any map, Notre Dame cathedral, the postoffice and then had lunch at a small restaurant. She also suggested some more places to explore but unfortunately I didn't have time to get to try them all. One of them was a phở restaurant which had the best phở I've had so far in Vietnam.

Today I met with Thien in Ho chi Minh, i had a great time, she was lovely, her English is excellent and very helpful. We went by motorcycle to the fine arts museum, the zoo and then got a coffee in a cool little Vietnamese coffee house (that I never would've found if not for her. An all around wonderful way to experience a new city. Highly recommended!
