Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon) is the biggest city in Vietnam. Now over 300 years old, the metropolis once known as “the Pearl of the Far East” is filled with countless historical artifacts and unique cultural cross-overs both old and new.
Forget the famous sights and attractions such as the War Remnant Museum, the Reunification Palace, or Notre Dame Cathedral. With a map and a few spare hours, you can see any of these places yourself. But there’s much more to Saigon than what goes into the guidebooks.
With the help of our English-speaking tour guides, it’s time to uncover the real Saigon. Come see what the city’s youngsters do in their spare time, learn how religion affects Vietnamese culture, and hear what makes each of Saigon’s many districts unique. Is there a huge gap between the rich and the poor? How does northern Vietnam differ to the south? And how do you pronounce “pho”? In the era of TripAdvisor, what secrets does Saigon still hold?
Let the Tigers answer all of these questions and more as you traverse our home city on the back of a motorbike… just like a local!
