Itinerary:

You will meet our team at 7:00am at Mr Biker Saigon District 1 (354 Võ Văn Kiệt, Phường Cô Giang, Quận 1, Hồ Chí Minh 700000). You will start cycling to the river to discover the French architectural style of the oldest Bank in Saigon.  You will then continue through District 2, its modern skyscrapers and best view of Saigon’s skyline. Our team will then take you to an unknown splendid French church first built in 1840. The greenery in its surrounding as well as its architecture will leave you with an impression of Dalat City. You will meet the Sisters working for the Church and try their dairy delicacies. After this relaxing stop, you will cycle on isolated small routes along the river offering an amazing downtown view. You will pedal until Sala neighborhood, a new developing residential area, built for high-income families. From this luxurious neighborhood, your view will completely change as you will follow a small path into a more rural area where you will stop for some drinks at a local café. After the drinks, you will cycle into another world. Only few kilometers in, you will meet with a mini-Mekong Delta village in the middle of Saigon! You will be able to see coconut trees, small fields, tractor, farmers, sheep and chickens running freely within the small villages as well as traditional houses with water coconut leaves roofs. A true plunge into the past!  After 10 minutes of free-time exploring the rural village and its small local market, you will cycle back to District 1. A local breakfast will be taken on the way. In District 1, you will ride to the famous Notre Dame Cathedral of Saigon. From there, we will leave our bikes for a walking tour of the Cathedral, the Post Office, and the Book Street where you will have some free-time to browse and lastly, we will stop at an important site in the American history of the Vietnam War You will then cycle back our departure point to end the tour around noon.
