SAIGON HALF DAY CITY TOUR

Distance: 30km (Moderate to Easy)

Time: 07:00 – 12:00

Duration: ½ Day

Itinerary: With departure from your hotel, you will start cycling along the river to discover the French architectural style of the oldest Bank in Saigon. 

You will continue through District 2 with its modern skyscrapers and the 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 surroundings as well as it's 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 along isolated small routes along the river offering an amazing Downtown view. You will pedal until you reach Sala neighbourhood, a newly developing residential area built for high-income families.

From this luxurious neighbourhood 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 and after only a few kilometres in, you will meet with a mini-Mekong Delta area in the middle of Saigon! You will be able to see coconut trees, small fields, tractor, farmers and chickens running freely within the small villages as well as traditional houses with water coconut leaf roofs.

A true plunge into the past!  From this village, you will cycle back to District 1 with a local breakfast on the way. In District 1, you will ride next to the Notre Dame Cathedral of Saigon and 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.
