Days 2-3

Vespa Street Food Tour & Departure

Today is your own until just after nightfall. Shop for anything under the sun at Benh Thanh Market, visit the harrowing War Remnants Museum or take a peek at the Reunification Palace. The city has a multitude of colonial architecture including churches, the central post office and railway station. Alternatively, pull up a plastic chair at a street cafe and people-watch with a sweet Vietnamese coffee.

Just after sunset, your driver will arrive to take you on a mouth-watering whirlwind Vespa tour of the city. Weaving through a maze of alleys and cut-throughs, you’ll stop at hole-in-the-wall hangouts to try some authentic street food dishes. Along the way, you’ll meet some great local personalities and hit some live music bars and truly secret spots. It really is a night to remember!

After breakfast on day 3, it’s time to head off on your next adventure.

“Vietnam is as chaotic as it is calming, which is precisely why I love it! I’ve been spoiled for choice with its incredible landscapes and phenomenal pho, and having lived there for a spell, I’ve got plenty of my own tips to share!”
