saigon-night-tour

As one of the most modern and busy cities in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City (or Saigon), is an ideal spot for travelers who want to discover the unique culture, including the lifestyle, cuisine, and traditions here, either at day or night. Saigon nighttime is entirely different from its daytime; there are a lot of things to do on a Saigon night tour that will give you memorable experiences you may never have before.

Itinerary for a Saigon Night Tour:

1. Admire Saigon historical landmarks at night

Believe it or not, everything in the city changes entirely after the sunset. The neon lights brighten every corner of the street, blending in the beautiful scenery. Many travelers have paid their visit to a series of impressive buildings and structures in Saigon, but not too many of them get to see those spectacular landmarks decorating with colorful lights, which only can be seen on a Saigon night tour. Imagine that in a beautiful weather night, rent a motorbike and zoom around this city to take a look around a chain of must-see Ho Chi Minh City’s tourist attractions including the Central Post Office and Notre Dame Cathedral in their different hidden charm.

If you are a person who loves the quietness or being alone, leaving behind the noise of the city, the harbor at night may be just the thing for you. One of the most worth visiting places to visit is Bach Dang Wharf, situated on the bank of the Saigon River. Up to the present day, it has become an exciting destination for the city's residents and tourists visiting Ho Chi Minh City. At Bach Dang Wharf, you will see a tall Tran Hung Dao Monument standing on the opposite of Ton Duc Thang Street, pointing his hand to Bach Dang Wharf, which is a reminder for the local of the heroic victory in Bach Dang Battle.

3. Take a glimpse at the red-light district on a Saigon Night Tour

If you like night scenes and hanging out with a lot of people, you will have to visit the red-light district or backpackers’ district (“Pho Tay Balo” to the locals). This place is a "temporary stop station" for almost all people coming from different parts of the world when they visit Ho Chi Minh City. When coming to the red-light district on a Saigon night tour, you will get to see another location in the city center, and enjoy lots of reasonable-priced street entertainment services with your friends, including Vietnamese beers in bars, dance clubs, and acoustic coffee shops. This place is very popular and usually crowded with foreigners and Vietnamese young people, especially at night. When there is an event coming up such as Halloween, the streets here will be packed with a lot of people from dusk till dawn.

Location: Pham Ngu Lao Street, Ben Nghe Ward, District 1
Time: nighttime

BBQ is a favorite dish of people all over the world, but the local BBQ or Vietnamese BBQ is a little bit different. The food is very refreshing, flavorful and balances well between the marinated meat, vegetables, herbs, and the dipping sauces. One more thing about this local BBQ is that it is often served outdoor where you can sit on the pavement, enjoying local BBQ and watch the nightlife happens in front of you.

Vietnam is one of the leading coffee exporters in the world, and coffee has played an indispensable part in the Vietnamese daily routine. People drink coffee many times a day, even at midnight. Although many international coffee brands have come to Vietnam, the locals still prefer to drink their traditional coffee which is made using an aluminum filter. The preparation of Vietnamese coffee to make it unique taste would be a fun experience for you. Instead of having a cup of coffee in the café or shop, you may find it more exciting to have this drink at a street vendor where you can sit and talk with your friends until any time you want.
