Explore the Unseen Saigon by Night with the Ao Dai Girls!
The Ao Dai Saigon After Dark
Want to see a different side of Saigon? Let us take you outside of district 1 and show you local areas that most visitors don’t get to see. The city looks much different at night than it does in the daytime… from the lights of small apartments at Nguyen Thien Thuat apartment buildings since the 1960s to the amazing view of the Saigon River at night from District 2.
We will have a chance to visit Ho Thi Ky flower market which is a huge wholesale flower market hidden in alleyways of Ho Thi Ky Street. The guide and you walk through the market to see thousands of colorful flowers, fresh vegetables, live animals, and many strange things in the local market. We also troll into a Cambodian market inside the flower market to see how locals sell and buy everything from foods to condiments!
We continue the journey and drive through District 4 – a tiny humble island district separated from the city’s other parts by channels and rivers. This area is the former mafia hotspot run by Nam Cam notorious crime boss. A drive around Xom Chieu Market – one of the most hustle and bustle markets and food areas in the city gives you an insider view of this special district… and more.
So hop on and let us take you for a joyride!
What To Expect
The “Saigon by Night” tour is one of the most fun things to do in Vietnam at night and offers a completely different experience than our day tours. We’ll bring you to 5 of the most popular local districts in Saigon that most tourists don’t frequent and also give you a chance to try some delicious Vietnamese street food! You can try many local dishes, from the extremely popular “Banh Xeo” (Vietnamese Pancake), to the lesser-known “Com Tam” (grilled pork chops on broken rice), which is our personal favorite, and learn to grill a banana girdle cake and enjoy the crispy and smelling cake with sugarcane juice. We will stop at a famous street food stall to enjoy the soft, smooth, lightly sweet, greasy Flan cake topped some ice and Vietnamese black coffee.
Don’t worry vegetarians, we also have you covered with a delicious southern specialty called “Banh Xeo Chay” and “Bot Chien – Pan-fried scrambled rice cake”.
