Xích Lô (say it out loud and you’ll hear the word – Cy-clo!) was one of the most popular taxi services in the early 20th century, and is still the best way to experience Sài Gòn’s insane traffic and wonderful city scenes. We designed this three-hour tour for who would enjoy glimpses of local, daily life in Sài Gòn. This “authentic” way allows visitors to discover the city center in intense emotions. It’s like you are in the center of a whirlwind of movement, wrapped in a cacophony of horns and the bustle of people who trying to make their way in the middle of all this excitement.
Pick-up time is between 9:00am - 9:30am at hotels in District 1; and take you to some of the bustling markets where Sài Gòn life thrives: Flower market, pet market, second-hand market, even the market where accessories and parts for motorcycles are sold… and Bình Tây wholesale market, one of the biggest markets in Hồ Chí Minh city.
Your visit to an ancient pagoda, to gain insights into Vietnamese spiritual practices, will be the perfect finale for this enlightening and entertaining tour!
Your driver will complete the excursion by taking you back to your hotel or drop-off somewhere in District 1 as request.
