What you can expect

When the sun goes down, the city of Saigon shows a totally different face. The main highlights of the city light up & the vibes of the city become full of excitement with the locals looking for fun things to do. You and your group can fully enjoy it with your own private guide.

So start your night out in front of the statue of Saint Mary, right by the Notre Dame cathedral. Here, you’ll hear all the stories about this wonderful lighted cathedral built in 1880 by the French.
Continue your walking tour and make a stop at the Post Office. This magnificent building is a mix of Gothic, Renaissance & French influences. Admire it under the moonlight and spotlights of its own lights.

Your next stop will be a sweet one at Công Câphê. This local coffee shop is located at an eclectic old apartment building that is now home of several small shops like boutiques, galleries & restaurants. This building complex is a favorite of the young locals. At Công Câphê, it’s a must to try its signature drink: a coconut milk iced coffee. Get it to go and continue discovering Saigon at night.

Walk through the beautiful Nguyen Hue Street and hear incredible insights about the city & its locals. Your local guide will make a small detour to show you the fascinating Opera House. A highlight of the city you cannot miss, specially at night where you can enjoy its French colonial architecture without the bustle of its daily visitors.

Now it’s time to go to the Ben Thanh Night Market! Take some time to shop around. Here you can find unique local handicrafts & goods. Your private guide will be there with you to help you out with translation and bargaining. Here you’ll also try Vietnamese street food. Our recommendation, the Bánh Căn, small savory pancakes made in little clay pots. Seriously mouthwatering.

Take a “grabtaxi” and live for yourself the movement around the streets of Ho Chi Minh City. Your taxi will take you and your group to the famous backpackers street, a long street where the locals & tourists meet to enjoy a fun night out. Your local host can give you all the tips you want for visiting this street again. Maybe some live music? A local beer? The options are endless!

To end the night the right way, finish with a rooftop view of Saigon. Invite your host for a drink & keep the night going with more incredible insights and local stories.

This tour is 100% personalized to fit your needs. Your local guide will gladly adjust the experience so you can have the night of your life!
