Well greet you at your accommodation at 17:30 and depart right away on back of our motorbikes to immerse yourself in the insane traffic. The only thing that really stands between you and some awesome vegan food is the daily-dice-with-death traffic situation which is often at ridiculous speeds.
Our first stop is in District 3, a hip new spot with relaxed, historical environment all around. Here youll kick the tour off with a famous story of a Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk who burned himself for protesting the persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnamese government. After learning about history of the people of Saigon, head up to a local vegan restaurant, a calm spot combined with nostalgic vibes, where youll savor "Banh Xeo" - vegan Vietnamese rice pancake served with fresh vegetables and vegan "fish sauce".
Coming over District 10 then going off-the-beaten path and diving into Saigons deep-rooted culture visiting a true maze of the biggest wholesale flower market and a local market inside to have an authentic local experience in hidden alleys by grilling banana crispy crackers, local hangouts that you should not miss out on. Dont get too comfy among the cushions as weve got to hurry to experience the highest pagoda of the city "Viet Nam Quoc Tu" located in quiet space with its spectacular architectures before closing! From there, well cross the road to the most famous restaurant of Saigon to sample vegan food fares. At the peak of culinary innovation, let your senses run wild with carefully planned Vietnamese dishes featuring sustainable ingredients and sip on your old-fashioned water or vegan beer.
Driving to District 5 and pass the local streets of the night life. Take a spin around on the journey along the banks of the Saigon river in District 4 - The perfect time to cross the bridge to Saigons bustling night scene. After getting a welcoming breeze from the back of the bike, well finish you off with a sweet treat like either coconut ice cream or a dish of fresh fruit.
