"The street food in Saigon is incredible. Learn the best spots from a local"
Jimmy Clarke - Marketing Manager

The street food in Vietnam is divine. This 4-5 hour tour introduces you to some of Saigon's finest dishes. Shows you the best spots to eat. Teaches you how to order the dishes and of course, leaves you with a very full belly.

  • Eat a bowl of Pho for breakfast

    Start your day at 08:30am slurping a bowl of Vietnam's unofficial national dish, pho. We will take you out of the tourist area into the "real" Ho Chi Minh City, to a pho place that's been serving noodle soup for more than 30 years. This place is one of Saigon's best kept secrets ... and it also serves great Vietnamese coffee.

  • Visit the markets and have a picnic

    After breakfast, we'll wander around the backstreets, past bakeries, com tam (broken rice) restaurants and other intriguing local shops. As we walk we'll start collecting snacks from local stalls and wandering vendors. We'll walk through a chaotic local wet market, past dried, pickled and fresh produce, live seafood and a noisy eating area. As we poke around, we'll collect more snacks and some tropical fruit. Then we'll adjourn to the grounds of a nearby temple to eat the food we've collected. After our picnic we'll explore the temple, which is dedicated to an Imperial military leader. You can get your fortune told at the temple using a strange system of numbered sticks.

  • Learn Vietnam basics

    During the tour we will teach you some of the basics that will make your visit to Vietnam enjoyable, including how to cross the road! While it's not physically possible to eat everything you see on the tour, when we're finished with you, you should be able to identify a range of local dishes and know how to order them.
