Abercrombie & Kent's Ho Chi Minh city holidays are the perfect way to explore this vibrant city.
"Saigon After Dark by Vespa"The Saigon After Dark is a part night excursion, part street/local food adventure. Guests experience the nightlife of Saigon the way locals do, all from the back of a vintage Vespa scooter. Stops include drinks at Zoom cafe to watch "the world goes by" (as said in the Lonely Planet guide book), food and drinks at local restaurants (one stop for sea food and one stop for Southern food), samplings of Saigon's best authentic street/local food, a Vietnamese-style coffee shop (with live music) and wrapping up the evening at one of the many local nightclubs (with live music) , where the new generation of Vietnamese unwind and flaunt their unique style. Guests will enjoy and experience the Vietnamese night life with friends.... It's definitely a look at Saigon the way the residents live it -- nothing you'll find in a guidebook. All food and drinks (including alcoholic drinks) for the evening are included in the tour.
Best time to be there
Regional climate differences mean that there is no best time; try September to December to avoid the humidity in the north, December to April to miss the rains in the south and December to March is perfect for trips to the Central highlands. Catch the Trung Thu Moon festival in September or October for traditional lion and dragon dances.
