Many travelers talk about wanting have more local experiences – but how far will you go to get access to those experiences? One of the main things locals do in Saigon is ride motorbikes – so would you get on the back of one to ride around like the locals do? Most people think that simply crossing the street in Ho Chi Minh City is a real life Frogger game – a death wish. Vietnam is known for their chaotic motorbike traffic and it can be quite intimidating to most tourists.
There were three ‘rules’ to this Saigon street food tour:
- We recommend that you don’t drink too much water as it will fill you up too fast.
- You should pace yourself.
- Know that you don’t have to eat everything given to you.
This is exactly what you want to hear when you take a food tour! These were the three pieces of advice our guides from Back of the Bike Tours in Saigon gave to us before we started out evening street market food tour.
