As you probably know, Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is a place filled with motorbikes, currently there are about 7 million motorbikes on the road. Most of the people who live here will drive a motorbike, as it’s much cheaper then owning a car and you get around a lot faster.
Driving a motorbike in HCMC requires skill and knowledge of the flow of traffic. It’s very different than in any other city around the world. Just take a look at this clip of the traffic, it’s unbelievable! Besides this, it’s also not advisable for a tourist to go around on a motorbike, as you need a Vietnamese driver’s license to drive around and be insured should anything happen.
But how can you as a tourist experience the traffic in HCMC by motorbike, without driving yourself? On the back of a classic Vespa with an experienced driver! You will visit the highlights or you can do an evening food tour.
And these tours are not only available in HCMC these days, but also in Hanoi, Hoi An and Hue!
There is not really a better way to experience Vietnam.
