Vespa Adventures

The highlight of the recent Ho Chi Minh trip had to be that vespa tour with Vespa Adventures. They offer 4 different tours to cater to the different interests of tourists. We decided to go with the night tour as it had thebest reviews on TripAdvisor.

The tour started at 6pm (with a small drizzle) and the vespa team picked us up from our hotel – with the vespas that we were gonna ride (pillion) for the night. Really convenient. We then headed to Zoom Cafe to meet up with another 2 ladies who had also signed up for the tour. After some drinks and snacks and cake (happy birthday again TC), the real adventure began.

Let’s Go!

We arrived at our 1st stop. A small seafood stall in District 7.

The stall.

Shrimp Salt Roasted Crab. Yumms.

Clams Vietnam Style

And this, Chem Chep is super good.

I have to say the Chem Chep is really awesome. Coming from me, who doesnt eat mussels, oysters, clams etc.. this has no fishy taste at all.

And that’s all. Goodnight.

And we ended off the tour at a pub. If you are ever ever going to Ho Chi Minh, this is one tour that you SHOULD take. Although it costs $72USD, it’s totally worth it. No regrets.

Good Food. Great Entertainment. Nice People.
