    Good way to see loca districts of Saigon

    The tour consisted of two parts I.e. Jeep tour in Saigon (2 hours) and the speed boat river trip to se the city from the river (also 2 hours). Particularly the first part of the trip is unforgettable because they bring you to the local commercial districts to see motorbike spare parts market, the local pharmacies and Chinese temples. Normally, the average tourist has no chance to make this experience during 2-days stay in Saigon when on his/her own. The only disadvantage is the smog attacking you when sitting for 2 hours in an open car. I truly recommend the operator to have the anti-smog masks available for tourists. We felt a bit dizzy when leaving the car after 2 hours. Then the trip continued on the boat to experience the local and business districts of Saigon from the river. Overall, well done!
