Why You Shouldn’t Be Afraid to Walk the Camino de Santiago Solo

by Sherry @ Ottsworld Unique Travel Experiences

Urban Kaos - Wet, Wild and Wicked!

by noreply@blogger.com (Adam) @ Saigon Unseen

 Today was another great day on the road with Amanda and Luke from Australia. 

After checking out the lanes, alleys and markets of D3, we had a chat to some Monks, drive markets lanes, cruised the wide roads of Phu My Hung and dug into to some tasty Pho Ga! And while we did finish with a HUGE downpour and soaking wet, the smiles said it all - a wicked day out in Saigon! 

Check out the video below and see what the Urban Kaos Tour is all about it. Seriously, it's better than Mum's Sunday Roast! 

The video was made by Adam M, who also takes funky photos!

Review - “Saigon no longer unseen!”

by noreply@blogger.com (Adam) @ Saigon Unseen

We love getting feedback from the cool and funky people that travel with us! The ever popular Trip Advisor is a great source of info for travelers and a favorite place for Saigon Unseen travelers to tell the world just how wickedly brilliant it is cruising the streets on a Honda Wave!


Here is the latest! Read more at Trip Advisor and book your own tour!
Wow, what can I say? this is one of the best things I have ever done in Ho Chi Minh City.
I was a little hesitant at first about braving the traffic in Ho Chi Minh on the back of a motorbike driven by a complete stranger. But as it turned out, I had no cause to be concerned.
We visited places that are simply inaccessible by car. Consequently we saw things that we would not have normally seen.
The drivers had good English & were able to explain not just where we were, but a little of the history of the area as well. If you want to find out what Ho Chi Minh is really like from people who live there, this is the tour for you
Thankyou so much Mr Sau & Mr Song for a wonderful day.
