CHALLENGE NUMBER 1:

TAKE A SELFIE ON A MOTORBIKE

Take a selfie while sitting behind someone riding a motorbike!
Saigon’s traffic is so intense, scary and exciting that you will think that DisneyLand is for amateurs… Honestly, a lot of travelers filmed it and laughed about it. You can’t visit Saigon without experiencing it!

This challenge gives you the opportunity to learn how to get around Saigon when you just arrive in Ho Chi Minh City. We can give you more details about using Grab (it is like Uber), renting or buying motorbikes, crossing the country by bus or plane, etc. Information in this article.
