Your sensational city bike tour begins at the magnificent Ho Thi Ky Flower Market, Ho Chi Minh City’s largest flower market.

Your day tour takes you onwards along the Thi Nghe Canal, an atmospheric waterway lined with luscious trees and offering stunning views of Ho Chi Minh City. You’ll soon pedal up to the Jade Emperor Pagoda, a terrific Taoist pagoda also known as the ‘Luck Sea Temple’. Admire the captivating crimson facade, intricately decorated to honor the supreme Taoist god, Ngoc Hoang (King of Heaven, or Jade Emperor). Built in 1909, this phenomenal pagoda is one of the most intriguing temples in Ho Chi Minh City and a delight for the senses - your eyes will be drawn to the ornate tile work and intricate statues, partially obscured by the curls of pungent smoke issuing from exotic incense.

Just nearby is the Notre Dame Cathedral of Saigon, an unmissable icon of the city with a resplendent red exterior. Many tourists take a special interest in the statue of the Virgin Mary outside the cathedral - in 2005, witnesses claim to have watched a tear trickle down the right side of the statue’s face, and although the top clergy in the Catholic Church could not confirm the sighting, the incident has drawn intrigued visitors for over a decade.
