One of the best experiences that I think visitors missed out on in this big city is life during the early dawn. Therefore, we will meet at 6 AM, when the air is still crisp, at a wet market by the backpacker district and jog our way around the city center so you can experience real life in Ho Chi Minh City...and hopefully you'll love it as much as I do. As a travel entrepreneur and currently operating a travel experience company in this city, I can share my unique perspective about this city that's beyond the typical city tour that travelers can sign up for. We will walk, jog, run, and talk about the city, the people, the history, and maybe even entrepreneurship, which is something I have taken on, full blast! Lastly, 100% of all proceeds will go towards a local charity program called Sky Lantern operated by Saigon Hot Pot, where a lot of our full-time Onetrip team members come from.
I am a Superhost on Airbnb since 2014 and have been providing local experiences to travelers from all over the world via Christina's Social Accommodation and Onetrip Motorcycle Adventures. If you need accommodation or simply want to join us for some of the best local adventures in Vietnam, don't hesitate to message me. With this experience, I will share with you the early hours that I love so much in this city, a unique perspective that travelers rarely see. And if you remind me, I can share with you how I ended up running with Airbnb's co-founder, Nate, as captured in the photos.
Au Parc Restaurant We'll wrap up the experience with breakfast at Au Parc. Here we can talk more about entrepreneurship in…
We will meet at Cho Thai Binh (Thai Binh Market). This market is located right at the Cong Quynh and Nguyen Trai roundabout. From there, we will run out to the Saigon river and cut back into the city center via the Walking Street of Nguyen Hue and eventually end up at the Tao Dan Botanical Garden before a cool-down walk to Au Parc for breakfast (inclusive in the price).
I will be wearing a small backpack to keep our gears, such as mobile phones and wallets. So no need to bring your own bag unless you want to. Simply come with your sneakers and be ready to run!
