The top gear motorbike tour from Hue to Hoi An ranked 12th while the private street food tour by motorbike in Ho Chi Minh City came in 14th on the list of the 25 best travel experiences according to Tripadvisor’s 2021 Travelers’ Choice of the Best Things to Do.

The selection comes from more than 400,000 bookable activities on its website and is curated by a combination of user ratings and reviews.

The eight-hour motorbike tour from former imperial capital Hue to the ancient town of Hoi An allows visitors to explore famous tourist attractions in central Vietnam such as Lang Co Beach, Hai Van Pass, Da Nang, the Marble Mountains and Hoi An itself.

“Amazing from start to finish! So friendly, great fun. The views were epic! Such good value! It’s a must if you’re in Vietnam,” a Tripadvisor reader said.

Organised by Ho Chi Minh City-based tour operator Saigon Back Alley Tours, the food tour by motorbike takes around four hours, delving into the street food scene in Vietnam’s southern metropolis. The tour includes beverages, food tasting, dinner, snacks and hotel pickup and drop-off.


“There’s no better way to get into the swing of Saigon than riding a motorbike. On this private guided foodie adventure, you’ll sample eight separate tastings at a range of street eateries,” said a Tripadvisor reader.

A jet flight tour in Dubai was ranked the best travel experience in the world by Tripadvisor readers, followed by white water rafting along Kaituna River in New Zealand.
