What you'll do

Wake up and smell Saigon!

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.

Where you'll be

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 had a chance to run with Thu today and it was such a great experience. He shared with me a lot of humble stories about he started to find his purpose to live in life, how he started his own company. I highly recommend you running with him soon if you have an open, entrepreneurial mind.

This was a really cool experience! On my own I would not have had the courage to go out running so early and especially with the traffic in Saigon I felt it was absolutely perfect how Thu took care and made me feel safe. He chose a very good route starting from a market to the river and back to the city center. One highlight was the place were people bring their pet birds so their voices synchronise. Also the breakfast at the Restaurant Thu chose was simply fantastic! We talked about his business but also about running, dogs etc. Thu was very welcoming. The pace was comfortable, you don’t have to worry about keeping up because he will adapt to you. I especially appreciate how he likes to give back to the community and tries to create something of value to everyone. The profits from these runs are donated.

It was absolutely worth it to wake up at 5:30 in the morning for this. We had a good run and saw Saigon in a different light. Thu shared his unique perspective on entrepreneurship and other things that I found inspiring. This experience is an opporturnity to meet and connect with great people. Don't miss it!

A unique experience that I would not have been able to get anywhere. If you are interested in having a great conversation and get some exercise done along the way, this is the best experience for you.

Thu is both professionally and personally inspiring. Sure, a run at 6am thru streets already infested by motorbikes isn’t exactly the best enviro for a run yet with Thu’s forgiving pace and his infectious excitement to share of his entrepreneurial journey, 3h passed in a wink. 1. Caught a sight of HCM tourists generally won’t see, i.e. early morning activities of the locals 2. Heard, took in at first hand Thu’s thoughts on setting a mission, having a purpose, go on an adventure with one bag of stones killing a flock of birds and ending it with a value-delivering result no matter if I made it work or not. I still won for myself an adventure anyway. Great experience for thinkers and doers. Thank you Thu.

Enjoyed my run with Thu, it was a great experience to see the city rise in the morning - from the prep work in the market to people exercising in the parks before the sun rises. Thanks for the tour. Best- Tony
