Riding behind a young female driver dressed in traditional Vietnamese ao dai
tunic is the most fun you can have in Ho Chi Minh City, according to commenters on Trip Advisor.
XO Tours' motorbike tours led by pretty, English-speaking women is currently ranked number one among 191 traveling events in the southern metro by the world’s largest travel site.
XO stands for xe om, a term for motorcycle taxi drivers.
The blue trousers the XO guides' wear are cut a little narrower than the traditional style to make it easier for them to drive. They take drivers to street food stalls designed to win over visiting tourists.
One commenter described the tour thusly: “Love like a local for a few hours”.
While tasty street food is held up as plus for many of the tourists, “the experience of being driven across Saigon, being entertained and informed by the ladies and looked after by the gentlemen was second to none,” one Australian wrote on the site.
