Spend a day to enjoy simple pleasures around Thao Dien by bicycle
Known as one of the quieter corners of Saigon for its lighter population and greenery, Thao Dien is an ideal place for a short-time retreat whenever the local people need to break free from their life.
In the street of Thao Dien, you can see the people slowly pedaling from place to place, just enjoying their time. If you happen to have a free day at Thao Dien, why not join along with them and have yourself the simple pleasure of moving through this lovely area on 2 wheels?
At Amanaki Thao Dien, we have standard bicycles that are always ready for our customers when they need one to go around town.

The heat is getting intense, why not cool it down with an authentic Italian Gelato right in the middle of Thao Dien? Located in a quiet neighborhood with many stylish cafes and stores, Ralf's Gelato is our favorite place to get a treat during summer time. Their fascinating flavors and buttery melting texture have nourished the childish passion in us for ice cream, no matter how old we have become.
