Hoi An Full Moon Festival Dates

Every month in Hoi An, on the 14th day of the lunar calendar, Hoi An celebrates the full moon with locals placing offerings on their ancestral shrines and burning incense.

Tomorrow will take at extra special significance as this is Tet Trung Thu (Mid Autumn Festival) Local kids form groups and perform incredible Lion Dances in elaborate costumes in the streets of Hoi An before and during the festival. These ‘lions’ will also go into shops and homes and start dancing as a blessing of luck and fortune. It is customary for locals to give ‘lucky money’. It is primarily a festival for children who receive toys, fruit and especially moon-shaped cakes as gifts.

Our night tour: the ‘Streets & Eats Of Hoi An‘ runs every night starting at 5:30pm and we zip along the streets and quieter alleyways on our vintage Vespas just outside the old quarter, stopping frequently to try some incredible local dishes in some fantastic eating spots and restaurants.

Vintage Vespa Hunting in Saigon


We were featured on a television show in Australia: Vintage Hunter. In the show Vintage Hunter, flea market junkie Dominic Johnson-Hill takes us on a journey across Asia to find captivating curios and antiques, both valuable and intriguing. It can be like finding a needle in a haystack, but whatever happens, it’s a road trip that Dominic always gets a kick out of. Flea markets are haunts for colorful characters from all walks of life. As the Vintage Hunter, Dominic gets a different peek at history via its collectors and their prized possessions.


In this episode of Vintage Hunter, Dominic traveled to Saigon looking specifically for a vintage Vespas, and what better place to find one than here. Vespa scooters have been in Saigon since the 1950’s, and when the country closed its doors to foreign influence, the locals were forced to maintain these bikes. In other countries, as the Vespas became outdated, they were discarded as junk. It can be compared to the number of classic American vehicles that you can see driving around in Cuba today.


Dominic had success and he was able to find an authentic Vespa for $1,400 and immediately brought it to Steve at Café Zoom for further inspection.  Steve was able to point out to Dominic what made it authentic and what a bargain he had found with this bike.


Dominic loved Café Zoom and its Vespa theme. After hanging out at the Café with Steve and some of his friends, Dominic hopped on his newly-bought Vespa and Steve took him on a tour of Saigon to show him some of the sights.


After driving through the city and stopping here and there, Dominic was brought to our showroom to see the motorbikes used here at Vietnam Vespa Adventures. Needless to say he was impressed at the number of vintage bikes and that he had a blast with Steve.

A great blog from Henriques Jeanne about our tour

I am sending a ‘shout out’ to Vietnam Vespa Adventures in Ho Chi Minh City for a great ride! I had this tour on my bucket list of ‘things to do’ when we moved to Vietnam and I was not disappointed. I wrote the following review on Tripadvisor…

“My daughter and I took The Insider’s Saigon Day Tour last week and had a ball! Our guide, Dieu, was informative and fun, the drivers were attentive and confident and the sights were fab. We live in Saigon and are experienced tour travellers…this was extra special. We say..skip the taxi, car, bus, van and pop on the back of a Vespa with Vietnam Vespa Adventures…you will not regret it!”

Thank you to the team at Vietnam Vespa Adventures for a great tour!
Well done!!

A nice review from Liz Harding. Thanks a lot Liz.

Vietnam by Vespa
Let me start by saying, this is one of the best things I’ve ever done – I hope this post is able to do the awesomeness of these tours justice!

I first heard about Vietnam Vespa Adventures from a colleague who had been apart of one of their week long tours with her husband. She absolutely raved about their tour, despite her initial reservations, and made sure to drill it into my head as a must-do when she found out I was heading to Vietnam (not that I needed much convincing)….
