While living in Saigon, you may need all material to get ready to ride a motorbike. Either to get around the city and get prepared for the rainy season or to get on road trip with your motorbike. So here are 3 places to get what you need.
This small motorbike shop on 382/6 Nguyen Thi Minh Khai street offers quality stuff to ride a motorbike. There, you will find fancy helmet from 4,000,000 to 11,000,000 VND but also gloves for 150,000 – 250,000 VND, helmet protection mask and first of all, rainy coat set. The rainy protection set is a pant and a coat and costs 300,000 VND. It is thick enough to well protect you from the heavy rain and its big enough to put it over your clothes.
This shop is located on 214 Vo Van Tan in district 3. On the first floor, you will find high-quality motorbike gear. They offer helmet, riding jacket, protectors and accessories. You can order directly on their website. The rainy set starts at 570,000 VND and offers a better quality. You can also find small protection bags for your GPS/Phone, which is awesome and safer if you need to get directions from it.
This is a quite famous place where to get a helmet. It is not as strong as what you could find at Viet fullface or Wild Racer, but it’s stronger than what you can find on the street. Prices are also very reasonable. Count roughly 520,000 VND for a 3/4 helmet. They also sell helmet for kids.
