Beautiful cycling day with The Hive – Ho Chi Minh city cycling tour

This past weekend, Jackfruit Adventure organized an exclusive cycling adventure for The Hive Ho Chi Minh’s team members, offering a unique glimpse into the lesser-known quarters of Ho Chi Minh City through a city cycling tour.
For those unfamiliar with The Hive, it encompasses two elegantly crafted workspaces nestled in the vibrant neighborhoods of Thao Dien and District 1. The Hive stands as a beacon for fostering connections and nurturing innovative ideas. Entrepreneurs, freelancers, and visionaries seeking a collaborative workspace are warmly invited to join The Hive’s community.
Membership at The Hive means integration into Asia’s most vibrant coworking network. With locations spanning Vietnam, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Taipei, Tokyo, Melbourne, and Singapore, members can effortlessly transition between cities, utilizing any Hive space for work or meetings.
At Jackfruit, we recognize that despite residing in Ho Chi Minh City, many expatriates’ local knowledge remains confined to their immediate surroundings, often limited to the Thao Dien area of District 2. To bridge this gap, we curated a cycling tour specifically for The Hive’s members. This 20 km, four-hour journey meanders through the eclectic districts of 4 and 5, each with its distinct character and narrative. Our aim is to enrich your understanding of the city with insider insights, fostering a deeper connection to the vibrant metropolis you call home.

This district boasts the highest population density in the city, which contributes to its dynamic atmosphere and the kaleidoscope of hues that define its narrow passageways.
