Formerly known in the West as Saigon and affectionately referred to as the "Pearl of the Far East," Ho Chi Minh City is a study of old and new, woven and piled together in a fast-paced urban hub.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like War Remnants Museum and Vietnam Silver House. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Pineapple Beach (Bai Dua) and Vung Tau Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Vung Tau (The Vung Tau War Heroes Shrine, Back Beach, & more). There's still lots to do: hunt for treasures at Ben Thanh Market, explore the galleries of Tara & Kys Art Gallery, view the masterpieces at The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre, and take a stroll through Dong Khoi Street.
