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.
Start off your visit on the 2nd (Sun): get a sense of history and politics at The Independence Palace, get a sense of history and politics at Central Post Office, pause for some serene contemplation at Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, then pause for some photo ops at Statue of Avalokiteshvara, and finally make a trip to Cu Chi Tunnels. On the next day, get engrossed in the history at War Remnants Museum, then hunt for treasures at Ben Thanh Market, and then indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour.
