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 day-by-day itinerary now includes Binh Tay Market. Step out of Ho Chi Minh City with an excursion to The Robert Taylor Museum Of Worldwide Arms in Vung Tau--about 1h 40 min away. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Cu Chi Tunnels, ponder the world of politics at Central Post Office, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chùa Giác Lâm (Giac Lam Pagoda), and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Tan Son Nhat International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
