Ho Chi Minh City

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.
Get some cultural insight at Ba Thien Hau Temple and People's Committee Building. Step off the beaten path and head to Walking tours and Food Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Fito Museum - Museums of Traditional Vietnamese Medicine & Pharmacy (in Thuan An) and Vung Tau (The Vung Tau War Heroes Shrine, Christ the King, &more). There's much more to do: examine the collection at FITO Museum, delve into the distant past at Wat Chantarangsay, don't miss a visit to Phố đi bộ Nguyễn Huệ, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sri Thenday Yuttha Panin Temple.

For maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Ho Chi Minh City vacation planner.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Ho Chi Minh City. In June, daytime highs in Ho Chi Minh City are °C, while nighttime lows are °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) early enough to travel to Hanoi.

The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi has bounded back from the effects of war, and today serves as a bustling commercial and cultural hub bursting at the seams.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Vietnamese Women's Museum and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Chua Tran Quoc and Vietnam National Museum of Nature are good opportunities to explore the local culture. And it doesn't end there: see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour, push the limits with an extreme tour, make a trip to Hanoi Ceramic Mosaic Mural, and take in the exciting artwork at Bui Mai Hien Gallery.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Hanoi trip itinerary site.

You can fly from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi in 5 hours. Other options are to drive; or take a train. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
