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 The Touch of Masters' Hands: The Vietnamese Authentic Cultural Show. Change things up with these side-trips from Ho Chi Minh City: The Robert Taylor Museum Of Worldwide Arms (in Vung Tau) and Buu Long Mountain (in Bien Hoa). Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Cu Chi Tunnels, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, pause for some serene contemplation at Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, and get engrossed in the history at The Independence Palace.

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airport is Tan Son Nhat International Airport. In October in Ho Chi Minh City, expect temperatures between 38°C during the day and 28°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
