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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at War Remnants Museum and Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral. Popular historic sites such as The Independence Palace and Emperor Jade Pagoda are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Ho Chi Minh City side-trips: Bien Hoa (Buu Long Mountain & Long Thanh Golf Club). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Cu Chi Tunnels, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chùa Giác Lâm (Giac Lam Pagoda), and get outside with Suoi Tien.

To see where to stay, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Ho Chi Minh City day trip planner.

In June, daily temperatures in Ho Chi Minh City can reach 38°C, while at night they dip to 29°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
