Discover the essence of Vietnam as you see the sights of Ho Chi Minh City (formerly called Saigon) on this full-day highlights tour.
Your guided trip includes a visit to the following places:
Reunification Hall
This building housed the executive offices and residence of former President Ngo Dinh Diem, the U.S.-supported leader of Vietnam in the 1960s. In April 1975, the gates were overrun by North Vietnamese tanks and their flag hung on the balcony. Notice that the very same tanks have been installed permanently on the front lawn.
Notre Dame Cathedral
Located in the heart of the city, this cathedral was built by the French in the late 1800s. A large statue of the Virgin Mary greets you as you walk into this neo-Romanesque cathedral, adorned by two tall spires flanking either side.
General Post Office
Designed by Gustav Eiffel, the Post Office is a testament to the French presence in the late 1800s. The look and feel of this grand building is like an elegant railway station.
War Crime Museum
This museum tells the story of war from the Vietnamese perspective. Exhibits include photographs, machinery, and weapons that depict the harsh realities of war.
City Hall
Find out why this is one of the most photographed buildings in Ho Chi Minh City. Constructed in the early 1900s, City Hall is a beautiful example of French colonial architecture.
China Town
Settled in the late 18th century, this labyrinthine section of Ho Chi Minh City bustles with restaurants, temples, exotic stores, and markets.
Binh Tay (Cho Lon) market
This is the main marketplace in China Town, where a great deal of wholesale trading occurs. Experience the commotion of this integral part of the city's daily business.
Thien Hau Temple
One of the most important pagodas in the city, this richly decorated temple is dedicated to Thien Hau, the Goddess of the Sea and patron of sailors. She is said to travel over the oceans on a mat and ride the clouds to wherever she desires.
Ben Thanh market
Established in 1914, this is the oldest market in the city, offering thousands of local and imported products. One of the city's most famous landmarks, everything common to the daily lives of people in Ho Chi Minh can be found here. In the wet market, there is fish, seafood, and flowers.
