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.
On the 28th (Fri), savor the flavors at Food & Drink, hunt for treasures at Ben Thanh Market, then admire the striking features of Central Post Office, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral. Here are some ideas for day two: make a trip to Cu Chi Tunnels, get a sense of history and politics at The Independence Palace, and then get engrossed in the history at War Remnants Museum.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Ho Chi Minh City road trip planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Tan Son Nhat International Airport. June in Ho Chi Minh City sees daily highs of 38°C and lows of 29°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
