Ho Chi Minh City

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 a sense of the local culture at Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral and Chùa Giác Lâm (Giac Lam Pagoda). Do your shopping at Ben Thanh Market and Thuy Design House. There's much more to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, stop by Phuongnam Lacquerware, browse the eclectic array of goods at Binh Tay Market, and get a sense of history and politics at The Independence Palace.

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

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Tan Son Nhat International Airport. In October, daytime highs in Ho Chi Minh City are 38°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
