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.
Step out of Ho Chi Minh City to go to Vung Tau and see The Robert Taylor Museum Of Worldwide Arms, which is approximately 1h 40 min away. Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Cu Chi Tunnels, get out on two wheels at Countryside Adventures, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, and hunt for treasures at Ben Thanh Market.

For maps, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, read our Ho Chi Minh City road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Tan Son Nhat International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
