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.
Step out of Ho Chi Minh City to go to Bien Hoa and see Buu Long Mountain, which is approximately 56 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Cu Chi Tunnels, get your game on at Jump Arena, hunt for treasures at Ben Thanh Market, and do some two-wheel cruising with Countryside Adventures.

For ratings, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Ho Chi Minh City route maker website .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Tan Son Nhat International Airport. In September in Ho Chi Minh City, expect temperatures between 38°C during the day and 28°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
