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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at War Remnants Museum and Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral. The Independence Palace and Chùa Giác Lâm (Giac Lam Pagoda) will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Ho Chi Minh City to go to Tay Ninh and see Cao Dai Temple, which is approximately 1h 35 min away. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Cu Chi Tunnels, ponder the world of politics at Central Post Office, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ba Thien Hau Temple, and admire the landmark architecture of Chua Van Phat - Temple of Ten Thousand Buddhas.
