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.
Head to Ben Thanh Market and Vietnam Silver Housefor plenty of shopping. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like War Remnants Museum and Emperor Jade Pagoda. When in Ho Chi Minh City, make a side trip to see Buu Long Mountain in Bien Hoa, approximately 56 minutes away. Spend the 9th (Thu) on your motorcycle at Countryside Adventures. Make the 13th (Mon) a memorable day with a climbing tour. Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Cu Chi Tunnels, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, stop by Ninh Khuong Hand Embroidery, and look for all kinds of wild species at Dong Nai Culture And Nature Reserve.
