Ho Chi Minh city is an excellent choice of destination. There are plenty of sites to see and attractions to visit all around the city.
If you’re not familiar with Ho Chi Minh City, you should start with a guided city tour. There are various options from half-day to full-day excursions, depending on how much of the city you’d like to see and how long you’d like to spend in the city. Many tours visit the Ben Thah Market, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Reunification Palace. If you’d prefer to be taken around the city, visiting your favourite sights and attractions, I recommend you book a hop-on hop-off bus tour. Here you have the best of both worlds – a guided tour and the freedom to hop on and off as you please.
If you’re a fan of Vietnamese cuisine, I highly recommend a food tour. There are a variety of options to choose from during the night and day. Many excursions are also run on a motorbike which is a bucket list experience in itself. Try street food recommended by locals and visit the key food hubs around the city.
Another popular attraction is the Chi Chi tunnels and Saigon underground. These are best explored by guided tour so you can learn about Vietnam’s war history. You’ll also get the chance to see remnants of the war all around the city, from holding cells to propaganda press centers.
