Full description
Immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan atmosphere of Ho Chi Minh City on this full-day tour. Full of street vendors and glitzy, western-style bars, you will see all the major attractions from the history of Saigon - as the city was formerly known. Start at the Reunification Palace, where the “American War’” officially ended a tank of the North Vietnamese Army crashed through the gates of what was, at the time, the residence of President of the Republic of Vietnam. Go to the War Remnants Museum to see poignant displays, including the black and white photographs of the “Requiem” exhibit, dedicated to foreign and Vietnamese journalists and photographers who perished during the conflict. Continue to Notre Dame Cathedral and the Old Post Office, two of the finest examples of French colonial architecture in the city. After a lunch at the renowned Pho 2000, near bustling Ben Thanh Market, spend the afternoon at the 18th-century Giac Lam Pagoda, Saigon’s oldest pagoda temple. Admire the myriad mini-Buddhas and amazing Tree of Wandering Souls. Then, end your tour at Thien Hau Pagoda and the Cholon district, home to the city’s 400,000 Chinese residents, many beautiful temples and pagodas, and the immense Binh Tay Market.
