Full description
Explore Ho Chi Minh City on a guided half-day tour and discover the most interesting cultural sights in town. After being picked up from your hotel or the central meeting point, kick things off with a visit to the Reunification Palace, a beautifully preserved building that was once home to the President of the Republic of Vietnam. Next, stop off at the War Remnants Museum and explore a vast array of artifacts and photographs documenting the second Indochina war. Afterwards, visit the Notre Dame Cathedral of Saigon and Saigon Central Post Office. Erected towards the end of the 18th century, the old post office is one of the finest examples of classical French colonial architecture. Continue on to Jade Emperor Pagoda, an ancient temple built in the Chinese mode replete with bright decorative motifs. To finish things off, visit a local market where you can practice your haggling skills while shopping for souvenirs. Discover local life and culture and find some of the friendliest and liveliest vibes of the city here before returning to your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.
