Ho Chi Minh is the modern, high octane, chaotic, vibrant epicenter of modern Vietnam. The city is a flurry of sights and sounds, with glistening modern buildings, sleek modern bars and luxury shopping, sitting alongside historic pagodas and temples. Ho Chi Minh also offers a remarkably opportunity to learn more about the Vietnam War, and the country’s Communist past, with the Reunification Palace, and the War Remnants Museum both popular historical hot spots.
Our guides recommend watching buzzing city life go by at a street side café. For those with more time, a trip to the Cu Chi tunnels gives an incredible insight into the immense network of connecting underground tunnels, which were dug to protect from American bombing during the Vietnam War.
