Visit the city highlights in Ho Chi Minh City, and then have lunch at the local restaurant.
The Notre Dame Cathedral in Saigon, also known as the 'Paris of the East,' you'll see the distinctive twin towers of the Notre Dame Cathedral, built with bricks imported from Marseille, France, and stop by the historic Post Office to capture some great photographs of Vietnam's large, contemporary metropolis.
The Reunification Palace, The communist Vietnamese won independence during the "Fall of Saigon" in 1975. Many attractions harken back to that era. The Reunification Palace (formerly the Presidential Palace) is a fascinating monstrosity built with Soviet aid in the 1960s. The tank that exploded through its gates on April 30, 1975, representing 'The Fall,' still stands in the front yard.
The War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City initially became accessible to the public in 1975. It was once known as the 'Museum of American War Crimes,' and it serves as a somber reminder of the lengthy and heinous Vietnam War. Photos and military equipment from the United States are on show. A rocket-launching helicopter, a tank, a fighter jet, and a single-seat assault plane are all present. There is also a conventional bomb measuring 6,800kg visible. Between 1945 and 1975, American forces employed these weapons against the Vietnamese.
The Central Post Office in Ho Chi Minh City is a beautifully preserved French colonial artifact and maybe the best post office in Southeast Asia. The two cultural sites, which are located near Notre Dame Cathedral, may be seen together and allow visitors to imagine life in Vietnam under the Indochinese Empire. The structure, built by Alfred Foulhoux, has arched windows and wooden shutters, much as it would have in its heyday in the late 1800s.
Ben Thanh Market, Your unforgettable tour of Saigon will allow you to view the best of the city without any stress. The aroma of cuisine and the thrill of bustling citizens filling the streets will entice you to dive into Saigon and beat your own rhythm. If time allows, you will get the opportunity to engage with local merchants and learn how to barter for gifts in Vietnam in Ben Thanh market.
14:30: Return to the Hotel.
