Ho Chi Minh City's War Remnants Museum initially opened to the public in 1975. It was formerly known as the 'Museum of American War Crimes,' and it serves as a chilling reminder of the long and cruel Vietnam War. Photographs and military equipment from the United States are on show. There's a helicopter equipped with rocket launchers, a tank, a fighter jet, and a single-seat assault plane. A conventional bomb weighing 6,800kg is also seen. Between 1945 and 1975, American forces employed these weapons against the Vietnamese.
The Reunification Palace, which used to be the house of the President of the Republic of Vietnam, will be the first stop on your trip. When a North Vietnamese soldier entered this structure with a red flag in his hand on April 30, 1975, the entire world knew the Vietnam War had ended.
The Notre Dame Cathedral in Saigon, erected by French colonists in the late 1880s, is one of the few remaining strongholds of Catholicism in mostly Buddhist Vietnam. The name Notre Dame was given after the erection of the statue 'Peaceful Notre Dame' in 1959 in Paris Square. The Vatican elevated the Cathedral to the status of a basilica in 1962, giving it the formal name of Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica.
The Central Post Office in Ho Chi Minh City is a wonderfully maintained French colonial relic and maybe the greatest post office in Southeast Asia. The two cultural attractions, located next door to Notre Dame Cathedral, may be viewed together and allow tourists to envision life in Vietnam under the Indochinese Empire. Alfred Foulhoux designed the structure, which has arched windows and wooden shutters, much as it would have in its heyday in the late 1800s.
Ben Thanh Market in District 1 of Ho Chi Minh City is a fantastic destination to buy local handicrafts, branded items, Vietnamese art, and other gifts. Inside the market, you'll discover food stalls where you can sample hawker-style Vietnamese cuisine or simply cool off with a cold drink.
14:30: Return to the meeting point at the Port Exit Gate.
End of Trip. See you again.
