HCMC & Departure

With over 11 million citizens and five million motorbikes, Ho Chi Minh city is a bustling city that never sleeps. Despite its modernity, it maintains a strong link to the past and our walking tour takes in some of the city’s most historic landmarks. Transfer to Dong Khoi Street downtown to visit some of the beautiful French colonial-era buildings from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Appreciate the splendidly restored exteriors of the Saigon Opera House and the Notre Dame Cathedral, a red brick edifice with twin spires constructed from materials imported from France (entrance is only permitted when no services are being performed). Then head across the square to the Central Post Office, completed in 1891. A short drive away is the former Presidential Palace, the headquarters of the Saigon Government during the American War. Continue to the elegant City Hall (the former Hotel de Ville) which is one of the city’s most stunning colonial monuments especially when at night.

Experience Ho Chi Minh’s famed street coffee culture while your guide provides insights into daily life in Saigon.

Afternoon, visit The War Remnants Museum for a vivid perspective of the American War through the eyes of the Vietnamese. (Please note that the displays may upset you). Afterwards, our guide and driver will bring you to Chinatown to visit the beautiful Thien Hau Pagoda, built by the Cantonese community in the early 19th century to honour the Goddess of the Sea. Take time to make a wish, write it on a small card and attach it to one of the incense coils according to local custom. Continue your visit to FITO, the first museum of traditional medicine in Vietnam, offering an insightful look into the history and application of traditional medicine in everyday life before driving to the airport for your next flight.
