Ho Chi Minh is the largest city of Vietnam. In this city, you will see the hustle and bustle of Vietnamese life everywhere and there is something invigorating about it all. Contrasting images of the exotic and mundane abound. There are the street markets, where bargains are struck and deals are done; the pavement cafes, where stereo speakers fill the surrounding streets with a melodious thumping beat; and the sleek new cafes and pubs, where tourists chat over beer, pretzels, coffee and croissants. A young office worker maneuvers her Honda Dream through rush-hour traffic, long hair flowing, high heel working the break pedal. The sweating Chinese businessman chats on his cellular phone, cursing his necktie in the tropical heat. Only in Ho Chi Minh City can you find life like that.

Day 1: Itinerary

After breakfast at hotel, our private car will pick up you and start the half day city tour around Saigon via these destinations:


Cho Lon (China Town): with Thien Hau Pagoda, Cho Lon is in District 5 and is a maze of narrow streets, bustling with people. Most of Vietnam\\\'s ethnic Chinese live here and they are the largest single ethnic minority group in the country. Merchants began to settle in Cho Lon in the 1770s, although many ethnic Chinese fled the country in 1975.


Thien Hau Pagoda is one of Cho Lon\\\'s must-sees. It is dedicated to the goddess Thien Hau, protector of the sea. Photographers are spoilt for choice with the ornate decoration inside the pagoda and the statues of Thien Hau. It is popular with worshippers (the air is always heavy with the smell of incense) and there are regular festivals during the lunar calendar

Notre Dame Cathedral: The twin towers of Notre Dame Cathedral have been a familiar landmark in Ho Chi Minh City since the 1880s. In front of the cathedral in a small garden is a delicate statue of the Virgin Mary. The interior of the cathedral is rather plain, unlike most French cathedrals, with no stained glass but it is a cool escape from the heat outside.


Former post office: Across from the Notre Dame Cathedral, the vast Post Office was also built in the late 19th century in European style. The interior has hardly been touched since it was built and is dominated by a huge portrait of Ho Chi Minh. The building always seems busy but most people are just visitors rather than customers.
