Ho Chi Minh City

— 4 nights

Pearl of the Far East

Formerly known in the West as Saigon and affectionately referred to as the "Pearl of the Far East," Ho Chi Minh City is a study of old and new, woven and piled together in a fast-paced urban hub.
Shop till you drop at Ben Thanh Market and Artinus 3D Art Museum. Appreciate the collections at War Remnants Museum and Vietnam Silver House. There's lots more to do: get a sense of history and politics at The Independence Palace, deepen your knowledge of military history at Ben Dinh Tunnels, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chùa Giác Lâm (Giac Lam Pagoda), and view the masterpieces at Couleurs by Rehahn Fine Art Photography - Dong Khoi.
