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 Couleurs by Rehahn Fine Art Photography - Dong Khoi. Appreciate the collections at War Remnants Museum and Vietnam Silver House. There's much more to do: get a sense of history and politics at The Independence Palace, expand your understanding of the military at Ben Dinh Tunnels, explore the world behind art at Artinus 3D Art Museum, and make a trip to Cu Chi Tunnels.

To find more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Ho Chi Minh City trip planner.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major aiport is Tan Son Nhat International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 41°C in May, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
