Ho Chi Minh City 3 nights
Day 1 Ho Chi Minh City: Formerly known as Saigon, vibrant Ho Chi Minh City is one of Asia's most compelling cities and definitely not to be missed. On arrival you will be met and transferred to your hotel before deciding where to begin your sightseeing. Perhaps opt for a cyclo tour, or if you have a hunger for adventure, hop on the back of a Vespa for an unforgettable tour of the Saigon streets.
Days 2-3 Ho Chi Minh City: Two full days in this fast paced, thriving metropolis. The city's central area, District One, has most of the main shops, restaurants, bars and tourist attractions along with the original French Quarter. The more sedate District Three offers more colonial architecture, parks and wide boulevards while District Five incorporates Chinatown. Highlights in the city include Notre Dame Cathedral, the Reunification Palace, the Jade Emperor Pagoda and the 18th century Thien Hau Temple. No visit to the city is complete without a visit to the extraordinary Cu Chi Tunnels, located just over an hour's drive away. This labyrinth of narrow tunnels stretch for over 120 miles and were used as hideouts by the Vietnamese army during the war.
