Ho Chi Minh city, known to many as Saigon, once had a harrowing reputation for its role in the Vietnam war, but has since transformed into the metropolitan and cultural epicenter of Vietnam. Located at the Mekong River delta, its riverfront access makes it a hub for our most popular Vietnam river cruises. As you explore this ancient city, you will see highlights of French & Chinese culture reflected in the stunning architecture. In fact, some of the most famous buildings & destinations of the city include: Jade Emperor Pagoda, Reunification Palace, the XQ embroidery workshop & the Ben Thanh artisan market, and the impressive Central Post Office. It also provides access to the winding network of man-made Cu Chi tunnels, which played an important role in the war for independence. Biking is a great way to explore the region.

Highlights of Ho Chi Minh City
The capital city of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City has left its dark history as a wartime hub behind in exchange for a new identity as a modern city in Asia. A tour of this city, formerly known as Saigon, will acquaint travelers with some of the major local attractions, including perhaps:
  • The impressive Jade Emperor Pagoda
  • Reunification Palace, built atop the former site of Norodom Palace.
  • The French style Notre Dame Cathedral.
  • The Historic Central Post Ofice
  • An embroidery workshop
  • The Ben Thanh handicraft market (perfect for souvenir shopping).
  • The haunting Cu Chi tunnels, which served as a secret tunnel for North Vietnamese troops to gain access into South Vietnam. 
This is also the starting point for many Mekong River Cruises
