Ho Chi Minh City

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.
Kick off your visit on the 28th (Thu): make a trip to Cu Chi Tunnels, then pause for some serene contemplation at Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, then get a sense of history and politics at Central Post Office, and finally take an in-depth tour of War Remnants Museum.

For maps, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, read our Ho Chi Minh City trip planning tool.

Expect a daytime high around 41°C in May, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
