Ho Chi Minh City

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.
Start off your visit on the 29th (Tue): look for gifts at Thuy Design House and then don't miss a visit to Phố đi bộ Nguyễn Huệ. Keep things going the next day: take in the spiritual surroundings of Emperor Jade Pagoda, then take in the local highlights with Walking tours, then enjoy breathtaking views from Bitexco Financial Tower, and finally view the masterpieces at Couleurs by Rehahn Fine Art Photography - Dong Khoi.

Indisputably one of Vietnam's most atmospheric destinations, Hoi An contains a World Heritage-listed old town boasting over 2,000 years of culture and history.

While most Southeast Asian countries have at least one booming metropolis, none seem to bustle nearly throughout like Vietnam does. While busy locals zoom about on motorbikes, visitors fill their Vietnam vacations with a mix of cultural sightseeing and exploring the landscape. Big cities and towns boast colonial architecture, open-air markets, outstanding spa complexes, and modern restaurants. The country also features over 3,200 km (2,000 mi) of coastline dotted with sandy bays that attract scuba divers and kitesurfers. Away from busy urban centers, a tour of Vietnam reveals a rural landscape of lush rice paddies, jagged mountain peaks, and timeless villages unspoiled by the outside world.
