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.
Escape the urban bustle at Speed Boats Tours and Nature & Wildlife Tours. War Remnants Museum and Galerie Quynh will appeal to museum buffs. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Ba Thien Hau Temple, wander the streets of Pham Ngu Lao Street, look for gifts at Soyn, and view the masterpieces at Vietnam ART Gallery.

To find maps, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Ho Chi Minh City day trip site.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Ho Chi Minh City is an approximately 15.5- hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Tel Aviv to Ho Chi Minh City due to the time zone difference. Expect warmer weather when traveling from Tel Aviv in April: highs in Ho Chi Minh City hover around 41°C, while lows dip to 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to travel to Da Lat.

While often referred to as "City of a Thousand Flowers," "City of a Thousand Pines," and "City of a Thousand Palms," you'd be right in thinking that numbers far greater than a thousand have given Da Lat its reputation as a fertile agricultural heartland.
Start off your visit on the 1st (Fri): take in the architecture and atmosphere at Nha Tho Bao Loc, head outdoors with Pine Track Adventures, and then get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. On the 2nd (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: admire the masterpieces at Lam Dong Museum, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Linh Phuoc Pagoda, and then take an in-depth tour of Da Lat King Palace I.

Plan my Da Lat trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
