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.
Ho Chi Minh City is known for nightlife, museums, and adventure. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: make a trip to Cu Chi Tunnels, pause for some serene contemplation at Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, ponder the world of politics at Central Post Office, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
