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.
On the 24th (Sun), hunt for treasures at Ben Thanh Market and then get engrossed in the history at War Remnants Museum.

Plan my Ho Chi Minh City trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Manila, Philippines to Ho Chi Minh City is an approximately 6-hour flight. The time zone changes from Philippine Standard Time (PST) to Indochina Time (ICT), which is usually a -1 hour difference. Expect a daytime high around 39°C in February, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sun) so you can travel to Hoi An.
