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.
Go for a jaunt from Ho Chi Minh City to Thu Dau Mot to see Hoi Khanh Pagoda about 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Cu Chi Tunnels, get engrossed in the history at War Remnants Museum, admire the striking features of Central Post Office, and indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink.

For traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Ho Chi Minh City trip site.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Ho Chi Minh City. In May, plan for daily highs up to 41°C, and evening lows to 30°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Tue) so you can travel to Hanoi.

The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi has bounded back from the effects of war, and today serves as a bustling commercial and cultural hub bursting at the seams.
Hanoi is known for historic sites, spas, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: stop by Old Quarter, get outside with Outdoor Activities, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

To plan Hanoi vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Traveling by flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight, taxi, and train; or drive. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
