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.
Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral and The Independence Palace are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Ba Thien Hau Temple and Chua Van Phat - Temple of Ten Thousand Buddhas. On the 3rd (Tue), spend a thrilling day on the water with a speed boat tour. Spend the 5th (Thu) on your motorcycle at Countryside Adventures. The adventure continues: hunt for treasures at Ben Thanh Market, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, view the masterpieces at Couleurs by Rehahn Fine Art Photography - Dong Khoi, and take an in-depth tour of War Remnants Museum.

To find where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Ho Chi Minh City online tour planner .

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airport is Tan Son Nhat International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Ho Chi Minh City are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
