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 museums, nightlife, shopping, adventure, and spas. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: make a trip to Cu Chi Tunnels, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, get a sense of history and politics at The Independence Palace, and paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour.

To see reviews, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Ho Chi Minh City day trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Tan Son Nhat International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in December, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
