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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes i Tour Vietnam - Private Tours. When in Ho Chi Minh City, make a side trip to see Buu Long Mountain in Bien Hoa, approximately 56 minutes away. The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Cu Chi Tunnels, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chùa Giác Lâm (Giac Lam Pagoda), and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
