THIEN HAU TEMPLE

Cantonese fishermen built this Chinese temple, dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea, at the end of the 18th century. The altar for the Goddess features three statues of the goddess Thien Hau. Votive paper offerings are burned in a large furnace at the entrance.

NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL

Built between 1877 and 1883, Notre Dame Cathedral, with her two 40 meter towers topped with iron spires is one of Ho Chi Minh City's major landmarks. It is built in a neo-Romanesque form. The cathedral's red bricks and colored glass windows were imported from France. The cathedral was consecrated in 1962. Full services in both Vietnamese and English are held every Sunday morning.

SAIGON POST OFFICE

Located next to Notre Dame is Saigon's French-styled post office. Built between 1886 and 1891, the ochre-colored building has a glass canopy, ceiling fans, and enormous wall maps of "Saigon et Ses Environs". At the far end of the arched building is a large portrait of Ho Chi Minh.

BEN THANH MARKET

Ben Thanh is the largest market in Ho Chi Minh City. Shopkeepers sell a wide variety of local and imported products ranging from garments and textiles to handicrafts, flowers, and vegetables. The market was finished in 1914. The French-style building has a distinctive clock tower at its entrance.

WAR REMNANTS MUSEUM

This is a poignant display of the futility of war. Some of the black and white photography in the ‘Requiem’ exhibit is particularly touching; dedicated to both foreign and Vietnamese journalists and photographers who perished during the conflict. The courtyard outside contains the spoils of war, namely rusting jets, tanks and cannons.

REUNIFICATION PALACE

(Formerly the Presidential Palace)
Originally built for the French Governor-General of Indochina in 1868 the Norodom Palace as it was then known was abandoned in 1880 when government services moved to Hanoi. When the Government of South Vietnam was established in 1954, the palace became the luxurious residence of President Diem. In 1963, the palace was abandoned after a renegade pilot in the South Vietnamese army bombed and strafed the building. The current structure was opened in 1966. One of the most striking images of the War was the sight of North Vietnamese tank 843 crashing through the palace gates marking a symbolic end to the conflict in Indochina. On a tour of the palace one can visit underground tunnels and bunkers filled with radio equipment and maps left virtually untouched since 1975.

CHINATOWN – CHO LON

The largest Chinatown in Vietnam is Cholon, in district 5 and 6 of Ho Chi Minh City. Cholon’s current status was the result of political developments in the 18th and 19th centuries. The central market in Cholon is the Binh Tay market offering a wide range of products from food to clothing to daily necessities. It is also a wholesaler market and a tourist attraction. Another indication of Chinese activities in Cholon is the number of shops specializing in Chinese cultural and ritual items like religious objects and lion dance equipments. Today as modern buildings emerged in Cholon, the historical clan associations, temples and monasteries served as markers of history, reflect the relationship between the Chinese population and the state and continue in their roles as centers of Chinese cultural activities.

CON PHUNG (Phoenix Island)

It is situated on an island emerging from the middle of the Tien River, and has an area of 28 ha. Visitors can enjoy an interesting excursion on the way to the island by boat. Visitors can see original architectural works of the site of the holy land of the Coconut Religion. In Con Phung there is also a handicraft village producing furniture with materials taken from the coconut tree, and families raising bees for honey from the longan flower. The product is sold on the spot to visitors. It is also known as the Island of the Coconut Monk after a patriotic monk named Ong Dao Dua lived and founded his own sect here.


MEKONG FOLKSONG (DON CA TAI TU)

The performance of this kind is quite popular among the Mekong dwellers. It would be a miss of identities of the Mekong tour without the show.

COCONUT CANDY MANUFACTURERS

Coconut candy is the candy that made by coconut milk and coconut cream which symbolize for "Land of coconut".

CU CHI TUNNEL

Factors that make Ho Chi Minh City's exceptional the contrast between the old and the new: the country’s business center, and many areas under development, and many places that are well preserved from earlier eras such as Cu Chi underground tunnels. Cu Chi tunnels is about one-hour drive from Ho Chi Minh City. The complex gives visitors a glimpse of the extraordinary fighting spirit of the Vietnamese people – the same spirit that vanquished the French at Dien Bien Phu in 1954. The connecting tunnels are a claustrophobic 50 centimetres to 1 metre wide – just enough for a person to squeeze through, though some of have been modified to accommodate visitors.

Experience the world of the Cu Chi freedom fighters with a visit to their famous tunnel system. This network of over 200 km of tunnels became legendary during the 1960's when they played a vital part in the American War, allowing the Viet Cong to control a large rural area close to Ho Chi Minh City. In their heyday, the tunnels were functioning underground cities.

This is an amazing complex of underground tunnels used during the Vietnam war. This extraordinary underground maze has several levels of tunnels with a total length of almost 250 kilometres. The soil above is between 3 and 4 metres thick, allowing a 50-ton tank to pass overhead without causing the tunnels to collapse.

The network had accommodation, meeting rooms, mess halls, hospitals, an operating office, and even a mini cinema for an underground army of Viet Cong guerrillas who emerged from concealed trapdoors to fight and gradually grind down the will of the French and Americans with their vastly super firepower.

VUNG TAU BEACH

Vung Tau was known as Cap Saint-Jacques under French occupation. It is just 125 km southeast of Ho Chi Minh City . Once this seaside resort was a popular beach destination for French and American service man. Vung Ttau is one of the popular seaside resorts of Vietnam with sandy beaches, transparent warm blue water all the year round.
