Day 1 – Ho Chi Minh Arrival –> Ben Tanh Market –> Water Puppet Show
Day 2 – Cu Chi Tunnels + Ho Chi Minh City tour
Day 3 – Cai Be Vinh Long tour
Day 4 – Ho Chi Minh –> Kuala Lumpur
Frankly, 4 days in Ho Chi Minh is more than enough for me. But if you really have several days to spend in Vietnam, I do suggest Mui Ne or Dalat for beach & sand dunes!
If you want to find out about Ben Tanh Market or Water Puppet Show, you can find the information here at my previous post –> A Budget 4 Days in Ho Chi Minh
I booked all the tours from The Sinh Tourist website.
Cu Chi Tunnels
Cu Chi Tunnel is worth visiting because of all the stories behind the tunnels. But if you’re expecting something special, you may have to opt out.
But it’s quite interesting and amazing to believe that there are people actually lives in the tunnels! It’s definitely different from the one that I went in Cappadocia, Turkey.
This is what the people eat back then during the war time, it’s something from the tree? But it taste like Ubi (Potatoes) 😀
You can choose to enter the tunnels, it’s about 100 meters long? But no worries as between 20, 40, 60, 80 meters you can exit.
WARNING: The tunnels is really really slender.
Ho Chi Minh City Tour
We were supposed to take the mini bus for a half day tour around Ho Chi Minh, but then we missed our mini tour bus! So what we decided to walked around and do the sightseeing on our own and eventually we met our mini tour bus at the last stop & catch the mini tour bus back to Sinh Tourist office. 😀
So these are the few places that you can visit in Ho Chi Minh City:
- Notre Dome Cathedral
- General Post Office
- Reunification Palace
- War Remnants Museum
As you can see from the map above, all 4 sights are actually few streets away, so it’s doable by foot, just get a map from your Hotel! Notre Dome Cathedral & General Post Office is just next to each other, so you can visit both at the same time.
Notre Dome Catheral
General Post Office
War Remnants Museum
War Remnants Museum is quite interesting to visit, it primarily contains exhibits relating to the Vietnam War, but also includes many exhibits relating to the first Indochina War involving the French colonialists.
CAI BE VINH LONG
Crossing the roads in Ho Chi Minh is pretty challenging! HAVE FUNS! xD
