1. 5 Must-See City Private Tour: German/English-Speaking Guide
At 8:30 AM, start your day with a convenient hotel pick-up that transfers you to your first destination: the War Remnants Museum. This museum presents an important but one-sided history of the appalling legacy of the decades of war that have ravaged Vietnam. At 9:30 AM, head to China Town to visit Binh Tay market. Its center is busy, crowded and messy with small aisles selling all manner of goods. This market sometimes disappoints tourists when compared to other markets in Ho Chi Minh as the products are not that varied, but the main draw to Cholon is not to shop but to enjoy the authentic Chinese atmosphere that has existed here for hundreds of years. At noon, you'll head to a local restaurant for lunch where you will be served delicious Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup). Spend the rest of the day visiting important landmarks. Start with the Reunification Palace, which was the residence and workplace of the President of South Vietnam until the end of the war in April 1975. Continue on to the Notre Dame Cathedral, the General Post Office, French colonial structures and a lacquer workshop. Finish your day with a convenient drop off to your hotel.
