What You'll Do
  • Experience vibrant Ho Chi Minh City on a sightseeing shore excursion
  • See the Reunification Palace, the War Remnants Museum, and examples of French colonial architecture
  • Take a cyclo tour and enjoy the city at a leisurely pace
Overview
When your ship docks at Phu My port you’ll head out on a private shore excursion to discover the top attractions in Ho Chi Minh City. Admire French colonial architecture, visit the War Remnants Museum, and take a relaxing cyclo tour through the city.
What to Expect
Your private full-day shore excursion begins with a pick-up at the port and a 2-hour drive into Ho Chi Minh City, in air-conditioned comfort.

Experience Ho Chi Minh City by foot and from the seat of a cyclo. With a combination of foot power and pedal power, you'll see the classic sights and quintessential markets of Saigon, and more.

Start out at 2 of the city’s landmarks, the General Post Office and Notre Dame Cathedral. The cathedral was built by the French and both structures are fine examples of architecture from the colonial period.

Your city tour will take you past the Reunification Palace, previously known the Presidential Palace, and the site of the official surrender of the South Vietnamese on 30 April 1975.

From here you’ll continue to the War Remnants Museum, which displays old military equipment and other related items from the Vietnam War. In the courtyard you’ll see some larger exhibits including a F5A fighter and a UH1-Huey helicopter.

Next you'll embark on a cyclo tour of Ho Chi Minh City. A cyclo is a traditional means of transport that’s a 3-wheeled bicycle with a carriage at the front for passengers. Your driver will use pedal power to push you along, giving you the opportunity to take in the sights and sounds of the city without the barrier of a car’s windows.

You’ll head up Hai Ba Trung just past the pink church to Tan Dinh market. This isn’t a stop to buy souvenirs or clothes, but to experience a genuine suburban wet market. This is where the local housewives come to do their daily shopping and stop for gossip with their neighbors, making it a real Vietnamese experience.

Hop back on the cyclo and head to Tao Dan park before bidding the cyclo goodbye and enjoying a short walk to Ho Chi Minh City’s iconic and authentic Ben Thanh market. With its unmistakable clock tower, the market has long been a staple of the city and is not to be missed.

At the end of the tour you’ll be free to continue exploring Ben Thanh market, or your guide will assist you with suggestions for further exploration before the ride back to your cruise ship port.
