Vibrant Ho Chi Minh City

Mekong Delta

Mekong Delta

We have been in historical city Ho Chi Minh for around 4 days with family friends in December. There are many places to visit around city but I couldn’t stop myself to visit 3 places which are specially child friendly as we were accompanied by a super cool baby.Best way to reach city from international airport is prepaid taxi costing around 180,000 Dong.We booked hotel near Airport due to late night flight but I recommend others to stay in District 1 for easy access to most of sightseeing attractions.We took Chu chi tunnels tour and Mekong delta day tour with The Sinh Tourist company.

First day

Mekong delta (Cai Be Vinh Long): Nice day tour with english speaking tour guide. What you get what you paid for. It’s a group tour for those people who don’t have enough time to explore mekong delta. Trip Advisor review link 

Second day

Cu Chi Tunnels: We took morning half day tour to visit Cu Chi.This place rewinds the history of Vietnamese people during war and show how they planned fight in mekong region.

Ben Thanh Market: Evening half we went ben thanh to buy souvenirs. This place really check your bargaining skills. I was surprise people have great interest in Indian and Indian TV serials.

Tips: Take one round to see what you want to buy with what people are offering you, even there is a fix rate line inside market to give you fair idea about max price.

Third day

Ho chi Minh local: You can consider Saigon Central Post Office , war museum and Reunification Palace for a full day itinerary for your last day or just rest with visiting local place and eat.
