Ho Chi Minh City
The Ho Chi Minh City, which is formerly called Saigon, is actually the most populated and known areas in the country. This city is full of people from different walks of life. They are not just the foreigners, but locals as well. They come here to work and do business. Anyway, this city is very accessible and most tourists stay here before going to different spots.
While wandering in the city, you may visit the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum, which are both symbolic places during the wars. These destinations contributed greatly to the history of the country. If you would like to know more about the country, then you better check the exhibits displayed.
It is also a city, where you can witness great French architectural designs. These include the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office. These buildings were constructed during the French colonization. Since this is a city, then expect to experience nightlife and meet people along the streets for various activities.
The Cu Chi Tunnels in Ho Chi Minh city
Well, if you want to experience how it feels like during the Vietnam Wars, then it would be nice to visit the tunnels. This is where the people and the Viet Cong soldiers hid during the wars. This place also served as a hospital for them. They lived under the ground and kept themselves safe there.
Today, if you are going to check the tunnels, you can find there some weapons and transportations, used during the wars. You will also find there an exhibit or photos to show how life was that time. Something that you would also enjoy here is to play the gun shooting, just to experience how it is to shoot. We recommand you choose a tour instead of going to this place yourself because of its adventurous nature 🙂
The Mekong Delta
From a lively city, let’s move to a countryside destination. The Mekong Delta is an amazing tourist spot, where you can cruise along the small canals of the river. Here, you can have a great view of the rice paddies and water that is surrounded by coconut trees.
The houses are also surrounded by the river, so you can find most of the villagers using boats as their means of transportation. Check how to book a best local company to Mekong Delta: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1CRuucdmPVsn3srsQxHa5bo9PoGIkziFm
Something that you will surely enjoy here is the floating market. Do you know that most of the villagers are farmers and merchants? They sell crops and food, they carry these on the boat. They wake up early in the morning to start selling and leave the river when the customers have gone home.
Another thing that you would surely want to visit is the Cat Tien National Park. This is where wildlife and endangered species are. I guess, this is also a great place to experience the beauty of nature. This is something that you cannot usually find in the city. So, you would surely treasure your stay and exploration. Anyway, it would be best, if you are going to visit the park with a guide. It is just for you to consider your safety as well as to enjoy more the place.
