Are you having a short time for a tour of Ho Chi Minh City? Then don’t miss a quick trip by scooter or motorbike to explore some best landmarks in southern Vietnam. During my solo trip to Vietnam ( I enjoyed four hours motorbike tour in Ho Chi Minh City with Cricket Tours. The tour guide was Lucas, very cooperative, friendly, and had a fantastic time. I’m glad to be able to explore the city from a locals perspective. This tour also included travel insurance, so no safety issues at all.
Ho Chi Minh City is locally known as Saigon and famous for many years old French colonial landmarks. This city played a vital role during the time of the Vietnam War or the Indochina War. Like Hanoi in Ho Chi Minh City, you’ll see many scooters on the road, and so traffic is more. However, the city is green, having beautiful parks with many years old tall trees, sky bar buildings, street food, coffee shop, and the local market.
During our Ho Chi Minh City day tour, we have crossed many roads, and the popular one was Walking Street, the remote view of Reunification Palace, and City Hall or People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City was excellent.
Some highlighted Ho Chi Minh City tourist attractions are:
1. Jade Emperor Temple
Jade Emperor Temple is a beautiful Chinese temple and built the Chinese community in the 19th century. It is free for all to visit.
2. Notre Dame Cathedral
Beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral looks like the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and known as Mini Asia Notre Dame Cathedral Version. All materials brought from France to build this Romanesque architectural style Cathedral in the 18th century (1863 to 1880).
3. Central Post Office
Ho Chi Minh City Post Office is also known as Saigon Central Post Office and built-in 1886-1891. Central Post Office worked as a communication office during the time of the Indochina War. The interior of the Central Post Office is excellent. You can buy Vietnamese souvenirs and postcards from here.
The entire area of Central Post Office and Notre Dame Cathedral is trendy and touristic. And you’ll also see the building of former American C.I.A Headquarter from this area.
4. Opera House
Beaux-Arts architectural style Opera House is now known as the Municipal Theatre of Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon Municipal Opera House. This beautiful French colonial architecture built in 1897.
5. War Remnants Museum
War Remnants Museum opened for visitors in 1975 and now became one of the most famous museums in Vietnam. This museum showcases exhibits from the Vietnam War and the first Indochina War. Also, it works to support the antiwar movement internationally. The museum admission fee per person is 40,000 VND and opening hours daily from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM.
Mostly I loved to cross beautiful streets in the morning hour and found the walking street is the interesting one. The tour ends up with lunch from Giac Duc Vegetarian restaurant. Four hours Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam city tour costs me just 630.00 VND/30 USD (price varies). I loved the entire, and it was all fun on a budget. Lastly, the temperature is high, so the best time to visit Ho Chi Minh City from December to April.
