Saigon, also known as Ho Chi Minh City, is one of the busiest cities in Asia. The streets are bustling with scooters, bicycles, market traders, people, and street food stalls. The city has much to offer with its many shops, markets and restaurants, but there are also an abundance of fascinating cultural relics, museums and temples to discover. Outside of the city are the intriguing Cu Chi Tunnels, where former Viet Cong guerrillas now guide visitors through the remarkable underground labyrinth. Saigon is also the gateway to the fascinating Mekong Delta region, a network of waterways, rivers and canals where river life can be experienced up close.
The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi is smaller than Saigon and has a less hurried feel, and its elegant wide tree-lined streets are home to many colonial style buildings. The Old Quarter has a maze of winding alleys, housing a wealth of food stalls and old merchant stores. There are many cultural relics to explore including the Presidential Palace and curious One Pillar Pagoda dating back to the 11th century. The great Confucian Temple of Literature, the History Museum and the exquisite Ngoc Son Pagoda are also sights not to be missed.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hoi An, is ideal to explore on foot, with its narrow, beautifully preserved streets, exquisite architecture and lanes. This charming town is a delightful place to wander at your own pace and explore the merchant houses and interesting stalls and shops. See ancient family temples, the 16th century Japanese Covered Bridge and the splendid Phung Hung House.
