Among many wonders, must-sees include the Reunification Palace, the overflowing Ben Thanh market, War Remnants Museum, and Notre Dame Cathedral which captures the climate of French colonial times in Saigon. Take a journey out of the town to the world famous Cu Chi Tunnels where thousands of Vietnamese people lived underground during wartime period.

A far cry away from Saigon's maniacal violence, Hoi An's small fishing town located on a spectacular riverside boasts white sands and aquamarine waters from just little away. The town used to be a major international port and even today, evidence of its majesty remains.

Scrambling with tailors on every street corner and markets scattered in impressive French buildings, you can buy the finest silk goods. It is perfect for a touch of rest and refreshment after a tour to rushing Saigon. You can also try Cham Island diving or immerse yourself in the culture, and enjoy a unique cultural experience where you can learn how to catch fish and line a basket boat with local fisherman through the coconut palm trees.
