THINGS TO DO IN SAIGON | Top Attractions in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

This travel video highlights the best things to do while visiting Saigon along with all of the top attractions one should potentially consider when traveling or touring around Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. As one of the most in your face and cocky cities in all of SE Asia (let alone Vietnam) Saigon is best described as functionally chaotic. Taking the time to properly explore the city is an absolute must. The following is a list of seven things to try before you leave the city limits:

Olympus OM-D E-M5 II:
Canon G7X:
Olympus 14-150mm II Lens:
Rode Video Mic GO:
Joby Gorilla Pod:
SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro:




1) Buy Quirky Travel Souvenirs

Vietnam has more quirky travel souvenirs than just about any other country I’ve ever visited. From Weasel coffee (that’s been pooped out) to snake wine this nation has it all. Come home armed with presents that will either shock or make your friends laugh out loud.

2) Visit the War Remnants Museum

The War Remnants museum is the most somber attraction on this list. The war itself was full of atrocities on both sides (although this museum is from the perspective of the north); however, it’s the gallery focused on ‘agent orange’ that really caught our attention.

3) Wander around Thien Hau Pagoda

This fascinating Buddhist temple is dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea. In the past, people came here to pray for a safe trip before embarking on a journey out to sea. These days it’s noteworthy for its incense burning and coils.

4) Binh Tay Market

If you’re looking to brush elbows with locals (and tourists) head over to Binh Tay Market for all of the mayhem you can handle. If this place doesn’t sell what you’re looking for it’s unlikely to exist anywhere else on earth.

5) Marvel at the Reunification Palace

The former Presidential Palace (now called the Reunification Palace) was once home to the President of South Vietnam. In April, 1975 this all changed when tanks from the north crashed through the gates. The premises have been left to look exactly the way it did many decades ago.

6) Visit Notre Dame Cathedral

This stunning Cathedral is a significant landmark in Saigon. Built with red bricks it really stands out and is right beside the General Post Office. Come on Sunday and you’ll be treated to mass.

7) Check out the General Post Office

Last but certainly not least, make sure to check out the General Post Office. Designed by Gustave Eiffel (that guy who built the Eiffel Tower) when Vietnam was under control of French Indochina, its got a classic timeless appeal:

Hình du lịch này làm nổi bật những điều tốt nhất để làm khi đến thăm Sài Gòn cùng với tất cả các điểm tham quan trên cùng một khả năng cần cân nhắc khi đi du lịch, du lịch thành phố Hồ Chí Minh, Việt Nam. Là một trong những hầu hết trong khuôn mặt của bạn và các thành phố tự mãn trong tất cả Đông Nam Á (cho một mình Việt Nam) Sài Gòn được mô tả tốt nhất như chức năng hỗn loạn. Dành thời gian để khám phá thành phố đúng là phải tuyệt đối. Sau đây là danh sách bảy điều để thử trước khi bạn rời khỏi giới hạn thành phố:

1) Mua đồ lưu niệm du lịch Quirky

Việt Nam có quà lưu niệm du lịch kỳ quặc hơn bất cứ nước nào khác tôi đã từng viếng thăm. Từ cà phê Weasel (đó là được pooped ra) để rượu rắn quốc gia này có tất cả. Về nhà được trang bị những món quà đó, hoặc sẽ gây sốc hoặc làm cho bạn bè của bạn cười phá lên.

2) Thăm Bảo tàng Chứng tích chiến tranh

Bảo tàng Chứng tích chiến tranh là điểm thu hút ảm đạm nhất trong danh sách này.

3) Đi lang thang xung quanh chùa Thiên Hậu

4) chợ Bình Tây

5) Marvel tại Dinh Thống Nhất

6) thăm Nhà thờ Đức Bà

7) Kiểm tra các Tổng cục Bưu điện

  • If someone invades your country you will fight!….You don't have a choice? Dien Bien Phu was saying goodbye to the French Invasion. The museum tells the Vietnamese side of the story during the American War………The French were cruel and got their own at Dien Bien Phu and the Americans got their ass kicked as well. Leave these very peaceful and loverly people alone to get on with their lives .

  • I just love you two. You both do an excellent job video recording your adventures. My favorite is the Viet Nam series, but I appreciate all of them. I have decided to travel to Hoi An and maybe other parts of Viet Nam, but nobody will go with me, so I will be traveling alone. I am 53, in good shape, but will it be safe for me to travel alone?  How English speaking friendly is it there? I'm not quit as rugged as you guys, but don't want to waste the money on 5 star resorts, could you recommend a hotel close to the beaches by chance? What's the best time of the year, for out of peak season rates and going to the beach? I know I can't drink the water, but what about vegetables and fresh fruit? Do I need to get my blood stream saturated with bactrim before I land? How practical would it be to take a train ride to Ha Long Bay for an excursion? I'm planning on a 2-3 week stay. I know I have asked a lot of questions, and you don't need to answer any of them, but I would most appreciate any advice you could offer. Audrey you look great in the blue dress, but then again, you would look great in a potato sack. Thanks again for all the wonderful videos!

  • Fun and informative video. Did you visit Hanoi too ? If so, which of these two cities is best if I could only choose one. Thank you. I'm visiting Vietnam next spring.

  • The current Vietnam Govt neglects to say how many terror attacks they made on the South Vietnamese Govt infrastructure, nor the 350,000 slave laborers they used on the Ho Chi Minh Trail nor taking over 20% of Cambodia & Laos. The took 12,500 French prisoners @ Dien Bien Phu and only returned 4500 four months later. 8000 relatively healthy French men died in North Vietnamese prison camps. Not a word about their notorious Hanoi Hilton Prison.

  • ummm…Binh Tay market? locals DONT shop here. only if you want to pay 4x for something you can get cheaper in an alley a couple of streets over..try pho 2000 which is right across the street. Clinton visited there and the place is almost a shrine to him.
    But to get a real feel for Vietnam, stand outside and watch the traffic.
    the war remements museum is strictly propaganda and most things you  read/hear about the war need to be taken with a grain of salt, anywhere in Vietnam. The only real unbiased view is the section dedicated to the journalist that died during the war.
    as far as the reunion palace, go behind the roped off areas and try, if you can, to get to the platform where they have a huey displayed.  The cathedral is nice for pics but  you should visit the continental hotel, lots of real history there. Also the new "backpacker' street thats popped up the in the last few years is trying to give the area more of a night life.
    Ive been going to Vietnam/SE Asia for more than a decade, the changes are crazy.
