Attractions in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

  • Visit the Cu Chi Tunnels
    These tunnels are a massive network of underground tunnels which were used by Viet Cong guerrillas as hiding places, food and weapon storage, communication routes, and at times even living quarters during the war. The tunnels played an important role in winning the war against the Northern Americans. If you are not afraid of small spaces, you can even enter one of the tunnels yourself. However, there is also a bigger replica available where you can walk through.
  • French atmosphere: visit the Central Post Office, the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and the Cho Quan
    All influenced by French architecture, the French colonial history in Vietnam becomes visible when visiting these attractions. The Central Post Office was build in 1886, and designed by the famous French architect Gustave Eiffel. Great place to see French colonial architecture styles, combined with Vietnamese influences such as a portrait of Ho Chi Minh. After this, make sure to visit the Notre–Dame Cathedral, build between 1863 and 1880 by French colonists. Have a drink at the Cathedral’s square while looking at the hustle and bustle of HCMC. Also, walk in the Cho Quan Church, one of the largest churches in Vietnam, build approximately 100 years ago by the French.
  • Go back to the 1960’s and pay a visit to the Reunification Palace
    During the Vietnam war, this palace was symbol for the South Vietnamese government. You will be fascinated by the various chambers in this palace, all designed in modern style. However, at the same time a creepy feeling dawns upon every tourist, as the halls of the palace are deserted, giving a feeling of time standing still.
  • Walk around the Ho Chi Minh Square
    This is one the biggest and most central squares of Ho Chi Minh City. There are various shopping malls around the square, and in the center, a beautiful statue of Ho Chi Minh can be seen. Especially in the evening, it is the place to be, as the square is completely lit up, and various food stalls are offering local dishes.

Wine & Tapas Tour: A Gourmet Journey

We thorougly enjoyed the tapas tour with Alvaro. He is a great "host" who took us to some charming and quirky places with great food and wine. It is fantastic to be shown around by a local who can take you to places you might not otherwise have found. He also gave some great advice on other things to do while in Madrid. Top marks to Alvaro.
