War Remnants Museum, Ho Chi Minh City

The War Remnants Museum is the most popular museum in HCMC. The museum contains exhibits relating to the Vietnam War such as graphic photographs and American military equipment on display, including a helicopter with rocket launchers, a tank, a fighter plane, and single-seater attack aircraft. Check out this museum to grasp what Vietnam’s war history was about but also to understand more about Vietnamese people value and care about.

The Museum of Vietnamese History, Ho Chi Minh City

One of many museums in Ho Chi Minh City, this site offers a variety of ancient artifacts and other items that speak about the history of Indochina.
There are some fantastic examples of sculptures and art from the Cham and Oc Eo civilizations, collections of porcelain and art from various historical periods and even a preserved mummy found in Saigon.

Vietnam National Museum of Fine Arts, Hanoi

Housed in a gorgeous French Colonial building, the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum is a real treasure trove of traditional, religious, modern and contemporary Vietnamese art. Highlights of its collections include Buddhist art, objects, and clothes from Vietnam`s ethnic minority groups and some stunning lacquer work.

Vietnamese Women Museum, Hanoi

One of Vietnam's top museums, this is a truly intriguing place. The museum explores Vietnam`s cultural diversity and reflects the lives and roles of Vietnamese women in society.
The Vietnamese Women’s Museum is a community collection of cultural and historical knowledge about Vietnamese women’s lives across the nation’s 54 ethnic community groups.

Diep Dong Nguyen House, Hoi An

Considered the first private museum in the central part of Vietnam, Diep Dong Nguyen House is an ancient house famous among travelers. To visit this house you don’t need a ticket, and can freely and safely see and touch the objects in the house. How’s that for a cool thing to do in Ho chi minh city?

The Hidden Treasures of Ho Chi Minh City

Ich habe eine Stadtführung durch Saigon mit Thien gebucht. Schon in der Vorbereitung der Tour stand Thien mir mit Rat und Tat zur Hilfe. Zum verabredetem Treffpunkt wurde ich pünktlich mit einem freundlichen Lächeln empfangen. Wir haben wirklich tolle Orte in der der besucht. Meine Fragen wurden an den Sehenswürdigkeiten bestens beantwortet. Darüber hinaus hat Thien jede Menge Hintergrundinformationen die wirklich alles erklären.
Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit in der es recht locker und lustig zuging. Keine durchgetaktete Tour die pünktlich endet. Der gebuchte Zeitrahmen wurde sogar überschritten. Ich kann die Tour mit Thien nur wärmstens empfehlen.

The Non-Touristy Mekong Delta Private Day Trip

We had a great day in the Mekong Delta with AK. He was really helpful and informative. Everything was very well organised. The lunch was delicious in a lovely setting. We all really enjoyed the bike ride through the village too. Although it was a fairly long journey, AK kept us entertained with several bits of interesting information and I would definitely recommend this trip. We saw very few other tourists as the name of the trip promised!
