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.

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.

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.

Katie Ho Chi Minh City

The Non-Touristy Mekong Delta Private Day Trip

Anh was an amazing tour guide who showed our family the beauty of the Mekong Delta! We have 2 kids (8 and 5 years old) who thoroughly enjoyed their time on this tour. We were picked up bright and early at our hotel in Ho Chi Minh City to start our adventure. We rode in motor boats and row boats along the beautiful Mekong River, explored the busy fresh food markets, tasted the delicious coconut candies, rode in a fun rickshaw, learned how to make bricks and sleeping mats, and had a delicious lunch in a rural area of town. Anh was very knowledgeable and respectful the entire time, and her English was perfect! What a wonderful experience that will be forever in our memories. :)
