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?

Best of Ho Chi Minh City Private Tour

Hi Anh, Thank you so much for showing us the best of Ho Chi Minh city. Your in-depth knowledge of all the landmarks, local foods and culture was impressive, but much, much more importantly, your warm, genuine and cheerful personality made all the difference. We felt that we were casually walking the streets of Ho Chi Minh with a friend passionate about their home town.

You happily shared with us all aspects of Vietnamese lifestyle, the things that people expect to hear on a tour, but also the things that only a someone with your local knowledge and personal qualities can openly share. It made our tour special and we couldn't have wished for more. You were fantastic.

The Non-Touristy Mekong Delta Private Day Trip

We did the tour of the Mekong Delta. We didn’t really know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised with the experience. Ted is very friendly and quite knowledgeable about Vietnam in general and the Mekong Delta. The tour itself was well-organized, very interesting and unique. We were picked up outside our air b&b on time, and seamlessly shuffled from one mode of transportation to another throughout the day. We have done a number of tours over the last few weeks and this one was our favourite. The extra cost for a private tour makes the experience so much more personable. Highly recommend!
