7 Day Itinerary in Ho Chi Minh City

Edit This
Ho Chi Minh City is an unusual holiday destination, exuding a more historical and cultural identity than conventional tourist spots. Here's 7 day itinerary to make the most of this eventful and historical city.

Day 1 - Pagoda Tour

You haven’t visited Ho Chi Minh until you witness the several ancient pagoda structures that dot the town. Start with the Quac Tu Pagoda on 244 Ba Thang Street on District 10. The massive seven-story edifice was built in 1962, and features a nice collection of Buddha statues. The pagoda is encircled by pleasant parks and lakes. Move to Giac Lam Pagoda on Lac Long Quan St at District 5. This is the oldest pagoda in the region, dating back more than a hundred years. It has Confucian, Buddhist and Taoist touches. Proceed  to Jane Emperor Pagoda at Duong Mai Thi Luu for its bright, incense-filled oriental temple structure, housing impressive figurines and wooden carvings. The Xai Loi Pagoda (located in District 3) is touted to be built with, among other things, a few bones of Buddha.

Day 2 - Bink Quoi Tourist Village

Visit the Bink Quoi Tourist Village (located on the banks of Sai Gaon River) for fun-filled activities like boat rides, river cruises and water puppet shows. Enjoy a dinner cruise with a nice cultural show in the evening.

Day 3 - Zoo and Botanical Gardens

Visit the Zoo and Botanical Gardens (located at District 1), built in the mid-nineteenth century. The park has several species of indigenous flowers, trees and other plants and more than 110 varied species of animals. There is a temple in the premises.

Day 4 - Revolutionary Museum and Historical Museum

The Revolutionary Museum at District 1 is a neo-classical structure depicting the Communist struggle. The 1885 built museum stocks a vast collection of memorabilia, chronicling the rebellion against the French and Americans. Move to the History Museum on District 1 for an overview of cultural evolution of Vietnam. There are ceramics, artifacts from Angkor Wat, ancient weapons, costumes and other household items.

Take a tour of the Reunification Palace, an iconic Vietnamese structure with impressive and stately interiors. Proceed to Mariamman Hindu Temple, a few blocks away from the Ben Thanh market and view interesting idols of Hindu goddesses.

Day 6 - War Remnants Museum and Fine Art Museum

The War Remnants Museum on District 1 is an unnerving reminder of the Vietnam War and has an extensive collection of military weapons and armaments, along with audio-visuals and photographs of major war events. The museum is vast and could take visitors an entire day to explore.
