Highlights tour

+ Reunification Palace:Reunification Palace  formerly known as Independence Palace  built on the site of the former Norodom Palace, is a historic landmark in  Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It was designed by architect Ngo Viet Thu as the home and workplace of the President of South Vietnam during the  Vietnam War and the site of the official handover of power during the Fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975. It was then known as Independence Palace, and an NVA tank crashed through its gates, as recorded by Neil Davis.

+ Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral: Situated right in the heart of Hochiminh City is the most famous landmark as well as core Cathedral of the city, Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral (translated as “Nhà thờ Đức Bà Sài Gòn).
Notre-Dame Cathedral, or Notre-Dame Basilica to be exact, is a famous age-long cathedral in Southern Vietnam. It is a magnificient building located at the paris Square in Hochiminh City downtown, attracting not only Catholics but also most tourists for its neo-Romanesque style architecture and a sacred atmosphere.
 

+ War Remains Museum:  The War Remnants Museum, or War Crimes Museum, is a must see for anyone interested in late 20th century history. The tanks, helicopters, planes and arms on display are not what makes of this such an important visit. What draws most visitors here are the images on display. Visitors can see the effects of the weapons of mass destruction used by the Americans during The Vietnam War (or American War, as locals call it).
 

+ Ben Thanh market: The Benh Thanh market, seems to be another albeit somewhat smaller typical market you will find in South East Asia. Selling the usual ,T-shirts, jeans jewelry ,sunglasses,silks and souvenirs. Again it is a typical rabbit warren ,not big enough to get lost in , But enough to maybe find a few useful things for your travels or some presents. There is also a night market that starts at 6 PM , again with the same products, but a nice area of outdoor cafes
