Going to Ho Chi Minh soon. Staying there for 5 days. Is it too long? Is there anywhere around worth a day trip.
yes, if you're only touring the city, but, short if you want to also visit Cambodia or other far places. ;) about 8 years agoAnswered by ;) via WorldNomads.com
Loads to do in and around HCMC:
- try the Jade Emperor Pagoda or the old markets both in different parts of the city itself
- a day trip out to the famous Vietcong tunnels of Chu Chi.
- I'd also highly recommend an overnight trip to Cantho in the Mekong delta. You might be able to do it in a day but it's better given a little time as there are morning markets both in the town and floating on the river.
If you have any 'spare' time, pick a delta town at random and head out there - usually you'll be rewarded with an experience few others share. about 8 years ago
