We visited Ho Chi Minh City. An excellent 1-day tour of the city, with SaigonGlobal Tour, Ms. Ly, who was really knowledgeable, to temples, the Cathedral, old Post Office, Market and War Remnants Museum. We couldn’t have been more impressed, with all our many questions answered during the tour.
Such friendly and knowledgeable people who were able to answer all our questions about the city and the history from the terrible war.
Overall a good tour though we didn’t manage to visit Ben Thanh Market which was closed during the Tet Holidays.
