Places to see in Ho Chi Minh City, things to do in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam

1. Cao Dai Temple

Northwest of Ho Chi Minh City, towards the Cambodian border, is the headquarters of the intriguing Cao Dai sect located in the town of Tay Ninh. The Cao Dai religion is a fusion of world religions including Christianity, Buddhism and Islam and has up to three million followers across the south of the country. Make sure you attend one of the four services held here every day (0600, noon, 1800 and midnight) in the Disney-esque Cao Dai Temple. The midday service is extremely popular with visitors. The proceedings are viewed from a narrow balcony and the participants wear white, blue, red or yellow robes.

 

 

2. Vinh Long

Escape the city and head into the Mekong which can be reached from Ho Chi Minh City in three hours by road. On the banks of the canals and on small islands are tiny villages, where families eke a living from the river and the fertile land on its banks. Life here revolves around the river so chugging around on a small boat through the maze of canals, passing small boats that are home to whole families, is the only way to explore; join the locals as they haggle for fruit and vegetables at the floating market at Cai Be Excursions to the Mekong Delta do feel like a tourist conveyor belt, but if your time in Vietnam is limited, this is an efficient way of taking in rural life.

 

 

3. Cu Chi Tunnels

The Cu Chi Tunnels is an underground network which was excavated by the Vietnamese and used by the Viet Cong during both the French-Indochina War (1946-1954) and the Vietnam War (1955-1975). Situated near Ho Chi Minh City, the tunnels took around 25 years to construct and were finished in the 1960s. Stretching for over 200km (124 miles) and connecting numerous villages in the provinces, the tunnels once housed mini-hospitals, store rooms and factories, and were used as living quarters by both Vietnamese fighters and local villagers.

 

 

4. Ho Chi Minh City Museum

Housed in the former building of the Government of Cochinchina, the Ho Chi Minh City Museum (formerly the Revolutionary Museum) contains artefacts, such as weapons, uniforms, medals and old photos, from the period of Communist struggle against the French and the Americans. Unfortunately, the exhibits are only labelled in Vietnamese but some are self-explanatory. Outside the museum is a collection of military hardware including a tank and a helicopter. The museum building itself is of interest, built in classical style in the late 1880s and was formerly the palace of the governor of Cochinchina and the Supreme Court.

 

 

5. Vien Bao Tang Lich Su (Historical Museum)

Located just inside the entrance to the Botanical Gardens and Zoo, the Historical Museum houses a collection of artefacts covering the last 2,000 years of Vietnamese history, including items belonging to ancient cultures such as Dong Son, Oc Eo and Cham, right up until 1945. There are also collections of ceramics, weapons and Cham sculptures as well as a wing devoted to ethnic minorities. The museum was built in 1929 and the collection assembled by the Ecole Francaise d'Extreme Orient.

 

 

6. Thao Cam Vien (Zoo and Botanical Gardens)

The Botanical Gardens were established by the French in 1864 and once had the reputation of being some of the finest in Asia. Now, however, the area is just a pleasant one for a stroll in the heart of the city, among tropical plants and trees. The zoo is not up to Western standards, but many of the animals and birds are now housed in better enclosures and the zoo now has its own conservation programme. Make sure you visit in the afternoon to watch the animals being fed.

 

 

7. War Remnants Museum

This is not a museum for the sensitive as it houses instruments of torture and hundreds of photographs of atrocities committed during the 20th century and, in particular, the Vietnam War. Visitors cannot fail to be moved as the exhibits provide a context for a period of history many only know from old newsreels and Hollywood movies. At the front of the museum is a small collection of military hardware and, most interestingly, the mobile guillotine used by the French colonists to dispense justice throughout the country before WWII.

 

 

8. Notre Dame Cathedral

The twin towers of the beautiful, red-brick Notre Dame Cathedral have been a familiar landmark in Ho Chi Minh City since the 1880s. In front of the cathedral in a small garden lies a delicate statue of the Virgin Mary. The interior of the cathedral is rather plain, unlike most French cathedrals, with no stained glass, but it offers a cool respite from the heat outside. It is also an oasis of calm from the incessant traffic that circles the cathedral. There is still a significant Christian community in the south of Vietnam and church services are well attended.

 

 

9. Chua Ngoc Hoang (Jade Emperor Pagoda)

The Jade Emperor Pagoda is one of the most attractive pagodas in the city and was built in 1909 by the Cantonese community. Dedicated to various Chinese-Vietnamese divinities, in a mixture of Taoist and Buddhist styles, the pagoda houses numerous statues and delicate woodcarvings with intricate tiles on the roof. The interior is full of the smells from incense spirals hanging down from the ceiling and the altars are richly decorated. There is a pleasant courtyard with a pond full of tortoises.

 


10. Dinh Thong Nhat (Reunification Palace)

The Reunification Palace is beautiful in its ugliness, a 1960s monstrosity designed with the help of Soviet architects. Most people will remember the image of a North Vietnamese tank crashing through the gates on 30 April 1975, signifying the fall of Saigon. The tank still graces the front lawn. Rooms open to the public remain exactly as they were in 1975, showing where important meetings were held during the war, as well as some of the private quarters of the president and his family. Most fascinating are a series of underground tunnels housing a telecommunications centre.
