    Tiny tunnels, booby traps everywhere – it's remarkable what they endured! A word to the wise: if you're tall, prepare to crouch. And if you hate tight spaces, maybe just admire the historic site from above ground.

    Great stop on our tour of Ho Chi Minh City. The architecture is beautiful and loved the interior as well. I purchased several small souvenirs in the shops inside and booked another tour at the booth inside. Everyone was friendly and not pushy at all.

    The visit to the Independence Palace is very interesting.
    Pre-reunification Government Headquarters presents the various rooms with period decoration. The Bunker deserves special attention.
    Interesting from a historical point of view. The instructions in English are very complete.
    Surrounded by gardens, it is a pleasant place to spend part of the day

    My first skyscraper, lovely experience. You can arrive until the 49th floor with a very little cost. I suggest to visit it around sunset, all the commercial area and the skyscrapers around will sparkle of lights. The view is at 360° over the town, unfortunately the reflection of the internal lights troubles the pictures and you need to writhe in order to find the right spot.

    The heart of the city. Beautiful square with the City Hall as a backdrop, a beautiful building from French colonial times.
    The square is a place for walks and meetings for countless people (tourists and Vietnamese)
    Here are the stores of big luxury brands
    At night it is particularly interesting with the lighting and is closed to traffic

    This is the sanitized version of a street food market - nice variety of stalls with a great mix of food. Seating area has music and overlooks the street is a great opportunity for people watching. Pricing is more than actual street food but still competitive

    Nguyen Hue Street is the heart of the city. Long avenue that connects Ho Chi Min Square and City Hall to the river.
    A place for thousands of people to walk, surrounded by bars and restaurants, it is worth a visit.
    At night and on weekends we find street artists, musicians, jugglers, and a whole crowd of people.

    Buy Vien street is sheer insanity. Think Las Vegas but just in a way more condensed area. Think La Placita if you have ever been to Puerto Rico.... yeah that's the perfect comparison.

    We walked by here a couple times during the day, and it's just nasty ahahahah but this place isn't made for the day. Nobody should see this place during the day.....

    If you want to go out at night and get ACTIVE, this is the place. Strips of bars BLASTING music with their doors wide open to the street, lights flashing in every direction, live music, ladies provocatively dancing on pedestals outside of bars, guys trying to sell you literally every drug under the sun and then some (allegedly).

    It's so overstimulating and pretty godless, but I know some of y'all love that......... Couldn't be me...........

    Found this gem from local student tour called Saigon Hotpot. Need a tour guild to explain all the back ground and get the best experience.

    I usually rate such streets as average (3 stars), because they're present in every city in the world. It's a classic shopping street with mainly haute couture shops, luxury hotels,..etc
    However, here in HCMC I raised to 4 stars, due to unusual mixture of French colonial legacy mixed with Vietnam hustle and bustle, topped with some ultra modern steel and glass high rises around. Interesting to walk through down to Saigon river.

    This pagoda has places to worship Buddha, Confucius and also Tao religion. It was interesting to see the three different areas. There is an area that shows what hell will be like for people who behave badly. It took us about half an hour with our guide to see this site

    One of the hidden gems of Ho Chi Minh and you won't miss this place as it is close by to the Central Post Office (it's just directly next to it).
    There are various types of books although mainly in Vietnamese language.

    This attraction is a short walk from the Saigon Notre Dame Museum. about 5-7minutes away. Along the way are huge pots with beautiful flowering plants. Public access to this government building is not allowed. Its exteriors are beautiful, with intricate moldings and designs.

    Took several photos here before going to the Garden across from it

    As others have said, the church is under repair which is a shame, but worth a visit, set in central location. Post office is nearby.
