Hi Ü I will be going to Ho Chi Minh later this year, since I want to enjoy my vacation and not go through the hustle and bustle of a hectic tour, I am planning to go on day tours instead. I've seen a lot and I'm not sure which ones would be the best (I am thinking of only going through 2 at maximum); since I will be there for only 3 nights and 4 days. I've seen: Cu Chi Tours, Mekong Delta tours, Ho Chi Minh City tour and I am not sure which 2 are the best that I should go to. Does anyone have any suggestions? And, do you think it would be best to book through Viator.Com? I was thinking of booking airport-hotel transfer after reading all the horror stories on Vietnam taxis.
Also, I've seen a lot of branded stuff that are Made In Vietnam and wanted to know if you had ideas if there is an outlet store in Ho Chi Minh selling branded items (such as Lacoste, Gap, etc). I wanted to get stuff at outlet price. Aside from the Ben Thanh market, do you also have other recommended shopping spots? I wanted to bring back masks as house decor..
