Formerly known in the West as Saigon and affectionately referred to as the "Pearl of the Far East," Ho Chi Minh City is a study of old and new, woven and piled together in a fast-paced urban hub.

On the 12th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: pause for some serene contemplation at Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, admire the landmark architecture of Central Post Office, thentake an in-depth tour of War Remnants Museum, and finally savor the flavors at Food & Drink.

Da Nang

A curious mix of developed beachfront tourism and untouched local city life, Da Nang presents an often-overlooked but authentic and welcoming picture of central Vietnam.
Venture out of the city with trips to Hoi An (Spas & Japanese Covered Bridge). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to The Marble Mountains, stop by M Legrand Jewelry, get in on the family fun at Ba Na Hills SunWorld, and take in the views from Dragon Bridge.

For ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Da Nang journey planner.

Traveling by flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Da Nang takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 15th (Wed) to allow time for travel back home.
