Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam Cruise Port

Located in Southern Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City has had a tumultuous history going from a small fishing village to an important commercial seaport and then a territory of the French during their occupation and the capital of South Vietnam during the Vietnam War. Now this land has started a new chapter, a chapter of growth and urbanization – and fortunately for you there’s never been a better time to cruise to Ho Chi Minh City. While given the name of the communist leader Ho Chi Minh, the city center is still widely refereed to as Saigon. A visit to this city will now include the sight of skyscrapers along with old time food markets and cathedrals designed with French influences. 
  • At Reunification Palace you can see a chapter of American history, as this is the place where the surrender of Saigon took place in 1975. Take a guided tour of the area which is preserved as it was in the 1960s.
  • Visit the Central Post Office, built in 1886 by Gustave Eiffel, the architect behind Paris’ Eiffel Tower. This building is decorated with French Colonial maps and tiled floors.
  • Try Ben Thanh Market or Tan Dinh Market where you can find beautiful silk and other fabrics at a bargain price.
  • Take a tour on the back of a scooter – there are 5 million motorbikes in use contributing to Ho Chi Minh’s rapid pace. Along the way you’ll get a great overview of all the city’s hotspots for nightlife.
  • Peek into the past at the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum where you’ll see art from several eras. As a bonus, the museum is in an old colonial mansion and a piece of art in its own right.
