In Ho Chi Minh City, visitors can see with their own eyes how extraordinary Vietnam has become after almost three decades of war. The city also offers tourists the chance to see remarkable French colonial architecture such as; City Post Office, Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica and the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Building, otherwise known as the Hotel de Ville de Saigon. The contrast of the French colonial architecture with modern skyscrapers is very striking. Visitors will also have the chance to visit the Independent Palace and the War Remnants Museum where they can satisfy their curiosity concerning the Vietnam War (known as the American War to Vietnamese people).

Whatever you desire, we are here to help you, and all free of charge. We hope you enjoy your stay.
