Walking Tour of Ho Chi Minh City – Day 2

Vietnam, Saigon/HoChiMinh City Guide (B): Walking Tour of Ho Chi Minh City – Day 2

This week I plotted out a second walking tour of Ho Chi Minh City. In my first itinerary, I mapped out a route between many of the major sites in District 3 and District 1. This tour covers more sites in District 1 and diverts briefly across the river to District 4 to see the Ho Chi Minh Museum. The tour introduces you to a typical Asian temple, a mosque, a Hindu temple, two entirely different museums, the tallest building in Ho Chi Minh City and the central tourist market in town. I’ve also added in a couple of suggestions for a rest, refreshment, and meals, but on this route, you’ll be spoilt for choice. There’s even the option to have a massage after a long day on your feet.

If you feel the distances between the different sites are too long, it’s a simple matter to jump in a cab or on the back of a Xe Om (motorbike taxi) to get to the next point. It should not cost you more than $1 or $2 for any of these trips. None of the distances should take you more than 20 minutes to walk directly to, even if you walk quite slowly. There are lots of diversions you can make. However, that will make your day longer. I’ll mention some of those at the relevant point. ......
