Setting off from Phu My Port in Vung Tau or Saigon/Nha Rong Port in Ho Chi Minh City, our guide will take you to the War Remnant Museum, once notoriously known as the “Museum of American War crime”, followed by a visit to the Notre Dame Cathedral, which was constructed between 1863 and 1880 by the French colonists. It boasts two bell towers, reaching a height of over 58 meters (190 feet). We then head to the China Town in the District 5 where the Chinese community has become an inseparable part of the Vietnamese life here after hundred years of integration. After that, we drop by the Giac Lam Pagoda, a peaceful picturesque place set in a tranquil atmosphere.
