Ho Chi Minh City ©
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.
You've added Cholon Mosque, Ba Thien Hau Temple, Tam Son Hoi Quan Pagoda, and other attractions to your itinerary. You'll explore and learn at War Remnants Museum and Blue Space Art Gallery. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral and Emperor Jade Pagoda. The adventure continues: make a trip to Cu Chi Tunnels, hunt for treasures at Ben Thanh Market, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sri Thenday Yuttha Panin Temple, and stroll around Cong Vien 30-4.

Plan my day in Ho Chi Minh City using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Mannheim, Germany to Ho Chi Minh City is an approximately 16.5-hour combination of car and flight. The time zone changes from Central European Time (CET) to Indochina Time (ICT), which is usually a 6 hour difference. Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from Mannheim in December, with highs in Ho Chi Minh City at 36°C and lows at 26°C. You'll have a few hours on the 24th (Tue) to wrap things up before traveling to Hanoi.
