Shopping or window-shopping when travelling to a new land is always a fully relaxing thing to do. In Ho Chi Minh city, there are the two most popular street markets you should not skip on your travel itinerary. The first choice is Ben Thanh market located in District 1. This is a great place to find some authentically Vietnamese with a wide array of local goods, handicrafts and other souvenirs. At night, you can immerse in endless stalls of local food surrounding the market, enjoy a bite to eat and admire the vibrant street-side scene. The other is Binh Tay market, also called Cholon and located in Vietnam’s largest Chinatown of District 6. This is the best place to savour unique Vietnamese-Chinese dishes and experience the local lifestyle.

3. Visit the extensive network of Cu Chi Tunnels

Located about 70 kilometres northwest of Ho Chi Minh city, Cu Chi Tunnels is an amazing getaway where tourists, especially veterans and history buffs, explore about the underground life of local Vietnamese during the wartime against the French and the American. The attraction is a marvellous complex of more than 120 km of underground tunnels served as hospitals, hideouts, kitchens, storage facilities, and command centres, etc. Touring to the place, visitors will watch a short film of the tunnels before experiencing a small section of the system which has been cemented and widened. You can also join in the activities in the shooting range where you see and try an M16 or AK practice.
