8h00: You will be picked up by our local guide at hotel in Ho Chi Minh city. Enjoy a half day tour of Vietnam’s most busy business town. The tour includes such highlights as the War Remnants Museum. The museum was definitely worth a visit, it was firstly the view of the Vietnamese, secondly the horror of the chemical “agent orange”, and then last but not least a huge area on the top floor, showing both view, showing just how the war looked!
