Market
“If you’re at all bothered by aggressive shopkeepers, then you should probably avoid this one. It’s interesting, but make no doubt about it, there will be women grabbing your arms and shouting at you in shrill voices to come to their shop. If you find something you like, bargain - bargain hard. A 30% markup for foreigners is pretty well expected.”

Museum
“For history buffs, the Independence Palace or Reunification Palace is an absolute must. This is the site of those famous images of tanks crashing through gates during the Fall of Saigon in 1975. Aside from the stunning grounds and impressive architecture, the inside of this building almost feels like you’ve gone back in time. You can see where the southern government operated the executive branch during the Vietnam War – even the bomb bunker in the basement, where the maps still hang on the walls.”

History Museum
“Established in 1975, this has been and still is the most visited museum in Vietnam. It was once named as the Museum of Chinese and American War Crimes. A compelling museum telling stories of the events during the war and even its aftermath. This museum examines the scars of the Vietnam War through well arranged exhibits of pictures, documents, and artifacts. The experience can be gruesome enough to leave a lasting memory - especially Monsanto’s Agent Orange section. You’ll leave the museum thinking one thing: war is hell.”

Vietnamese Restaurant
“Do you want to know what Vietnamese people have on their table at dinner? Visit this place, true Vietnamese-cuisine, stunning decorations and music inspired by the old Vietnamese style at the 80s, very good English speaking waiters. However the price is little bit high because all the ingredients are planted by themselves. And the decorations too, i bet you will definitely take a lot of photos there. Enjoy”
