a great starting point for a tour in Southeast Asia
Ho Chi Minh has many sites (historical buildings, museums) that will offer the visitor cultural opportunities that will help him understand the history of Vietnam. I found Vietnamese people very hard working and friendly in general. Given that tourism is relatively new to Vietnamese, in my view, they are doing a pretty good job in this area. Ho Chi Minh City is a great starting point for those interested in Southeast Asia.
Insider Tip:I would suggest a tour of at least five days, to cover the most important cultural and historical sites.
