Sights at Ho Chih Minh City (Saigon)

Cafe Apartment – a building made up of just cafes!

Finally, we get to visit Vietnam – another city I have never been to. I was stoked about the caffeine scene in this city, known for its French colonial past and pervasive coffee spots.

We signed up for a half day tour to Cu Chi Tunnel with a tour agent down town (USD20) per person. And these are the underground tunnel size back then during Vietnam war…so small!
Cu Chi Tunnel – types of deadly traps set up back during Vietnam War.
Shooting Range available at the end of Cu Chi Tunnel …
Reunification Palace.

Overall, if you are a coffee lover and looking for a short getaway using just Sat/Sun. I would highly recommend HCMC to do just that.

Uber is available in this city, not sure why the local scare of ‘fake Uber’ taxi driver, we had no issues with it and it was very very affordable to use Uber rather than local taxis when we have language barrier, no cash involved.
