Even though Pho has long gained worldwide recognition, when it comes to tasty noodle soups, Vietnam still has a lot more to offer.

The most famous thing that makes foreigners know about Saigon, as well as Vietnam, is the Vietnam war. Also, it seems that 1968 saw the biggest offense and uprising of NLF and NVA against the Saigon government. To prepare for the Tet offensive 1968, the headquarters of subdivision 6 orders the commandos to build secret bunkers inside the city to hide troops and weapons so that we will lead you to one of them.
Reliving one of the most emotional moments of the war related to a Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk who burned himself to death at a busy Saigon road intersection.
Heading to Cho Lon area, which was known as the ChinaTown in Ho Chi Minh, you will get to know more about the culture of people here by visiting hidden temples, and walking along the lanterns street, together with the Eastern medicine street.
