Holidays to Saigon Vietnam with Escape Worldwide

What to do in Saigon

Saigon itself is a fascinating mix of people and sights, with a lively atmosphere and plenty to see and do. Outside of the City, the Mekong Delta is alive with floating markets of fresh produce, set in beautiful countryside. The renowned Cu Chi Tunnels, outside of Saigon, is an amazing complex of underground tunnels that really gives the visitor a reality check in to the hardships of war.

Where to stay in Saigon

Saigon has some good hotel options, with many properties located in the historic older areas of the city. In the hills at Dalat, properties tend to be historic, and often beautifully renovated.

Holiday ideas to Saigon

Spend a few nights in lively Saigon, taking in the atmosphere and exploring well-known locations such as the Cu Chi Tunnels and the Mekong Delta, before heading on to other areas of the Country, such as Dalat for a few nights of relaxation, or the beaches further north. Alternatively, visit Saigon as a part of a tour of Vietnam, or a wider multi centre holiday to Vietnam and beyond.
