    Hi, I can see you have not decided when to come to Ho Chi Minh city. I suggest not coming visit the city in July because it rains heavily and maybe it will be flood :(

    In May and June, there are not many national days so you can visit the city anytime. But just so you know, now is the beginning of RAIN season.

    Hope it helps.

    Hi there,

    To learn culture, meeting local is a great choice.
    Here is some places you can consider. I compose it from my friends and experience:

    THE MUSEUM
    Ho Chi Minh museum: 01 Nguyen Tat Thanh st, ward 12, district 4, Ho chi minh city
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ho_Chi_Minh_City_Museum)
    War Remnants museum: 28 Vo Van Tan, in District 3, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_Remnants_Museum)
    Independence Palace (Reunification Palace): 135 Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
    (http://www.paradissa.com/vietnam/vietnam-travel-information/the-independence-palace-saigon_en.html)
    South Women's Museum: 202 Vo Thi Sau street, Dist.3, Ho Chi Minh City

    http://www.etravelvietnam.com/sites/sic_details.php?tourID=229
    (High Recommend:
    To come Cu Chi tunnel:
    Going by public bus you first have to take bus 13 No at Ben Thanh station and go all the way to the end station in Cu Chi.
    At the Cu Chi bus station you have to take another bus -79 No, which takes you directly to the tunnels. There are several signs along the way saying Cu Chi tunnels (in Vietnamese- Dia dao Cu Chi), so you can’t miss it.
    Bus 13 to Cu Chi: 5000 Dong, journey time around 60 min
    Bus 79 to the tunnels: 4000 Dong, journey time around 30 min
    At the tunnels, the entrance fee is 90.000 Dong (which is NOT included in the price for the special tourist bus).
    To come back Ben Thanh market:
    Take bus 79 No in front of Cu Chi tunnel at main entrance (where you get oFf before) to direct Cu Chi bus station. Last, take bus No 13 to back Ben Thanh market.
    THE PAGODA
    Thien Hau Temple in the Cho Lon (Chinatown) district of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
    Xa Loi Pagoda (89 Ba Huyen Thanh Quan, District 3)
    Quoc Tu Pagoda (244 Ba Thang Hai Street, District 10)
    Cao Dai Temple (Street 60 Number 6, District 4, Ho Chi Minh City)
    Jade Emperor Pagoda (73 Mai Thị Lựu, Đa Kao, District 1)
    Mariamman Hindu Temple (45 D Truong Dinh, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam)
    Giac Lam Pagoda (118 Lac Long Quan Street, District 5. Open 6am to noon then 2 to 8:30pm.)
    THE OTHER SIGHT SEEING
    Ben Thanh market: at the intersection of Le Loi, Ham Nghi, Tran Hung Dao Avenues and Le Lai street
    (http://www.vietnamonline.com/attraction/ben-thanh-market.html)
    (Recommend: You can visit to Ben Thanh market, try some food but shouldn’t buy souvenirs at there. At night, you can try some beer around there)
    Cho Lon market (Binh Tay market) in China Town Saigon: District 5, HCMC
    (http://www.indochinacharmtravel.com/destinations/south-of-vietnam/sai-gon-travel-guide/saigon-china-town-cho-lon-.html)
    (Recommend 1: You can take a bus No 01 from Ben Thanh bus station to Cho Lon bus station (final station), Cho Lon market is nearby Cho Lon bus station. After take around there, come back Cho Lon bus station to take back in Ben Thanh market by a bus No 01)
    (Recommend 2: You can buy goods in Cho Lon market but have to take a bargain- from 20% to 30% discount)
    Bach Dang riverside: opposite to Majestic Hotel is on 01 Dong Khoi st, District 01, HCMC
    (Recommend: visit to here on evening)
    Can Gio Beach

    http://inbound.travel.com.vn/Default.aspx?id=13&l=1&tid=175c887c-e986-4d3a-bfda-bb37ae596fe8
    (Recommend: You can take 02 buses to Can Gio beach yourself:
    From Ben Thanh Bus Station (in front of Ben Thanh Market), take a bus No.20 to Binh Khanh ferry (Nha Be District - 3000dong/pax). When the bus stop. You buy a ticket ferry (1000dong/pax no motor). After pass the Binh Khanh ferry, you take a bus No.90 to Can Gio Beach.
    On the way to Can Gio beach, you can stop to visit Vam Sat, Mokey Insland, ....
    Ask the bus driver or bus assistant the place you want to stop. (cos there is not any fix station).
