Nha Trang to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)
Flight Time: 1 hour
Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon as it is still known by locals, has a French colonial past that resonates in its architecture and lively café society, yet this is a quintessentially Asian city where life, in all its noise and colour, is lived on the streets. Just outside the city borders are the Cu Chi Tunnels – an underground community of over 200 miles of tunnels and chambers below the city which date back to the 1940s.
The swaying, watery landscape and hushed villages of the Mekong Delta are a delicious respite from the toxic and seductive cities. Also known as Vietnam's 'Rice Basket', the area is fed by the formidable Mekong River and offers an irresistible charm with its welcoming people and quaint waterside towns.
