Ho Chi Minh from Phu My/Lotus Port.
Morning, you will be picked from Celebrity Millennium Ship at Phu My port in Vung Tau by our guide. The transfer to Ho Chi Minh City is app. 1 hrs and a half to its centre. Saigon is not only sightseeing, but about street markets, where bargains are struck and deals are done; the pavement cafes, where stereo speakers fill the surrounding streets with a melodious thumping beat; and the sleek new cafes and pubs, where tourists chat over beer, pretzels, coffee and croissants. Today you will have a sightseeing tour in Saigon which includes visits to the: War remnants museum.
China Town with Thien Hau Pagoda: The Thien Hau Pagoda is one of Cholon's must-sees. It is dedicated to the goddess Thien Hau, protector of the sea. Photographers are spoilt for choice with the ornate decoration inside the pagoda and the statues of Thien Hau. It is popular with worshipers (the air is always heavy with the smell of incense). Notre Dame Cathedral: The twin towers of the Notre Dame Cathedral have been a familiar landmark in Ho Chi Minh City since the 1880s. In front of the cathedral in a small garden is a delicate statue of the Virgin Mary. The interior of the cathedral is rather plain, unlike most French cathedrals, with no stained glass but it is a cool escape from the heat outside. Former Post Office: Across from the Notre Dame Cathedral, the vast Post Office was also built in the late 19th century in European style. The interior has hardly been touched since it was built and is dominated by a huge portrait of Ho Chi Minh. The building always seems busy but most people are just visitors rather than customers. Visit Ben Thanh Market and free time for shopping. Afternoon: The guide will transfer you back to your ship in Phu My Port by 18:00. End of service. Meal: None.
