Sight seeing at Ho Chi Minh

There are several places that have to be visited when you go to HCMC. They are War Remnant Museum, The Notre Dame, General Post Office, and Reunification Palace. With a half day only that's the best I can do :p

Chu Chi Tunnel

This Tunnel was built and used by Viet Cong in Vietnam War. The tunnel is marvellous but it's too small; no wonder American soldiers was beaten by them. Here I bought a snake wine as a souvenir.

Mekong Delta

Mekong Delta was a place to see rural life in Vietnam. Here you can see floating market, the making of rice paper, the making of Rice Caramel, the making of coconut candies.
