Formerly known in the West as Saigon and affectionately referred to as the "Pearl of the Far East," Ho Chi Minh City is a study of old and new, woven and piled together in a fast-paced urban hub.
Ho Chi Minh City is known for nightlife, museums, and adventure. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: don't miss a visit to Cu Chi Tunnels, explore the galleries of The Independence Palace, pause for some serene contemplation at Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, and take in the exciting artwork at Couleurs by Rehahn Fine Art Photography - Dong Khoi.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Ho Chi Minh City fast, fun, and easy.

Prague, Czech Republic to Ho Chi Minh City is an approximately 17- hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of train and flight.

Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Prague in March; daily highs in Ho Chi Minh City reach 40°C and lows reach 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) early enough to travel to Da Lat.
