If you prefer sightseeing under your own steam, this is the trip for you. Before you set off, you’ll be whisked off on a panoramic coach tour, passing the Reunification Palace, the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office. We’ll drop you off and pick you up from Bitexco Finance Tower square, which is a great spot for picking up souvenirs before or after you’ve seen the city. Its stalls are packed with conical hats, bags, coffee, and bowls of steaming pho. Where you start your wandering is up to you. If modern’s more your thing, try scaling one of the 21st-century skyscrapers for a bird’s-eye view. You can refuel at the restaurants or bars at the top, too.
The journey time is approximately 2 hours each way.
- SUITABILITY Little physical activity.
