Saigon and Environs

Jump to last reply

Thanks everyone who responded to my previous post about Saigon around Xmas time...

So, my wife and I will have about 7 days on the ground. Do people who have been there think we could happily stay there for that amount of time, or should we add a slight local detour? To help answer this, I'll add a bit of detail about us - we're a youngish couple (early 40s) who have been to Hanoi, a few places in Thailand, and Singapore. Last summer, we had 9 nights on the ground, and we spent 7 nights in Singapore and 2 at a beach resort in Thailand. We definitely did not run out of things to do for 7 days in SG as we love to eat local food, and to try to find the best examples of different dishes, which requires a bit of time and travel around the city. We also enjoy walking around getting the feel of different neighborhoods.

So, with that in mind, should we stay the 7 nights in Saigon, or should we take 2 nights on a trip - we were thinking about a beach resort in Vung Tau, which according to a little research should only be about an hour ferry ride from Saigon. That would leave 5 nights in Saigon....

Thank you!
