Our cheap flights today take us to Ho Chi Minh City, in southern Vietnam. You will encounter a city of contrasts: Food stalls and Oriental pagodas are easy to find, while modern skyscrapers dot the skyline, which gives the city a different feel altogether. Whilst in Ho Chi Minh City, we recommend visiting the Mekong Delta, a 4 hour drive that is well worth the trip: floating markets, pagodas and villages surrounded by rice paddles really add to your experience!

An exciting mix of old and new, Ho Chi Minh City will be your first contact with Vietnamese culture. Head to the Ben Thanh market to get a feel of the pace of the city and grab a bite to eat, or pamper yourself at any of the affordable spas that dot the city.
After a good night’s sleep, a full day of visiting awaits. The History Museum is a good place to start, as it will help you learn, understand and put into context everything you see on your trip. Another unmissable stop is the Reunification Palace, the former Presidential Palace. Venture inside if you want to get a closer feel of the importance it had, starting with the underground military operations rooms.
A four hour drive away is the Mekong Delta, where you will encounter traditional floating markets, pagodas and enchanting villages. Many local companies offer two or three day trips to the region, but you can visit it yourself quite easily. Fancy Vietnam?
