Oddly enough,I dreaded this port but to my surprise it ended up being my favorite..but only by chance. I was going to stay on the ship but saw tents selling souvenirs outside and grabbed $40 and went outside. As I was looking at the tents with other guests that decided to stay a bus pulled up. We all looked at each other I asked. It was a free bus into town for shopping. So all of us stragglers hopped on. About a 30 minute drive. It was an average area. So I skipped the shopping to walk to the main intersection and decided to turn around and go back, but multiple motorcycle drivers asked to give tours I said no to all until the last one. He spoke some English and was polite. So I said f@&$ it ,he said $40 perfect that's all I had. I hopped on his new motorcycle and went. It was the best experience I saw way more than all of the excursions combined and then some. He was so cool. I wish I could name everything I saw but I don't have all day😍😍😍

Hired a driver with another couple for $40 a piece to take us to the Cu Cui tunnels then to Saigon to reunification palace, post office and Thane market. Busy day but I'm glad we did it.

Do a day trip to Ho Chi Minh. We did a private tour with Private Asia Tours. You get to see more than the cruise ship tours and there is more flexibility

Visit Ho Chi Minh City & Notre Dame Cathedral. Also visit former Presidential Palace, now Reunification Hall and perhaps a lacquer ware workshop

This was a good port also and our excursion was a small group of 3 couples and a driver and a guide taking us out to the Mekong Delta and cruising the river and back water ways.

The port is very isolated and far from the nearest Point of interest.. you only have 2 a very expensive shore tour organized by the ship or hire a taxi that is a rip off,no english and drives dangerously..Ships dont provide a shuttle bus even for a small fee,all they do is business everything! Risky for the patrons!
