Top Descriptions

Núi Bà Đen is more of an entertainment and religious complex than it is a natural attraction. At the base of the mountain you’ll find many tourist-oriented stalls and a lake for taking boats or zorb balls out onto. There are temples dotted around the whole complex, but most of them are about two thirds of the way up the mountain. You can hike to the very top of the mountain, but most people take the cableway/slideaway up and down to visit those temples. – Daniel

Top Tips

The slideway (a sort of luge or tobogan) is a fun way down the mountain!
There are many relaxing hammocks around the temples toward the top of the mountain. Perhaps bring a picnic along with you to enjoy them and the good panoramas.
Although it’s not too far out of , it can still take a good two to three hours to drive back into the city from here.

Midday is a popular time to come for tourists as there is a punctual service at this time.

Top Tips

There are two sets of tunnels at Cu Chi. The other is called Ben Duoc and is reportedly a more authentic and less touristy experience.
Expect to be shown a short video and then taken on a quick-moving tour. All in all, it should take you no more than an hour and a half to visit the site.
You will enter the tunnels only briefly and towards the end of the tour. Although widened and reinforced for tourists, this can still be a claustraphobic experience, especially if you’re a larger person.

Top Tips

Give yourself plenty of time. This is an expansive museum and there’s a good deal of material to read.
There is a lot of graphic imagery here. Although it’s certainly importantly educational, it may not be the best place to bring your children.
Keep in mind that a lot of these horrors continue today. Then and now, the ends do not justify the means.

Make sure you head to the roof for some good panoramic views.
There’s a basement bunker level that’s worth visiting. If you’ve ever played GoldenEye on the N64, you may find it somewhat reminiscent.

Top Descriptions

If you’ve visited many zoos in Asia and are at all conscious of animal welfare, you’ll probably know that they’re better avoided. The Saigon Zoo and Botanical Gardens is no different. While there is some sort of botanical gardens here (mostly in the form of an orchid garden) the main focus is on entertainment for the family. The grounds are certainly pleasant enough to walk around, but some of the conditions the animals are kept in can be a little disconcerting. – Daniel
