Arrive in Ho Chi Minh City

A driver holding a sign with your name will be waiting at the airport to pick you up and take you to your hotel. The evening is yours to enjoy at your leisure.

Ho Chi Minh City, formally Saigon, is a city of bright neon lights, endless shopping and trendy cafes.  Its wide tree-lined boulevards reflect its French heritage, and towering skycrapers announce it has landed squarely in the 21st Century.  As a contrast to this modern backdrop, is the chaotic traffic of swarming motorbikes, which are generally overloaded or carrying exotic passengers.  This is people watching at its best.
