Special Gifts and Souvenir recommendation in Saigon

Especially, there are some samples of sculpture and art from the Cham and Oc Eo civilizations, statues of Buddhas from across the region, collections of porcelain and art from various historical periods and an even a mummy found preserved in Saigon. The narratives on the walls throughout the museum also go some way to helping the visitor understand the many periods of Vietnamese history, with only a few gaps.

The War Remnants Museum

Top entertainment & recreation spot in Sai Gon

The War Remnants Museum located in 28 Vo Van Tan, District 3, is a comprehensive collection of photographs, video and other evidence detailing the horrors of war and the aftermath of unexploded ordinance, agent orange and other legacies of the combat. Be careful to avoid being overly political, instead pointing the finger at the senseless nature of war itself rather than focusing too closely on assigning blame. It is a gloomy and moving experience, but it is highly recommended both to help understand what Vietnam went through and as a reminder of the importance of campaigning for peaceful solutions to differences between nations.

Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum

 

Having kept beautiful old building from the colonial era, the Fine Arts Museum has an interesting collection of masterpiece from both contemporary and traditional artists, as well as a fascinating collection of statues and artifacts dating back as far as the first century AD on the 3rd floor. Recommended highly

Ben Thanh Market

Ben Thanh Market is an ideal place to buy local handicrafts, branded goods, Vietnamese art and other souvenirs. 

The market is really big, difficult to direct at times and best avoided during the hottest part of the day but all the same its well worth a look. Like many traditional markets, restaurants around the perimeter of the market open their doors creating a vibrant street-side scene filling the air with the scents of wok-fried noodles, barbecued fish, and meats in a night.

Saigon’s Binh Tay Market

 

Binh Tay Market (Cholon ) now covers a huge area from the residential quarters in Districts 5 and 10 to the vicinity of Districts 6 & 11. Being the largest Chinatown district in Vietnam, the Hoa people, a minority group living inVietnam consisting of persons considered ethnic Chinese,  living there still keep their age-old cultural, architectural, and religious values.

Up till now, Cholon is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Saigon.
