Half Day City Tour

Duration: 3 Hours
Overview: Pick up at hotel and drive to Ho Chi Minh's Complex and the mausoleum of the nation's founder and leader. See the Presidential Palace and Uncle Ho's wooden stilt house and the One Pillar Pagoda dating back to the 11th century which looks like a huge lotus flower from afar. The next stop is the Temple of Literature, the site of Vietnam's oldest university, dedicated to one of the world's most famous scholars, Confucius. Inside the temple grounds, huge steles rest on the backs of even larger stone turtles (in Vietnam's culture, the turtle represents longevity).
