Boats, local market and park

It will give you local feel of Vietnam. Boats, local market with fresh fruit is good to see. The park in it is a nice place to relax. Not a major attraction of the city.

Park is lovely and the area is just fine to visit but only if you are staying somewhere near to it. Else there is no point to come and visit it especially.

It's sometimes confusing when you ask taxi drivers but Bach Dang is the pier that is located next to the Vung Tau ferry terminal and across from Majestic. It has a nice authentic coffee shop and you can see locals doing tai chi and local gymastics or playing badminton in early mornings and youngs locals enjoying the fresh air from... More

Good selection of icecreams and desserts in a central location in Saigon. Would recommend for the first time and for ongoing visits if you are an icecreamaholic.

Just a wonderful relatively cheap old Saigon terrace to sip beer, drink a coconut or eat ice cream while people and traffic wonder by. The ice cream is so so in quality but eh location and service are the fun thing here.

Good experience to try how the locals make a cold dessert. Although it was always crowded, the staff can direct customers to their seats pretty well. A tourist attraction, although most of the diners were locals

... To various parts of the city whether it is a quick hop to go and have dinner at some of the places on the river (riverside, thao dien village, the deck, villa romaine) or explore the canals of HCMC with a sunset cruise. I recommend one company that stands out called Saigon River Express which can be found on... More

There are several piers along the Saigon river in the center of town with the most active portion located between the Renaissance hotel and the Majestic hotel. There you will see the continuous dance like movements of the Tu Thiem ferries connecting the other side of the river (district 2 apparently) to the CBD and bringing over every few minutes... More
