Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City
The urban and metropolitan Southern capital is relatively young compared to other major Vietnamese cities, but it still has the distinctive Vietnamese touch that all of its major cities do so well. The city is a combination of modern and traditional, with old French colonial and Vietnamese traditional buildings standing cheek-to-cheek with sleek skyscrapers, curved tiled roofs and glass windows side by side in harmony. For a cross-section of Saigon’s influences, you can visit the Central Post Office, the Ben Thanh Market, and the Independence Palace.
- Central Post Office Address: 02 Paris Commune, Bến Nghé, District 1, Hồ Chí Minh city 70000, Vietnam
- Ben Thanh Market Address: Le Loi, Ben Thanh Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
- Independence Palace address: 135 Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Street, Ben Thanh Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
The French can keep their baguettes; Vietnam has taken the classic boulangerie treat and made it their own in the Banh Mi. This sandwich, when made Saigon-style, is generously loaded with five different kinds of cold cuts and pâté (often homemade), balanced out by enough pickled vegetables and sauces to make it enjoyable and not too greasy. This is one of Vietnam must try food when you visit Ho Chi Minh city.
Day 2: Cu Chi Tunnels
On the second day of Vietnam 14 day itinerary, let’s visit Cu Chi tunnels. Living in modern life with all the amenities, one can hardly conceive that people actually could live underground, where darkness, disease, claustrophobia, and other mortal perils ran rampant. The Viet Cong soldiers of the Cu Chi tunnels endured all that, and today visitors can briefly glimpse their experience in a 1.5-hour tour along the intricate system.
Even though it only takes a short time to traverse the tunnels, Cu Chi has great, rustic food that might coax a traveler to stay. Cassava can be boiled and eaten with peanut-and-sesame salt and grated coconut, or cooked with rice (although eating these hearty roots on an empty stomach can cause poisoning). If you only have a short time, try durian sugarcane juice from an extremely popular 25-year-old shop.

Day 3: Mekong Delta
This delta is affectionately referred to as “the granary of Vietnam”. The nickname is easy to understand once you see the massive paddy fields that produce excellent-quality rice for both domestic and export uses. Culturally, the region is also home to ornate places of worship, and many farmers and artisans who live off of the land’s generosity.
The waters of the Mekong created an extremely fertile land that produces wonderful crops. Caramelized fish in clay pots is a treat when eaten with sweet white rice, a marriage of the land and the river.
Day 4-5: Nha Trang
On the next days of Vietnam 14 day itinerary, we will return to central, where there are the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam. Nha Tr
