Setting sail from Ho Chi Minh City

Still often referred to by its old name, Saigon, Vietnam's busiest city is much more westernised than Hanoi, though it still retains plenty of charm. Saigon was the capital of the South during the Vietnam War, and American-style capitalism has been embraced more enthusiastically here than in the North, with a clutch of shining skyscrapers standing as testament to Vietnam's surging economic growth. You can learn more about the city's turbulent recent history at the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum, shop for souvenirs at the colourful markets, or take a trip out of the city to the fascinating (and claustrophobic) Cu Chi Tunnels, a vast network of underground passages excavated by the Viet Cong during the war.

Don't miss

Ben Thanh Market has an eclectic mix of wares. From the usual tourist fodder to kitchen utensils and everything in between, go there for the atmosphere rather than the shopping.

Arriving in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a fantastic place to begin or end a cruise, a striking mix of ancient and modern, Chinese and British, and there is a lot more to the city than just skyscrapers and high finance. On Hong Kong Island itself you'll find the bustling financial centre of Central district, the more traditionally Chinese Western district and the shops of Causeway Bay, while on the mainland Kowloon Peninsula the district of Tsim Sha Tsui is where most of Hong Kong's best hotels are located, and the atmospheric markets of Mong Kok are just to the north.

Our tip

Take the Star Ferry from Tsim Sha Tsui to Central. They have been carrying passengers since 1888, and these charming ferry boats offer an up-close look at Hong Kong’s much photographed skyline.

For once-in-a-lifetime tailor-made itineraries, Mundy Adventures specialises in expedition cruises to some of the most wonderful places on earth; places often only accessible by water.

Where to stay in Saigon

We think the Park Hyatt is a good choice.

Reunification Palace, Ho Chi Minh City

Sightseeing in Saigon

The country’s turbulent past is captured superbly at the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum. A fascinating visit.

The iconic Peninsula Hong Kong is, in our opinion, the city’s finest, and the Harbour View rooms offer picture postcard views of Victoria Harbour.
