things to see & do in singapore, with so many things todo, so many things to see, and so many delicious foods to eat. i'm going to be exploringsome of the best, and most exciting, things to do

when you are in ho chi minh city, vietnam. so, keep watching this video,we are going to explore this amazing city together, and hopefully this video will give you some great ideas about some things thatyou can do when you visit. (drumming) right now, i'm at the bã¬nh tã¢y market. i think they have everythinghere that you could want,

from clothes to food to snacks and even like cookware, this is a great place to buy cookware. but anyway, lots and lots of things available at this market and there's a beautifulfood court as well, where you can stop toeat breakfast or lunch. it's kind of a square market, and then in the middle is a chinese garden

where you can come to relax. this is a great market, i'm loving it. (oriental music) i'm at the thiãªn hã¢u taoist temple in saigon in chinatown, and this is, i think thisis one of the biggest, most well known andimportant taoist temples in this area of saigon. many people come here tobuy these coils of incense

and then they hang them up. whoa, a little piece of ash just, just fell down right beside me. as you can see a bunch of smoke coming from the incense over there. i'm standing on the balcony now of the ho chi minh city museum, which i think, i thinkpreviously it was called the revolutionary museum.

but it's just 15,000 dong for entrance. part of the beauty of the museum is just the building that it's housed in, which is a neoclassical building which i think was built in 1885. it's a beautiful buildingand within the museum you can find all sorts of exhibitions about the history of ho chi minh city, as well as some vietnamese cultural,

traditional exhibitions as well. and it's a place that you can go to learn about the history of hochi minh city and vietnam. i'm at the bitexco financial tower, which is by far thetallest building in saigon making up the skyline. there are two options when you come here, you can either go to thesky, the saigon skydeck, which i think is on the 49th floor,

or alternatively, you can go to a cafe which is on the 50th floor. and you can buy a drink,a drink or a snack there and get the same great view. so, i am on the 50th floor now and i just ordered up a littlecup of coffee, a ristretto. oh yeah, that is strong, but the views from uphere are pretty amazing. we're on the 50th story, of course so

you've got a really nice view. unfortunately this isnot the clearest of days i chose to come here. it's sort of raining, but it's still a good view of the city. i am at the independence palace, which is also known asthe reunification palace, and this is right in the heartof saigon, ho chi minh city. one of the most importantattractions, landmarks.

but formerly it wasthe main seat and house of the president of therepublic of vietnam. and now, they've turnedit more into a museum. although they still, i think they still use it for government meetings and events. i think they're having actually a meeting right now as we were inside. but you can really goto many different floors and the basement was probably the most,

one of the most interesting parts. (choral music) i am at the notre dame cathedral, which is right in thecenter of ho chi minh city. and this is one of themost important landmarks and churches, catholic cathedrals, built in the neo-romanesque style. the most noticeable features of the church are the 40 meter high towers, spires,

the duo of them on either side. and this is a beautiful,a beautiful cathedral and just a really great environment here in ho chi minh city, so this is a place you mustvisit when you are here. (choral music) right now i am at thecentral post office in saigon and it's actually right across the street from the cathedral of notre dame.

one of the reasons it's very famous is because the architectwas gustave eiffel, who also designed the eiffel tower, and actually you can buy apost card to send it from here, but there's also some souvenirs. it's sort of turned intoa tourist attraction, but at the same time it's apractical tourist attraction and it's a really beautiful building. the wrought iron, greenwrought iron gates,

and what i also really like about inside is the beautifully tiled floor. right now i am at the war remnants museum, and it's actually very closeto the independence palace. this is not a fun, orexciting place to visit, but it is a place to come to pay respect and to remember the brutalhistory of the war in vietnam. outside are many displays of tanks and military weapons and vehicles.

and then inside it's actually mostly exhibitions of photographyshowing the horrible events and the, just the terrible violence that was a result of the war. (somber music) i'm standing outsidethe saigon opera house, which is one of the most recognizable landmark buildings inall of ho chi minh city, and it's a really beautiful building,

built in the french colonial period. i think it was built in 1897, but they also still have a show here. so you can purchasetickets to go to the show and then see the inside of it, or you can just see it from the outside and just admire the architecture and the french colonial building. (french music)

right now i am on dong khoi street. this is one of the mostfamous streets in saigon, especially for its upscale shopping malls and boutiques and hotels. so if you're looking todo some upscale shopping and get some fresh designer wear, you definitely need to come and explore the dong khoi area in ho chi minh city. alright i just came into the saigon zoo,

which is also on the sameproperty as the botanic gardens. so far it's just a reallybeautiful, tree lined, big huge trees. it's really lush and green and cool and quiet and peaceful in here compared to the loud, rowdy motor-scooterfilled roads outside. the zoo itself, the animal displays and cages are not fantastic. the animals don't look too happy,

but definitely the grounds and the botanic gardens are beautiful. i think that's what'sworth coming here for is definitely the botanic gardens. many people are likerelaxing on the grass, having picnics and taking naps. there are a few differentcoffee shops around, as well as places to eat ice cream, and even a full food court.

so i think this place isdefinitely worth coming just to walk around thereally nice and lush gardens and to just take a break from the outside scooter, motor traffic. alright, i am at the museum of traditional vietnamese medicine. i think she said it'sthe first private museum in saigon, or maybe even in vietnam. i mean it focuses on vietnamesetraditional medicine,

holistic medicine, lots of herbs and natural remedies. vietnamese medicine is veryinfluenced by chinese medicine, and yet at the same timeit pulls together medicine, vietnamese medicine from thenorth, as well as the south, and also throughout vietnam. this is just a very impressive,peaceful and quiet museum. and i think this is a great place to visit when you're in saigon.

she said that i can try on some traditional vietnamesemedicine man clothing. i am a vietnamese medicine man. whoa, this thing is heavy. you could lift weights with this thing. i am at the san art gallery in saigon and this is one of the few independent, nonprofit art gallery,creative spaces in the city. if you are a lover of artwhen you come to saigon,

you should definitely check out one of, either the san art gallery or there's another couple of art galleries as well in the city thatyou should check out. (upbeat music) we are at turtle lake, which is this roundabout rightin the heart of saigon. and this is a very popular place for, especially young people to hang out.

it's so action packed,but people are nice, and people are just allhaving a great time. i think that's, that's one ofthe great things about vietnam is that people, peoplegenuinely have a great time and enjoy socializingand just hanging out, and i think just enjoying life. (upbeat oriental music) (traffic moving) right now i am at ben thanh market,

which is right in the center of saigon and surrounded by a giant roundabout. this is one of the mostfamous markets in the city. basically everything you can imagine is available to purchasehere, souvenirs, food. there are lots of likedried fruit and snacks, and as well as there aresome food stalls as well. but this is a very central, saigon market that you should visit when you're in town.

i am in the phu my hungarea, or sort of a district. it's an upscale area of town, but it's also a newlydeveloped area of town. it's a really nice place to walk around. it has a totally different feel from the chaos of central saigon. it's much more relaxed and not nearly as busy with traffic. one of the most famous thingsis the starlight bridge,

with a waterfall that lights up in a rainbow of different colors. that is supposed to be one of the most romantic places in saigon. so if you are looking for a great hang out, date spot, you might wanna check it out. i just bought my ticket to the vietnamese traditional water puppet show

and i'm at the goldendragon water puppet theater. so now just waiting, my ticket is for the 6:30 pm performance and i'm excited to see thistraditional art performance. i'm at the history museum,the vietnamese history museum. and it's actually right,kind of in the same property as the botanic garden and the saigon zoo. the museum goes throughthe history of vietnam, starting from the bronzeperiod, bronze age period.

there are lots of pottery, lots of porcelain, weapons. also inside the museumthere's a big collection of angkor wat sculptures and reliefs and stone, stone carvings. so i think that was probablymy favorite part of the museum. so if you are interestedin the history of vietnam, as well as this wholeregion of southeast asia, this is a good museum

for you to visit when you're in saigon. i'm at shri restaurant and lounge and this is a beautiful rooftop restaurant and bar and lounge here in saigon. i think we're on the 23rd floor and there is just a wonderfulview of the skyline. but when you are in saigon, coming to a rooftop restaurant or bar is a great thing to do.

it's a relief to get away from the busy, congested streets of the city and to just hang out and relax. there are a couple ofdifferent rooftop bars and cafes that you canvisit when you're in saigon. and it's a great way, yeah, just to get away fromthe chaos of the city and just to enjoy theview and the relaxation. i am at the fine artsmuseum of ho chi minh city,

and actually i've beenwalking around already and, actually i'm quiteimpressed with the museum. it's very well done. there are lots ofexhibitions showcasing art, and especially paintings andsculptures and lacquer work. from the ancient all the way to the modern, contemporary pieces. part of the reason i'm so impressed is that it is housed in this

wonderful, elegant and just abeautiful colonial building. so definitely, if you enjoy art, this is a museum you'renot gonna want to miss i am at the jade emperor pagoda in saigon and this is one of the most important taoist temples in the city. and you can walk around outside where there are some trees and pigeons and it almost has thatcave-like feel to it.

it's kind of dark, incense fills the air. and then you can also walk inside and walk around inside as well. (gongs chiming) (motorcycles buzzing) one of my favorite things to do in saigon is to not only go to one of the big famous markets like ben thanh, but i also, i think one of my favoritethings about saigon and vietnam

are the amazing, local fresh markets where you can just buy everything from fish to vegetables to herbs to noodles. markets in saigon are amazing. and you should definitely checkout a local, fresh market. fresh wet market as well when you're here. (crowd talking) easily my favorite thingabout being in saigon, ho chi minh city is just the absolute

sensational amount of food available. so you will findvietnamese food everywhere from nice restaurantsto the side of the roads to some of my favoriterestaurants which are tucked away in quiet, peaceful alleys. uh, friendly alleys. and you'll just getwhiffs of delicious soup. you'll get bathed insmoke from grilling meat. basically every, everysense you can imagine
