  • Visit War Remnants Museum

The War Remnants Museum is an excellent way to learn about what happened during the Vietnam War. The museum is divided into five sections: American Aggression Against Vietnam; Vietnamese Resistance Movements; US Crimes Against Humanity; American War Crimes Against the Vietnamese People; and Consequences of Vietnamese Resistance Movements. Each section explores a different aspect of this conflict while allowing visitors to see firsthand what it was like on both sides during those years of war (and even today). If you want an insider’s look at how people felt about being caught up in this global event then visiting this museum will help provide insight into their feelings and experiences with both sides of their country’s involvement in this long war.

  • How To Get There From Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City)

If you’re coming from Saigon then one option would be by bus on Highway 362 which will take about seven hours depending on traffic conditions along this route so plan accordingly before leaving home just in case any delays occur during this process! It’s important though not just because we don’t want our guests being late but also because they need enough time too if possible so try not getting stuck behind slow traffic or anything like that either because if too many cars pile up together then no one will move forward anymore; thus making travel time longer than expected.”
