with 3 nights you might spend a day on a walking tour of the downtown area ( maps available everywhere) and see the local attractions such as the opera house, Reunification Palac and other locales. There is also the Ben Thanh market to enjoy.

After that, you could do a morning tour to the Cu Chi Tunnels and perhaps a day tour to the Mekong Delta. Do not worry.... you will find plentsy of things to do. Just visit one of the many local tour offices for ideas.

3nights in Ho Chi Minh city is enough to explore the city.

The Sai Gon half day city tour will be recommended as the best way to see what the largest city in Viet Nam look like . The normal schedule is started at 8:30Am then finished around 2:00 Pm after lunch. War museum, the former Presidential Palace, Notre Dam Cathedral, Central Post Office, Hotel De Ville, the Opera House are recommended for the walking tour in the downtown of Sai Gon. should spend a short visit in Cho Lon ( China Town ) to see the other side of the city if you like .Pho ( Vietnamese Rice Noodle Soup ) , Banh Xeo ( Pan cake ) , Spring rolls, Canh Chua ( sweet and sour soup in southern style), stewing fish in clay pot ... are recommended. the famous Pho is Pho Hoa, Pho 24 , Pho 2000, but you should try Pho Hoa.

Another half day to visit Cu Chi tunnels is good choice. then you have half day rest in Sai Gon to do some shopping at the local market or some shopping center.

Mekong delta is the best place to explore the country side of Viet Nam. One day is good . My Tho - Ben Tre, Cai Be - Vinh Long are the most popular tours to the delta . But it seem have many touristy places in the schedules. let search some local travel agent which famous about non-touristy place tour to the Mekong delta to get a special tour to the delta .

Cheers
