I am often in this position and even though I know HCMC very well I still like to have a long lunch at a footpath place, and just peoplewatch around Pham Ngu Lao Street.

Cheers Ross

Head to the top/ viewing platform of the tallest building (cant remember its name!!!!) for great views of HCMC. From memory it cost about $10

Also enjoyed 'people watching' and took time to sit in park opposite Ben Than market.... always a student wanting a chat and plenty to see.

Enjoy !

i think Ben Thanh shopping is good idea to buy some souvenir for friends & family, then could feel the atmosphere of local life.

Shopping, eating awesome street food, people watching, and having cold beers at some of the many great little bars..Your time will pass all too quickly!

The tower Chris545 refers to is the Bitexco Tower. Very cool building. http://www.bitexcofinancialtower.com/

The Skydeck is on the 49th floor.
