I've been to Saigon for business and I wasn't able to see the whole city. I would love to spend a weekend there, just exploring!

I wanted to go to the War Remnants Museum last time I was there but did not have time. I was only in the city for a day and a half. Next time I am going to make sure I go!

I personally think it depends on your interests and where you are in life. Maybe if you're younger and single, hitting up bars and clubs might be more appealing than seeing temples (or vice versa). Or if you have kids with you, maybe museums would be more fun than nightclubs (or vice versa).

Saigon has a bit of everything for everyone and I think you can easily cram 48 hours filled with enjoyable things. I think making sure to snack and lunch on street food and reserve restaurants only for dinner time will save you time to do more as well.

Sounds like a great plan! I'd also recommend taking a few hours to explore the local markets and soak up some of the city's vibrant culture.

Saigon is a great place to visit for 48 hours. You can easily find something to do thanks to the variety of activities available. I would recommend snacking on street food and reserving restaurants only for dinner time in order to save time to do more.

I think the best thing to do when visiting Saigon is to just walk around and explore. There are so many beautiful things to see, and you'll never run out of places to go!

-I visited Saigon a few months ago and loved it. The city has a lot to offer tourists, and the people are friendly and welcoming.

I would also recommend spending time doing something you're not used to doing, like going on a tour. You'll have a great time and learn a lot.

@TheDunns7 Exploring the street food scene in Saigon is a must-do activity during your 48 hours stay. From banh mi to pho, you'll be amazed at the variety and deliciousness of the local cuisine.

The best way to spend 48 hours in Saigon is to take a taxi to the airport and then take a flight to Hanoi.

I'm so glad I took the bus to the city's center and walked around! I got to see so many amazing things that I would have missed if I had taken a different mode of transportation.
