Ho Chi Minh City (Phu My), Vietnam

Phu My is a cruise port located 40 miles southeast of the famed Pearl of the Far East: Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon). Tours take cruisers to the bustling metropolis, where they’re greeted by the warm and energetic atmosphere. Strike a bargain at the Ben Thanh Market, the perfect place to snag locally made goods like Vietnamese silks and bamboo products as well as feast on authentic street eats from savory banh mi sandwiches to steaming bowls of pho. Other excursions visit the sights of the Jade Emperor Pagoda, an active shrine that touts a pond of hungry tortoises waiting for a tasty treat from temple-goers, and the 1880 Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica. History lovers can journey underground to the impressive 155-mile network of Cu Chi Tunnels—complete with living spaces and booby traps—that acted as a military base for the Viet Cong guerrillas during the Vietnam War.
