Saigon today is a city of contrasts, filled with skyscrapers such as the Bitexco Financial Tower with its sky deck looking down on traditional tourist haunts like the Ben Thanh Market, and historic landmarks such as the Reunification Palace or Chu Chi Tunnels. You can spend all day touring pagodas, temples, and churches, but do not miss the Giac Lam and Tortoise Pagodas. The Mariamman Hindu Temple near the Ben Thanh Market and the Notre Dame Cathedral are both worth a visit as well.
After a hard day tramping around the city, what you need is a place to cool down and relax. Based on your preferences, Ho Chi Minh City has all kinds of clubs. Jazz lovers can go to the Park Lounge in the Hyatt or to the Sax n' Art Jazz Club. If you want something stylish where you can relax and get some drinks, then try the Rex Hotel rooftop garden or Q Bar at the Opera House. If you need a hot vibe on the dance floor, then try Apocalypse Now, Lush, or the Shark Discotheque.
Your best day trip options are all likely to be along the coast. Hire a car in Ho Chi Minh City and head for VUNG TAU. From there, you can continue along the coast for slightly less than 3 hours past the hot springs at Binh Chau, and then La Gi all the way to Phan Thiet. This is about the most you can do along the coast for a day trip from Ho Chi Minh City. If you can stay overnight or for the weekend, the day trip can easily be converted into a coastal road trip all the way to Hanoi, because Vietnam is a thin long strip of coastal land sandwiched between Cambodia, Laos, China, and the South China Sea.
