Embark on a city tour to admire Saigon’s historic landmarks including the Notre Dame Cathedral, a stunningly massive red-brick edifice with twin spires, a clear reminder that French once ruled this city (open only 3-4pm everyday otherwise just outside visit); the Central Post Office influenced by Renaissance architecture; and the former Presidential Palace, headquarters of the Saigon Government during the American war; the War Remnant Museum to have a deeper understanding of Vietnam history. Then, drive 6km to China Town to visit Binh Tay Market and Thien Hau temple built by the Cantonese congregation in the early 19th century. It is to honour the goddess of the sea and protector of fishermen. The temple’s interior courtyard is worth seeing with beautiful ceramic figurines and antiques shrouded in incense-smoke.

Next, we visit the sites of Angkor Thom, the Royal city that was built in the 11th Century. It was destroyed when the Chams from Vietnam rose up against the Khmers and invaded, sacking the city, and was subsequently renovated by King Jayavarman VII at the end of the 12th Century. Its vast walls, some 6m wide, 8m high and 13km in length contain many monuments. We begin by visiting the South Gate, flanked by demons and gods engaged in a tug of war to obtain the elixir of immortality. We continue to the Bayon, a temple mountain built by Jayavarman VII. It is situated in the centre of the city of Angkor Thom. It is a three-tiered pyramid with its entrance facing east. The central shrine is surrounded by 54 towers all crowned by gigantic faces, representing Avalokiteshvara but with the features of Jayavarman VII. We also visit other important sites in this immense walled city, including the pyramid of Baphuon, Phimean Akas, and the royal viewing stands known as the Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King. Lunch is served at local restaurant. In the afternoon, we explore Angkor Wat the largest religious buildings ever constructed. It is truly one of the wonders of the world. Believed to have been undertaken as a temple and mausoleum for King Suryavarman II at the peak of the Khmer empire in the first half of the 12th century, Angkor Wat is the best-preserved of the Angkorian temples”

Golfers will enjoy playing at the Angkor Golf Resort. The 18-hole golf course which is designed by Nick Faldo comprises an area of 142 hectares (7279 yards) land and it is an ideal location to play golf in Cambodia.
Highlights include the 2nd hole with the golfer having to pay attention to their drive. The approach shot to the smallest green on the course is tightly guarded by bunkers and palm trees. The par 5, 13th hole is designed with sand in mind, great cavernous bunkers on the tee shot and second shot await the golfer giving this hole a dramatic look and very strategic S shape.
Angkor Golf Resort offers the discerning golfer a championship golf course accompanied with 350 yards driving range with target greens. The clubhouse open plan layout and glass fronted design brings an exciting sense of being at the heart of a very special place. A fully stocked pro shop offers golfers a souvenir to return home with.
Located just 17 kilometers from the centre of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Golf & Country Club is one the nearest golf clubs to the city center. Vietnam Golf & Country Club is set amongst 300 hectares of land and includes two championship golf courses. Both courses play through mature woodlands with minimal land movement.
Open since November 1995, the 7,106-yard West Course at Vietnam Golf & Country Club features narrow tree-lined fairways and fast level greens. The par-72 championship course was Taiwanese designed and hosted the Vietnam Open Asian PGA Tour events in both 1995 and 1997.
The course winds its way through mostly oil palm trees offering challenging tee shots to narrow landing areas. Several holes also feature a lone tree in the center of the fairway. Even from the regular men’s tees, this course can provide a very long afternoon of golf, especially if drives are not on target.
The second course at Vietnam Golf & Country Club is the 6,946-yard East Course. Designed by Lee Trevino and opened in 1997, the East Course offers more generous fairways than the West Course but includes 110 well-positioned bunkers, water hazards, and undulating fast-rolling Bermuda Tifdwarf greens. The layout is so challenging even a seasoned tour pro will think twice before ‘going for it’.
