The short answer is NO. I dont want to get into why you want to cram so much in the short space of half a day, but it is unrealistic unless you are in a taxi and drive past these pagodas and say you have been to them..
Someone who is living in HCMC might be able to help you plan a feasible itinerary for half a day.. which pagodas you can visit or you must visit.
Enjoy HCMC.
For your information there is also an active Hindou temple in HCMC where many vietnamese go to worship!

I completely agree with Cochinjew. You're spreading yourself very thin on an impossible task to complete in half a day.

I've visited a few Pagodas around town and found them each to be interesting enough to stay for at least a couple hours each to admire the beauty and austerity of the life in the pagodas. One pagoda I visited took care of about 40 aged homeless seniors. I was able to sit with the English-speaking monk to learn about his and the pagoda's efforts. I stayed for the day and got a lot more out of that visit than if I visited many pagodas. After visiting the senior residents and seeing the care given them, I was moved enough to give a good sized donation knowing the money would be used properly. As well, I left there with a newfound confidence in some religious efforts and I have a great memory of a monk on a mission. So, what I'm trying to say is "It's not the quantity of the number of pagoda visits, but what you get out of each visit." I hope I don't sound like I'm lecturing, it's just my take on Pagoda visits.

Dear Mike,

You doesn't sound like lecturing me:) Actually i do agreed with your views.

It's seemed that i am too obsessed with visiting Pagodas.

Do you think 7 days of car rental with driver at 500USD is ok?

Re: Hcmc Pagoda Tour

by mikeinvietnam

$500 does seem reasonable if it includes petrol, driver and driver's meals and accommodations. Check with some other vendors like Mai Linh car rental for comparisons. Just make sure you know all related costs up front. Ask specifically if there are any additional fees at the end of the trip.

Travel Tips for Ho Chi Minh City

win some or lose some??

by travel_holic

$140 that's probably price for a private trip for 2 of you. Someone mention $90 for private car, so $140 for full package is reasonable.
If you can afford this, you'll have guide for yourself, that's much better Sheridan Irish Bar

Do a drive in the countryside!

by balhannah

This tip goes for any city in Vietnam, try and go for a tour out in the countryside as this is where you see villages and people getting on with their daily lives......the further out....the better.

Some sights I saw were...........

* Animals on motorbikes..........
* Water buffaloes & carts in the villages.........
* I saw a live oxen strapped to a back of a motorbike..........
* I saw a Coffin strapped to the back of a motorbike......
* Six people on a bike..... the record so far seen, and I doubt if they could fit any more.....
* villagers working in the Rice Paddies....
* A vietnamese burial service taking place....

Plus, much, much more>......
Unusual shaped hay stacks....

Ao dai

by hassan_abu

A lasting impression for any visitor to Vietnam is the beauty of the women dressed in their ao dais. Girls dressed in white pick their way through muddy streets going home from school or sail by in a graceful chatter on their bikes.

Pronounced 'ao yai' in the south, but 'ao zai' in the north, the color is indicative of the wearer's age and status. Young girls wear pure white, fully lined outfits symbolizing their purity. As they grow older but are still unmarried they move into soft pastel shades. Only married women wear gowns in strong, rich colors, usually over white or black pants.

Unless u r a Math genius, u need a calculator.

by lukluk_wal_marjan

1. Rain Coat
A rain coat is advisable during the monsoon season. The very thin plastic type disposable rain coat is sold everywhere in HCMC. During my trip to Mekong tour, bought 1 piece (cost less than 1 USD) to cover my fiancee's camera.

2. Cap
The sun may be too hot for you. Good to have one if you plan to be on foot going around the city. Otherwise you can opt for Vietnamese raw hat. Dont forget your sun glass to go with it! Calculator.

You need this to bargain when you go for shopping. Its easier rather than saying/arguing out loud for the price you want. It will also help u in converting the Viet Dong quoted to your home currency so that u can know whether the price is reasonable or not.

Thich Quang Duc Memorial

by Blatherwick

In 1963, after four years of increased oppression by the Diem government towards Buddhist priests and the Buddhist community, a monk by the name of Thich Quang Duc perfomed an act to highlight Buddhist demands for religious equality in South Vietnam that was flashed around the world by television. At midday, on June 11, 1963, he took a ride to the corner of Phan Dinh Phung and Le Van Duyet in central Saigon (now Nguyen Dinh Chieu and Cach Mang Thang Tam Street). Pouring petrol over himself, he sat in the middle of the corner, struck a match, and immolated himself. His body was consumed, and all that remained was his heart. Later when his later when the Buddhist community tried to cremate his heart it remained intact.

A memorial to this act is located where the immolation occurred, at the corner of Nguyen Dinh Chieu and Cach Mang Thang Tam Street.
