    the usual tourist attractions in the city is quite limited and can be done within a day. As they are relatively close to each other, you can cover them even within half a day. You can try to go for a day or two trip to the Mekong Delta. (quite relaxing)

    Otherwise you can head to Ben Thanh market to let your wife shop for sourvenirs. I personally think that the things there are not nice. For youngsters perhaps.

    I recommend Elios Hotel. The owner I heard is a Singaporean. Clean and affordable along the famous street Pham Gu Lao(spelling).
