Ho Chi Minh City - Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, which was previously known as Saigon for many years under French rule, offers an amazing mix of modern and traditional, along with great shopping and amazing architecture. The French influence is still present today in the stunning French architecture, including Vietnam’s own Notre Dame Cathedral and the old Central Post Office.
A trip to Ho Chi Minh today is not to be missed, as it is arguably Vietnam’s best melting pot of great shopping, stunning sights, and delicious cuisine. From Ben Thanh Market with its narrow aisles crammed with an abundance of items to Dong Khoi Street brimming with upmarket brand names, you will love shopping here.
A city tour is a must to understand the history and every visit to Saigon must include the amazing Cu Chi Tunnels, the only way to literally uncover the local experience of the US-Vietnam War. Then take your pick from boutique breweries, modern shopping malls, and cuisine from every corner of the world including some amazing fine dining – or enjoy dinner with a view on a river cruise.
