ABOUT HO CHI MINH CITY
Ho Chi Minh City (commonly known as Saigon) is a city in southern Vietnam famous for the pivotal role it played in the Vietnam War. Ho Chi Minh City is one of the most visited destinations in Vietnam, popular tourist destination due to its fascinating culture, classic French architecture, and sleek skyscrapers as well as ornate temples and pagodas. The city is also filled with rooftop bars that overlook Saigon and beyond, while fantastic restaurants offer a combination of French, Chinese, and, of course, local Vietnamese cuisine.
District 1 is most of Saigon’s historical landmarks, from classic French architecture to preserved wreckages of American war planes. Whether you’re exploring on foot or opting for a cyclo tour, make sure you visit the Reunification Palace and Notre Dame Cathedral on Nguyen Du Street, the War Remnants Museum on Vo Van Tan Street, the Museum of Ho Chi Minh City on Ly Tu Trong Street, the History Museum on Nguyen Binh Khiem Street, and the ornate Saigon Post Office on Cong Xa Paris.
Explore Saigon’s Local Markets: popular venues such as Ben Thanh and Binh Tay with local vendors selling fresh produce, household supplies, and handicrafts. We also highly recommend visiting on an empty stomach as you get to enjoy authentic Vietnamese street food
There are also a number of great day trips that can be done from the site, the famous Cu Chi Tunnels where the resistance launched sneak attacks on the US forces based in Saigon and the Mekong Delta.
The largest city in the country, with over 6 million inhabitants, Saigon is a crowded, fast, noisy, and overwhelming place at first.
