Ho Chi Min City, formerly known as Saigon, is Vietnam’s largest city, with a population of 8.4 million.

About Ho Chi Min City

Although Ho Chi Min City today is dominated by modern high-rise buildings, it still has many examples of French colonial architecture. It provides a cornucopia of restaurants and bars, from pavement stalls to the most sophisticated establishments, with a corresponding range of prices. Nightlife is cosmopolitan, and its shopper’s paradise includes modern shopping centres, trendy boutiques, and traditional street markets.

Worthwhile excursions

The Ho Chi Minh City Tour is well worth considering. You will be driven along the French-built boulevards in the city centre, and on to the Norodom Palace; then to the War Remnants Museum and the imposing Central Post Office; then on to the Notre Dame Cathedral and City Hall; and finally to the amazing Ben Thanh Market.

Another fine tour is to the Cu Chi Tunnels. You will travel 60 kilometers through green paddy fields, stopping at rubber plantation on the way. Then you will head for the Cu Chi Tunnels, which Viet Kong fighters used during the Vietnam War.

Yet another worthwhile visit is to the Mekong Delta, where the Mekong River meets the Gulf of Thailand in one of Vietnam’s most fertile regions. This is the home of hundreds of paddy fields and fruit orchards and a water world of floating markets and river life.
