Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam. Often referred to by its former Name Saigon, the city is the cultural and economic centre of Vietnam with a population of seven million people, however, it stills manages to preserve a large amount of its traditions and culture.
This city has endured more than most other cities but it still offers so much for visitors to see and do. Explore the Historical Museum which has artefacts from the Tran and Le Dynasties, the Bronze Age and from Agnor Watt. Explore Ho Chi Minh like a local by visiting the largest market in the city which is known as Ben Thanh Market. See exhibits of crimes committed during the Vietnam War by Vietnamese and Americans, as well as a guillotine used by french colonialists as recently as 1920 at the War Remnants Museum. Also make sure you stop by Chinatown and visit the Thien Hau Temple.
Everywhere in this lively city there is a positive and energetic vibe. Many large multinational organisations have established offices here; however, Ho Chi Minh City has still managed to preserve its individual Vietnamese style.
Not far from Ho Chi Minh City you will find fantastic beaches situated along the coast and tall mountain islands. Throughout Vietnam, wherever you go, you will come into contact with the allure and generosity of its warm and welcoming people.
