Ho Chi Minh in detail

Discover the limitless energy of Ho Chi Minh City, more famously known as Saigon. This thriving metropolis stops for nobody so get ready to embrace the dizzying speed at which everyday Ho Chi Minh life hurtles.

Ho Chi Minh is home to a selection of brilliant tourist attractions, but the real enjoyment of the destination comes from exploring it on foot. Wander the dark alleyways, passing ancient pagodas and bustling marketplaces. Smell the spices and pass the rickety wooden shops from which to purchase silks and baskets. Then there is the modern-day Saigon to experience; expect impressive skyscrapers, designer shopping opportunities and sophisticated eateries aplenty.

When you wish to try traditional sightseeing, start with a visit to the Giac Vien Pagoda known for its welcoming yet tranquil atmosphere. Next, head to the History Museum and War Remnants Museum to learn more about the locality. Don’t forget to sample the daring Ho Chi Minh cuisine, though international eateries are present, you must try Vietnamese delicacies like half-hatched duck eggs.
