Ho Chi Minh City

Located in the transition zone between the Southeast and Southwest of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City comprises 19 districts and 5 districts. Not only is the city a major economic, cultural, and education center, but it is also a famous destination that attracts many domestic and foreign tourists.

Traffic is one of the things that impress most visitors, especially foreign tourists. Traffic in the rush hours still takes place in the central roads; many tourists think this is the “craziest” thing of the city.

Named as the “Pearl of the Far East”, Saigon (a former name of Ho Chi Minh City) is increasingly developing with countless high-rise buildings being built. However, another view of Saigon, besides the magnificent life, there are old apartment blocks of the local people with countless daily worries. But, the city always stands out, shimmering by the Saigon River every night. The east-west avenue lits up in the night. The young enthusiastic city also never sleeps because the nightlife activities of Saigon are extremely exciting.

Notre Dame Cathedral preserves ancient French architecture amid the bustling life in Saigon. The church is also one of the well-known architectural works that attract many visitors, as well as other famous attractions in Ho Chi Minh such as the War Museum, Cu Chi Tunnels …

Another feature of this city is the cuisine that is also a highlight to attract visitors coming here. It is because the culinary culture of Saigon is very diverse, covering many delicious dishes from different regions.

Indeed, Saigon welcomes millions of tourists to visit the city every year and is an essential gateway to travel to different destinations, such as Mekong Delta, Mui Ne, Da Lat and other famous landmarks of Vietnam.
