Build Your Own Trip

Ho Chi Minh City, also known with its former name Saigon, is a frenetic Asian city of markets, streets clogged with scooters, street-side food stalls, as well as foreign restaurants, office blocks and shopping malls. It is Vietnam’s business and finance hub, and also the most developed city in the country. Saigon is an exotic city with a prominent history. Life never seems to slow down in this city and the rate of progress over the last few years has been just as remarkable.

Today, the city’s core is still adorned with wide elegant boulevards and historic French colonial buildings. The most astonishing structures in the city centre are the Reunification Palace, the City Hall, the Municipal Theatre (or the Opera House), the City Post Office, the City People’s Court, and the Notre-Dame Cathedral.

Bucket List for Ho Chi Minh City

Visit popular attractions

You haven’t truly seen the city if you’ve not been to its historic sites. The landmarks in HCMC tell a lot about its history through the two wars and about its rapid development. It offers a nice combination of age-old buildings, impressive pagodas and skyscrapers.

Experience the city nightlife

HCMC has the best nightlife in Vietnam. From bars and nightclubs, live music bars to coffee shops that open 24 hours, visitors can enjoy a cup of fresh beer and watch the streets lightened up at night, join the locals in the clubs or sit down and have a good bowl of hot noodles in the evening.

Explore Cu Chi Tunnels

Cu Chi Tunnels was used by the Viet Cong soldiers during the war with the Americans. The underground space was divided into different rooms, with lots of traps set up to prevent the enemies from coming down and getting to important parts of the tunnel system.

Try the local dishes

HCMC is a paradise for foodies, and even if you’re not one, you can still enjoy the many dishes of this city. Try Com Tam, Banh Mi, Sup Cua, Bun Bo, Banh Xeo, etc. Good street food is available anywhere you look in HCMC, and they are sold at a very reasonable price.

Embark on a trip to see Mekong Delta

The scenery of life in Mekong Delta is sure a sight to behold, as every activity of normal life happens on the water body. It’s a very nice experience as you travel along the canals and waterways to visit the local cottages and watch as people sell many items from clothes to fresh fruits and food right on their boats.
