Ho Chi Minh City (formerly called Saigon) in Southern Vietnam is a perfect destination to book a trip to.

Named after the leader of the North Vietnamese when war with America broke out, Ho Chi Minh City is popular for its French colonial landmarks, some of which are made entirely from materials coming from France. Feast on some legit Pho and Banh Mi while watching pedestrians dodge the Vietnamese on motorbikes.
