With its streets bustling in organised chaos with motorbikes, and its architecture screaming French influences, get ready to be shookt and feel your sense of wanderlust fulfilled.
Ho Chi Minh City (formerly called Saigon) in Southern Vietnam is a perfect destination to book a trip to. Not only are the attractions very accessible, but the food and accommodations are very affordable too. And if you’re looking for a long weekend destination, the city lends itself very friendly to a 72-hour (or less!) tour.
Quick Country Destination / Guide
Largely popular for its pivotal role in the Vietnam War, Ho Chi Minh has become an amalgamation of old-meets-new. 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.
