    It is a place to which few tourists arrive, except for those that are looking for precisely that stage France lost Indochina.

Where to stay in Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City absorbs all kinds of travelers, from the swarms of young backpackers on tight budgets to traveling businesspeople and luxury experience seekers. District 1 is the place to stay for proximity to sights, nightlife, and restaurants. Hostels around Pham Ngu Lao draw backpackers looking for the basics, small bed and breakfasts offer quieter and more private options for just a slightly higher price, and smart mid-range and luxury hotels provide immaculate service and indoor spas and pools.
