Ho Chi Minh City

3.7

Pearl of the Far East

Formerly known in the West as Saigon and affectionately referred to as the "Pearl of the Far East," Ho Chi Minh City is a study of old and new, woven and piled together in a fast-paced urban hub. Between the attractions in Ho Chi Minh City that visitors should make a point to see--like the frozen-in-time government buildings, museum of the war with the United States, and the monumental Taoist, Buddhist, Catholic, and Islamic houses of worship--take time to explore street life in the city. Try the excellent street food, French breads and pastries, and samplings of all kinds of regional Vietnamese cuisine; bargain in the city's bustling markets; and dip in and out of its galleries and boutiques. Ho Chi Minh City is in Vietnam. You can plan Vietnam trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
