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. Plan the details of your Ho Chi Minh City holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Vietnam road trip planning website.
