CITY OF SOUNDS
Ho Chi Minh is a bustling Asian metropolis, a veritable fusion of energy and flavours. Wander through timeless alleys or teeming markets. Keep your camera busy with its unique combination of Vietnamese, Chinese and European architecture while relishing its harmonious blend of traditional values with northern and western cultural features. Here in Saigon, you can pursue eating, drinking and shopping full-time.
Ride down central Ho Chi Minh on the 'cyclo' bicycle taxi and visit the War Remnants Museum, a reminder of Vietnam's past. Stop at the Emperor Jade Pagoda and inhale the sweet aroma of incense while marvelling at intricately carved features. For beach soaks, head towards idyllic Phan Thiet. For an unrivalled market experience, visit the Ben Tanh Market where rainbow-coloured silk fill stalls and elbow your way through lively hagglers.
