Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam

Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon is considered by many as the Pearl of the Orient for its rich 400-year history and diverse culture. This dynamic city presents an essence of the French-European colonial era with architectural landmarks like the Notre-Dame Cathedral and the 19th century Central Post Office and blends with modern-day designer boutiques, chic bars, traditional wooden stores selling silks, spices, and local produce.

The bustling Bế n Thành Market is the place to be if you want to savour the distinctive Vietnamese cuisine from the many street stalls, try the popular Goi Cuon, spring roll and Cha Ca, sautéed white fish with noodles and peanuts.
