Temple in Ho Chi Minh Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh


Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is Vietnam’s high-octane city of commerce and culture that has driven the whole country forward with its dynamism.

A chaotic whirl, the city breathes life and vitality into all who settle here – visitors cannot help but be hauled along for the ride.
From the finest of hotels to the cheapest of guesthouses, the classiest of restaurants to the tastiest of street stalls, the choicest of boutiques to the scrum of the markets, Saigon is a city of contrasts.
