Places to visit in Ho Chi Minh City


Ho Chi Minh City is sometimes overlooked by foreign tourists in favour of Hanoi, which has an historic Old Quarter and is much nearer to Vietnam’s two major tourist attractions: Sapa and Ha Long Bay. In fact in some ways Ho Chi Minh is actually the more exciting and interesting of Vietnam’s two major towns. Ho Chi Minh City is not only the largest city in Vietnam, but also richest and the city where the French colonial government spent the most money building and improving the city. The south of Vietnam also has its own very rich and distinctive culture and this evident in Ho Chi Minh City, the way of life of its residents and the local cuisine.

There are many places to visit in Ho Chi Minh City, but these are probably the best:

  • Ben Thanh Market: A market has operated in this city centre location since the start of the 17th Century. In 1912 the French Government built a grand new building for Ben Thanh Market which is still in use today.  
  • Central Post Office: This still functioning post office in Ho Chi Minh City was first opened in 1891 and, with the addition of a portrait of Ho Chi Minh and some badly conceived souvenir shops, it still looks like it did, inside and out, over 100 years.
  • Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral: Another French built structure, this enormous Catholic church bears more than a passing resemblance to the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. 
  • Tao Dan Park: The main city centre park in Ho Chi Minh City which is much loved and much used by the city’s residents. The park contains outdoor gyms, sculpture park, a temple and some cafes which are famous for being where older local men come to compare caged birds and drink coffee.
