About Ho Chi Minh City


Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam and the most economically important. Ho Chi Minh City has a different atmosphere to Hanoi, which is in the far north of the country, and it also has different cuisine. Hanoi is the more popular tourist destination of the two main cities in Vietnam, partly because of its historic old quarter and partly because of its proximity to two of Vietnam’s other major tourist attractions, Sapa and Ha Long Bay. There are fewer major tourist destinations near Ho Chi Minh City and less short trip visitors will therefore choose travel into Ho Chi Minh City than they would Hanoi. Nonetheless, there are lots of places worth visiting in Ho Chi Minh City and a very accessible place for foreign visitors to stay in and around Pham Ngu Lao Street, which is often described as the ‘Khao San Road’ of Vietnam.
