Differences between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City is very different to Hanoi, culturally, historically and architecturally. Hanoi was established a lot earlier (in the 11th Century) than Ho Chi Minh City, which was established in the 17th Century. Ho Chi Minh City has also been more strongly influenced by French culture.
French Influence on Ho Chi Minh City
During the period when Vietnam was part of French Indo-China up to 10% of the city’s residents were French nationals. The French colonialists commissioned lots of European style buildings in Ho Chi Minh City and the cultural influence is evident in the city’s cuisine, most famously in the the banh mi sandwich which is traditionally made from french style bread with pate as a base for more South East Asian style fillings.
The best known of Ho Chi Minh City’s tourist attractions are clustered in District 1 of the city, not too far from the Pham Ngu Lao area of the city were the majority of foreign visitors to the city stay. Pham Ngu Lao has many budget hotels, as well as restaurants and bars, which cater to the tastes of foreign visitors and stay open much later than most restaurants catering solely to a local clientele.
Attractions in District 1
The centre of Ho Chi Minh has attractions like Saigon Opera House, Saigon City, Saigon Central Post Office, Ben Thanh Market and Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral all within easy walking distance of each other. Ho Chi Minh City is proud of its colonial era architecture which is its top tourist attraction.
Tao Dan Park
For somewhere much more traditionally Vietnamese we recommend a visit to Tao Dan Park. Tao Dan Market is the city’s largest park and full of interesting statues and monuments. Local people make good use of the park for recreation and older men famously spend time in the park’s tea houses comparing collections of caged song birds.
