Ho Chi Minh City is Vietnam’s major port and largest metropolis, with an estimated population of over eight million people. For many, Saigon – as it’s still called by all – can seem to be one chaotic mess of traffic-clogged roads and urban bustle. But most of them have since been seduced by the hidden charms of one of Southeast Asia’s liveliest cities.

Located on the Saigon River, Ho Chi Minh City is Vietnam’s major port and largest metropolis, with an estimated population of over eight million people. For many, Saigon – as it’s still called by all – can seem to be one chaotic mess of traffic-clogged roads and urban bustle. But most of them have since been seduced by the hidden charms of one of Southeast Asia’s liveliest cities.

Teeming markets, sidewalk cafés, massage and acupuncture clinics, centuries-old pagodas, sleek skyscrapers and ramshackle wooden shops selling silk, spices, baskets and handmade furniture all vie for attention amidst this surreal multi-colored city.

Saigon must-sees include the Vietnam History Museum; the grisly War Remnants Museum; and Cholon, the Chinese District, with its pagodas and exotic stores. Dong Khoi Street — formerly fashionable Rue Catinat during the French era and Tu Do, or Freedom Street, during the Vietnam War — is a strip of grand hotels, some dating from the colonial era, chic shops and boutiques, and lots of fine dining and cafes.
