Ho Chi Minh City Featured Hotels

Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon) is second the most important in Vietnam after Hanoi. While Hanoi is much more reserved, with the feel of a provincial city, Ho Chi Minh is a true metropolis where capitalism counts. 
Pace of life is much quicker than anywhere else in the country and the city is experiencing inevitable developments. The city is bathed by many rivers, arroyos and canals, the biggest river being the Saigon River. The Port of Saigon, established in 1862, is accessible to ships weighing up to 30,000 tons, a rare advantage for an inland river port.

Brand new office buildings and shiny skyscrapers sprout up every day; nevertheless the city manages to keep some of its oriental charm. The cyclo driver still awaits customers in the streets, temples filled with incense dominate the busy districts, street vendors sing their traditional selling songs and fortune tellers predict the future for the superstitious, just like they did for hundreds of years.

Places of interest include the Independence Palace, the Thien Hau Pagoda, Saigon's old post office, the Jade Temple, the myriad of museums and the Cho Lon Chinese quarter in District No.5. Cho Lon is a destination which is unable to miss when traveling Ho Chi Minh City. Cho Lon means ''big market,'' and the best place to begin your visit is at the overwhelming Binh Tay Market. Like Chinese districts in San Francisco, New York, London and Bangkok, Cho Lon is one of the oldest and most mysterious parts of Saigon.

A visit to Cho Lon, Ho Chi Minh City's Chinatown, can take an afternoon, if not an entire day. Although it is likely to be hot and crowded, take your time here. The variety of goods here is positively astounding and will give you uncanny glimpses into modern Vietnamese life. You can save from 20% to 40% if you bargain.

Not far from Saigon are the legendary Cu Chi Tunnels The tunnels are an incredible network of tiny underground passages dug by the Viet Cong to combat the US. The fit can squeeze underground with a guide and crawl into the amazing war rooms, secret entrances and see vicious booby traps in the bomb-blasted woods. There is a touristy side to it but it's an intriguing insight into one the fiercest battles of the war. It must have been hell for both sides.

Ho Chi Minh City is a year-round destination and even the rainfalls of the rainy season (May to October) are over in a couple of hours, giving way to sun, the city feeling refreshed.
