Ho Chi Minh

Pulsating with boundless passion and energy, Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is Vietnam’s largest city and economic heartland. An urban pandemonium, the city’s traffic-clogged streets, sidewalk cafes, bustling markets and crumbling wood shops are a surreal attraction within themselves. Thanks to the Vietnamese economic boom, Ho Chi Minh City is witnessing a massive wave of development placing it among the undisputed rising stars of the region.

Hotels

A rapidly rising, cosmopolitan city, Ho Chi Minh City has plenty of low-priced, reasonable and luxury hotels suiting all types of traveler. A special mention must be made of the striking number of international hotel chains putting shop in the city thanks to the Vietnamese economic boom.

Food & Drink

Offering a staggering range of local and international cuisines, Ho Chi Minh City is the culinary star of Vietnam, where you’ll be spoilt for choice. Taste the local street-side delicacies or dine away sumptuously at the city’s exclusive restaurants offering Asian-fusion, Vietnamese and international food items in a gorgeous setting.

Shopping

Whether it’s arts and handicrafts, designer clothes, antiques, ceramics or even electronic items, Ho Chi Minh City’s bustling bazaars, stylish boutiques, crowded shopping plazas and Western-style luxury malls are the answer to your shopping appetite.

Nightlife

Witnessing a mighty resurgence of the nightlife industry that made the city so prominent and notorious both before and during the Vietnam War, Ho Chi Minh City is now thriving with nightclubs, bars, pubs and lounges that cater to an increasing number expats, tourists as well as affluent natives.

Spa

Most of Ho Chi Minh City’s spas, especially the high-end ones, are located in the city’s many international hotels such as the Mövenpick Hotel Saigon, Park Hyatt Saigon and the Renaissance Riverside Hotel.
