HO CHI MINH CITY

Overview

Ho Chi Minh is the largest metropolis of Indochina, and perhaps will be a central airport of Southeast Asia again with a new larger airport and many attractions. This is an irregular harmony of charming French buildings and churches, shadowy streets, enthralling local-styled markets and modern skyscrapers. More than any cities of Indochina, Saigon is also a mixture of different religions from Buddhism, Catholicism, Protestant, Islam, Hindu to local religions called ‘’Cao Dai’’ and ‘’Hoa Hao’’, thus the city is split into different quarters with distinctive colors. Within a short time, visitors can choose to discover charming District 1 with theatres, leafy streets and leisurely sidewalk café, to lose themselves at fascinating “China Town”, or to climb up Bitexco Tower for a city panorama and taste foods from numerous cuisines. Saigon is also an ideal place for long-term living and working in Indochina. Connected with Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia by short air, river and landways, Saigon has quickly become the first place for innovation, creativeness and new tour experiments in Vietnam, despite its lack of long history and culture. Moreover, the city is also becoming a good transit for the best beaches in Asia, including Con Dao and Phu Quoc islands or plages on the Southern coastline. During the last ten years, the trips connecting Saigon with East Cambodia by both riverway and landway has positioned Saigon as a center of deluxe Mekong cruise tours, as well as a stopover for many sea cruiser ships. Thanks to new facilities and huge investments, Saigon is becoming a point not only in Vietnam but also on the map of Asia growing destinations.
