Hello Ho Chi Minh City!
Vietnam's biggest city has been attracting foreign visitors for decades. This 8-million people metropolis boasts a lively and vibrant atmosphere that may appear chaotic, although there is a method to the city's madness and discovering it is part of the experience. French influence is still evident in some majestic colonial buildings that have been beautifully preserved (such as the Opera House or the Central Post Office) and also in the strong cafe culture, which offers an opportunity to sit back and take a break from the hectic pace of the city. In fact, eating and drinking are some of the best and most rewarding things to do in Ho Chi Minh City, and as you'll soon discover, there's no better way of getting to know a culture than through its cuisine.
Entertainment options are also wide-ranging, from sophisticated bars and pubs to busy nightclubs, 24/7 coffee shops and more. To top it off, the city's events calendar offers many opportunities to celebrate the local culture and history alongside the welcoming locals, especially during special occasions like Vietnamese New Year and Independence Day.
If all this sounds appealing, why not discover for yourself the alluring magnetism of this Vietnamese city on your next holiday?
