More than 4 decades ago, Saigon was left as a rubble -- a city tore down by war; its citizens, scrambling their way towards living a normal life. Today, Saigon is reinvented as Ho Chi Minh City, its roads filled with their motorbikes, its streets filled with life and vigor. The city has truly transformed and redeemed itself from its dark past, becoming one of the increasingly famous destinations in South East Asia. With its delicious food, interesting stories, and cheap thrills, Ho Chi Minh City is definitely a place that you cannot miss.
With the war playing a huge role in the city's story, the Vietnamese have found a way to share its past through thought-provoking destinations such as the War Remnants Museum and the Cu Chi Tunnels in the nearby town 30 minutes from Ho Chi Minh City proper.
Prior the war, the country was dominated by the French, which is still highly evident in their structures. Some of the buildings that exemplify intricate French architecture are Saigon Opera House, Saigon Central Post Office, the Reunification Palace, and the Notre Dame Cathedral -- located just walking distance from one another.
If shopping is your jam, you can also shop in Ho Chi Minh’s massive markets that offer amazing items for an unbelievably cheap price. Benh Tanh Market and Saigon Market are two of the best places to visit. If you're into entertainment, you can also enjoy the Golden Dragon Water Puppet Festival all year round.
