Explore Ho Chi Minh City
with THG Holidays
Ho Chi Minh City may not have the charm and elegance of Vietnams capital, Hanoi, but there is something invigorating and intoxicating about the bustling streets and waterside activity. Dramatic high-rise buildings dominate the shabby French colonial ones that are tucked away at their feet, while saffron-robed monks collecting alms walk past glitzy car showrooms and karaoke bars. With a population of nearly seven million, Ho Chi Minh City (still known as Saigon), is Vietnams largest and most exciting city.
Bustling, booming, crowded, noisy - all words that barely scratch the surface of the addictive and often mesmerising chaos that is Saigon. And yet there are the elegant colonial French boulevards and buildings, the Cathedral, the riverfront, the quiet moments at a sidewalk cafe watching the world literally go by you at breakneck speed. Saigon. A city that is almost indescribable and completely unforgettable.
