If the busy streets within the city don’t rock your boat, then you may need to visit the luscious countryside just outside Ho Chi Minh. The swampland, rice paddle and green foliage all collaborate to make the city’s outskirts worth the tour.
Ho Chi Minh is renowned for its delicacies. The locals are not afraid to be as inventive as it takes with their food either. Traditional food is in plenty everywhere you look. Likewise, new and innovative food is also in plenty around the city. What is more, you can find all these different foods anywhere in Saigon’s streets.
Ho Chi Minh has several buildings and locations that offer greatest insight into the history of Vietnam. For example, you will find the War Remnants Museum right inside this city. The Cu Chi Channels, which are located here, also form a significant part of the Vietnamese history. If you are a history buff, Saigon is the city for you.
