Ho Chi Minh City

Formerly known as Saigon, the capital of Southern Vietnam was baptised Ho Chi Minh City after the Vietnam war. This rapidly-developing metropolis is buzzing with restaurants, bars and shopping centres. At night, the city transforms into a Tokyo-esque light-fest, with coloured lights beaming from high-rise buildings. Vibrant and fast-paced, Ho Chi Minh even has the greatest number of motorcycles in the world! Modernity is met by tradition, however, as the city is also renowned for its French colonial buildings, internationally-acclaimed museums and historic landmarks.
