Packed with history in its name alone, the city boasts a beautiful mix of traditional and modern architecture. The economy has boomed in the last decade; however, make sure you carry cash as you may struggle to find somewhere that takes card! Diverse and multi-cultural, the city is inclusive and welcome – it also helps that Vietnam is known for its extensive coffee culture, so you don’t have to compromise on your favourite blend.
You can also enjoy the mix of Vietnamese and French architecture, the delicious street food or even a relaxing massage in one of the many Ho Chi Minh City spas. If you ever want to feel like you’re in Europe, take a trip down to the Central Post Office, which was designed by no other than Gustave Eiffel!
