Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City)
One of the grand cities of Asia and a must-see on any trip to
Vietnam, Saigon has cosmopolitan charm to spare, fine pagodas,
museums, markets, and Caodai Temples.
Formerly South Vietnam's capital city, Saigon is still the
center of business, modern culture and development in this growing
nation. The whole metropolitan area is now called Ho Chi Minh City;
however, the central core of the city, District One, is still known
as Saigon. Saigon retains some of its historic charms while
plunging headlong into the economic development that is the great
promise of Vietnam today. Let us provide you with a guided program
that will take you to sites of special interest, including the
former U.S. Embassy, Reunification Hall, the bustling district of
Cholon (Chinatown) and a plethora of museums and pagodas. Saigon
also offers a variety of excellent restaurants, cafés, rooftop bars
and nightlife venues.
