It is disputed that Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon, as it is still known by many, is Vietnam at its best - a pulsating city of commerce and culture that has driven the country forward with its vibrant energy. The city breathes life and vitality into the finest of hotels to the cheapest of guesthouses, the classiest of restaurants to the tastiest of street stalls.
Guests can stroll through timeless alleys to gold-tipped temples and pagodas before shopping for high-street labels in air-conditioned megamalls. Narrow shophouses that sit elbow-to-elbow with modern skyscrapers typify the urban landscape. For a break, pop in one of the city’s plentiful coffeehouses and order up a ca phe sua da, a notoriously potent and sweet Vietnamese dripped coffee.
For breakfast or lunch, stop at a street food vendor for a bowl of piping hot pho, a Vietnamese noodle soup, or bite into a French baguette stuffed with slices of ham, pâté, picked vegetables and chili - known to the locals as a banh mi.
