Ho Chi Minh City
Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City was formerly known as Saigon. It is one of Vietnam's liveliest cities and a hub for commerce and culture. This place has all kinds of classically elegant French buildings that were left behind from the colonial period. You will feel almost as if you are in Paris. Apart from the sightseeing tours of places like the Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica of Saigon, the Ho Chi Minh City City Hall and the Municipal Theatre, you can witness more grand French-style architecture off the beaten path by visiting the Central Post Office and mail a post card. At the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum you can learn about Vietnam's more recent history, take a boat trip along the Mekong River, or enjoy a cup of Vietnamese coffee in an old French-style café. Phạm Ngũ Lão Street is very quiet and peaceful during daylight hours. Once night falls, however, this place comes alive. Not only an excellent place to enjoy the city's nightlife, it is also a favorite place for backpackers to stay.

Things To Do in Ho Chi Minh City

Central Post Office

Irina Old post office building. A place where it is pleasant to be at any time. You are easily transported in time. An example of colonial architecture from the French colony. Phone cabins reminded me my childhood, when my mother and I used them to call our relatives from a Post office. There are also souvenir shops in the building, which are a bit cramped. The Post Office works as intended: you can buy and send postcards.

_GG***06it is located in the central of the city. Its free entrance. Unluckily, it was closed when we arrived there but we still capture a nice view from its outside.
War Remnants Museum
4.3/5

E56***84I could say that it’s an incredible exhibition but it’s more shocking becau If you’re in Ho Chi Minh city you can’t miss going to this museum. If you are sensitive to this kind of content, you should think twice before going as it shows all the content related to the Vietnam War. An exhibition that will make you realize the cathastrophic effect war and how it damage Vietnam most especially its people for 19.5 long years.
