Travel Tips for visiting Saigon

Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon was once the historical capital of Vietnam but has now the title of economic capital. Defeating Hanoi by its economic dynamism, the old Saigon is famous for its frenetic traffic of motorcycles, scooters, bicycles, buses, cars... It is the most dynamic city of the country, however the best is not to linger too long. Visit the museums about the terrible Vietnam War, and then take time to travel around the area, discovering the Cu Chi tunnels for example, or the Caodaïst temples, and of course the Mekong delta. Capital of Cochinchina until the defeat of Dien Bien Phu, Saigon has beautiful colonial buildings in a very French style such as the central post office, the cathedral, the governor's palace, not to be missed during a trip to Vietnam. The other great attraction of the city is its Chinese district, "Cholon", famous in the colonial era for its opium dens, its smoky gambling dens and its brothels. Today, many Chinese pagodas can still be seen there. Finally, start to go up the coast to the north to find the different Vietnamese cities and their secrets, and thus, complete your trip to Vietnam, or go to discover Cambodia, very close. Go on an adventure to the Asian continent!
