"Saigon" Ho Chi Minh City by AndreSTGT

Ho Chi Minh City Travel Guide: 3,131 reviews and 7,263 photos

Despite its 6-8 million inhabitants Saigon does not look like a metropolis.
The streets are full of bicycles and scooters, but there are hardly any cars.
In some respect it is a typical South-East Asian city with the markets, the smells, the dirt.
But on the other hand, there is an untypical café culture, beautiful parks and a lot of colonial architecture, legacies of the French.

All this makes Saigon very pleasant and atmospheric, which makes up for its lack in real tourist sights.
A good way to explore the city is by rickshaw. Bargaining for a fair price for a sightseeing tour can be a pain in the ass, but it should not cost more than 1-1.50$ per hour.
