Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam Overview

Ho Chi Minh City is the economic center of Vietnam. Until the reunification of North and South Vietnam in April 1975 the city's name was Saigon. The Communist government of Hanoi renamed it in honour of Ho Chi Minh, the leader of the Communist forces during the Vietnam War. But the inhabitants of the city have never quite gotten accustomed to the new name and thus still prefer the old name,Saigon.

This was the city I was most excited about visiting and unfortunately was the most disappointing. We went on a Colonial Excursion and our tour guide was not good, as he was very disinterested in talking about the city and walked way too fast and could have lost some of the guests if we did not look out for each other. We took another excursion to the Mekong Delta and that was outstanding. Our tour guides were Minh and Kim and they were incredible. Tip - with Azamara being a smaller ship, it is able to dock right at the main pier in Ho Chi Minh City, whereas the larger ships cannot navigate the river to get to the city. Just a helpful tip for those thinking they might get to the city on a larger ocean liner.

An interesting place but felt unsafe in the markets. Motorbikes coming so close but glad to have seen it Would much prefer visit to the countryside rather than the hustle & bustle of this city
