What to do in Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam and one of the country’s top destinations. It's known for historical sites, museums, cuisine, traditions, markets, and more. From calming temples and churches to glamorous hotels and clubs, HCM has something for everybody.
Catch a glimpse of the city’s history and go to Museum of Ho Chi Minh City. Do you fancy French architecture? Bring your camera and see the serene Notre Dame Cathedral, the Gustave Eifeel-designed Central Post Office, and the stunning Municipal Theatre opera house.
Strike a pose with the sculptures of the Thien Hau Pagoda. To add the most beautiful background to your photos, and for some incredible memories, make your way to the observation deck of Bitexco Financial Tower. No matter what time of day or night you visit, the view will always take your breath away. At night, make your trip worthwhile and go to Phu My Hung and the Starlight Bridge, and be dazzled by the water lit up with rainbow lights.
Wander around the stalls of the Binh Tay Market, where you can spend your Vietnamese Dong on almost anything, including delicious food. For an even stronger taste of Ho Chi Minh City’s culture, visit their best events like the Tet Festival (Lunar New Year) and February’s Ba Thien Hau Pagoda Festival. If you’ve seen the Disney movie Tangled, you’ll love the lanterns of the magical Tet Nguyen Tieu festival (First Full Moon of the New Year).
