Situated on the banks of the Saigon River, Ho Chi Minh City - still fondly known as ""Saigon"" - is a wonderful mix of old and modern. The former Presidential Palace, ‘Reunification Hall' is up there when it comes to must see sites, which is now a museum and exhibition centre. Other museums include ‘Ho Chi Minh City Museum' and the ‘Museum of Vietnamese History'. ‘Lang Ca Ong Temple' makes for a fascinating visit too. Dedicated to a whale cult, the temple features a collection of whale skeletons. The city also boasts three fun-filled amusement parks: ‘Dam Sen, Suoi Tien' and ‘Dai Nam'.
Head to ‘Ben Thanh Market' and discover an array of Vietnamese crafts. It's the perfect place to pick up a souvenir or gift. Popular purchases include amber, ceramics, antiques, jewellery, silk, rosewood boxes and bowls.
Ho Chi Minh City's local currency is the dong (VND). Ho Chi Minh City is 6 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+ 6).
