Exciting Saigon

Todays' What to See in Saigon/HCMC

HCMC's War Remnants Museum is not for the faint-hearted as it houses provocative displays of weapons and photographs. Established in 1975, the War Remnants Museum focuses on remnants including U.S. armoured vehicles, a fighter jet, a tank, bombs, infantry weapons and the last guillotine used in Vietnam. Located in Saigon's District 3, the War Remnants Museum makes for an enlightening if somewhat uncomfortable experience. For more background on recent Vietnamese History, view our Vietnam History ...

Premier point of interest in Ho Chi Minh City

  • Dong Khoi street

    Formerly known as Rue Catinat during the French colonial days and Tu Do in the 1960s, this street was reborn during Doi Moi as the centre of Saigon’s commercial and shopping district. Local boutiques compete with international brands, and restaurants litter the street set in beautifully restored French colonial buildings.

  • District 2 & 7

    District 2, also known as An Phu and Thao Dien, is about a 20 minute drive northeast of Saigon's centre.

  • District 10 & 11

    Saigon's Districts 10 and 11 are little visited by tourists, but they are gaining popularity with working foreigners as a place to live due to the areas' proximity to HCMC's centre.

  • District 1

    District 1 is the financial and commercial hub of Ho Chi Minh City. Most travellers will spend the majority of their time here. Home to most of the major sights and an expanding number of bars and restaurants, District 1 was designed by French architects during the colonial era, which explains the wide, tree-lined boulevards and frequent parklands. On a ...

  • District 3

    Bordering District 1 in the centre of Saigon, District 3 is quieter, more local and a touch more scenic than its disorderly neighbour. The tree-lined avenues snake around a smattering of foreign embassies, French colonial buildings and up and coming dining venues competing with District 1's historical advantage. Vinh Nghiem Pagoda, the largest in HCMC, and Xa Loi Pagoda are ...

  • District 9 & Binh ...

    Venturing into Saigon's District 9 and Binh Thanh district allows you to catch a glimpse of daily Vietnamese life. It's a great place to soak up the atmosphere and browse through markets, cafes, tailors and houses that double as shops. It's less hectic and more affordable than HCMC's centre. Check out Thanh Da Island in Binh Thanh and Martyrs' Cemetery ...

    Saigon's version of Bangkok backpacker haunt Khaosan Road, Pham Ngu Lao Street in Saigon is a convenient place to find cheap accommodation, food and nightlife. With a plethore of bars and restaurants, Pham Ngu Lao Street is popular with tourists and locals alike looking for a cheap night out.

  • District 5

    More popularly known as Cho Lon, this is Ho Chi Minh City's Chinatown. Unfortunately, it is decidedly less Chinese than it used to be due to the anti-Chinese campaign in the late 70's when many fled the country. Saigon's District 5 is home to the largest market in Vietnam, a deluxe shopping mall and charming Chinese pagodas such as Nghia ...
