Vinh Nghiem Pagoda, the largest in HCMC, and Xa Loi Pagoda are ...

  • 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.

  • 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.
