The city formerly known as Saigon is an energetic place, throbbing with commerce and rich with history and culture. There are hidden alleyways leading to mysterious temples, hawkers selling tongue-tingling street food, and bustling marketplaces where you can pick up everything: from knock-off designer jeans to meat for tonight’s dinner. Glitzy shopping malls, high end restaurants, trendy cocktail bars, and swanky opera houses add a dash of class, while the War Remnants Museum offers a stark reminder of the city’s recent history.
