Ho Chi Minh


Dizzying, dazzling and with an energy you’ll struggle to find elsewhere, Ho Chi Minh is an intoxicating mix of commerce, culture and confidence. Behind every street corner, there’s a new surprise. Hip boutiques and street vendors jostle for business on the banks of the Saigon River, incense smoke weaves around ancient temples while tourists rub shoulders with hurried office workers and futuristic skyscrapers stand like metallic shards overlooking the whole city.

Alongside the chaos and zest of HCMC, lies a more thoughtful, spiritual city that refuses to forget the years of tumult of the last century and its faith in the strength of its people. Ho Chi Minh City is loud, proud and warmly embraces new visitors from near and far – and a visit here is a life changing experience.

Ho Chi Minh City Highlights


For a city with so much history, there’s no end to the sights and attractions. While there is lots to see outside the city, make sure you spend time exploring as much of Ho Chi Minh City as you can.

Despite its independence in 1949, the city still bears the hallmarks of French colonisation with elegant boulevards, courts, palaces, theatre and even a Notre-Dame Cathedral. You will also not be able to miss the statuesque Bitexco Financial Tower, Landmark 81 and Vietcombank Tower – which give the city a glimpse into the future.

Though not strictly in Ho Chi Minh City, most tours start off in the centre and take the traveller to My Tho, the former naval base which is the setting off point for a long boat cruise of the Mekong Delta. A journey like no other, you’ll be taken to bee farms, a coconut candy factory, sample tropical fruit and have countless opportunities to pick up beautiful handmade souvenirs.

A holiday in Ho Chi Minh isn’t complete without exploring the network of tunnels which are located beneath the city in the Cu Chi district. A relic to the Vietnam War, these were built for Viet Cong soldiers to hide during combat. Trap doors were found on the floors of jungles and hidden in various parts of the city. Visitors to the tunnels can explore the wider parts of the network and enjoy a meal that Viet Cong fighters would have eaten.

Ho Chi Minh City Weather


Ho Chi Minh benefits from year round sunshine, with very little fluctuation in temperature. April for instance, is the warmest month of the year with averages of 30°C, while December is the coolest at 27°C.

July is usually the rainiest time of year, with around 190mm of rain expected in this month alone.

The best time to visit Ho Chi Minh City is widely regarded as December for the slight drop in temperature and February, in time for the Tet celebrations. The majority of Ho Chi Minh packages are booked for this part of the year.
