In the 1960s and 1970s, this city was the backdrop during America’s fight with communist North Vietnam. Remnants of this past are visible in colonial-era architecture, war museums, and historic landmarks such as the Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica of Saigon and the War Remnants Museum.

Today, Ho Chi Minh City is one of the best places to visit in Vietnam. As you wander the bustling streets, you’ll notice street vendors selling local delicacies in the lively atmosphere of traditional markets.
