Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) is Vietnam's largest city and its hub of finance and culture. This is where you'll find the country's finest museums, fascinating heritage sites, contemporary shopping and cafes on every corner.
In such a sprawling city – divided into 24 districts – it can be intimidating trying to pick a place to stay. Read Skyscanner's recommendations for the best Ho Chi Minh accommodation and compare cheap hotel deals to suit every price range.
The hub of the city, District 1 is the obvious place to stay if you want to be close to the attractions, especially if it’s your first time in the city. You can explore Vietnam's storied past at the War Remnants Museum, admire its diverse architecture at the Reunification Palace and Notre-Dame Cathedral, take in a show at the Saigon Opera House or take the kids to Saigon Zoo. There's no shortage of cheap hotels in Ho Chi Minh City's most popular district, especially around Dong Khoi Street.
Across the Saigon River, District 2 is a more affluent and peaceful alternative to the crowded District 1. Popular with expats and wealthy Vietnamese, you'll be further from the sights but have plenty of boutiques, cafes and cocktail bars to discover along tree-lined avenues, as well as restaurants geared to an international clientele and indulgent spas.
Commonly called Cholon ('Big Market'), District 5 is Ho Chi Minh City's Chinatown, home of the popular Binh Tay Market (which is the largest in Vietnam). Shop for handmade jewellery and souvenirs, take a culinary tour of Chinese and Vietnamese dishes and visit the local temples and pagodas for a different experience of Vietnam. The area really comes to live during celebrations such as Chinese New Year.
Motorbikes are everywhere in Ho Chi Minh City, and if you can't beat them, join them. Read Skyscanner's guide to touring HCMC by moped and more biking trips in Vietnam.
A popular day trip from the city – as long as you're not claustrophobic – crawling through the Cu Chi Tunnels gives an intimate experience of what it was like for Vietnam's guerrilla fighters during the American War.
If you want to see the natural beauty of South Vietnam during your visit, Ba Den Mountain (also called Black Virgin Mountain due to the local legend) is a short drive from the city. Hike to the top of the extinct volcano or take the cable car for remarkable views over the landscape.
