Explore Ho Chi Minh with Elegant Resorts
Ho Chi Minh City (otherwise known as Saigon) is a city for the senses, attracting visitors with an intoxicating concoction of sights, sounds and smells. From the throngs of motorbikes and workers, to the street vendors selling Vietnamese delicacies, Saigon's urban metropolis is bustling with noise, traffic and energy. Etched with memories of the Vietnam War, travellers can divide their time between the frantic markets, inner-city pagodas and city museums and history buffs can visit the War Remnants Museum, full of military aircraft and a series of photographic exhibitions, some of which can be harrowing, but nevertheless, informative. Combine your excursions with fabulous culinary experiences and cookery classes available at the hotel. Still influenced by the effects of French-Colonialism, fresh baguettes from sweet-smelling bakeries can easily be found, or visit Ben Thanh market for stall-upon-stall of meats, seafood, pulses, spices and grains.
