Vietnam’s largest city, Ho Chi Minh City, evokes a feeling of exotic lands and old world charms. The city is still referred to by its old name Saigon, and even physically you can see the blend of the old with the new; the city streets are lined with high-rise corporate offices amongst charming French colonial architecture, where you will find the dynamic population going about their business alongside the placid saffron-robed monks collecting alms. Although the city is bustling with international business activity, it has managed to retain its distinct Asian feel.
