Ho Chi Minh Information
Ho Chi Minh City is now the most populated city in Vietnam. Modern office skyscrapers, amidst Chinese style pagodas and food stalls along the street, create a dynamic urban area in very special sense. It is not overly tidy like in Singapore, nor is urban slumps omnipresent like in India.
Hochiminh City’s architecture and lifestyle is the reconciliation between American and Chinese influence, with many dots of modernity yet without losing Vietnamese traits. Hochiminh City is as much historical as it is modern. Reunification Palace is definitely the place to visit, for its significance and archival of Vietnam War. Museums are abound and the admission fees are generally low: Hochiminh Museum, Revolutionary Museum, Vietnam History Museum, etc.
