ADD TO LIST
Once a small sleepy fishing village, Ho Chi Minh City is now a bustling urban metropolis over 2,000 square kilometres in size.  It is situated along the Saigon river, and serves as Vietnam's major port.  Named after the country's nationalist leader, the town used to refered to as Saigon before the North Vietnamese Victory in 1975.  The downtown core is still referred to as Saigon.

Because of the rapid industrial growth, the city suffers from traffic congestion and chaos.  At the same time, it serves as the hub for many major attractions, and features some of the best hotels, restaurants and cafes in the country.

Travel Tips from people who've been to Ho Chi Minh City
untuk akomodasi& transportasi, dari Bandara Tan San Nhat, usahain cari taksi di area depan bandara. Untuk taksi cari yang pake argo. jangan aneh banyak yang nawarin tetek bengek, jangan percaya, banyak mafia kodok, just tell themto fuck themself! Untuk backpackers area, biasa ke daerah Pha Mu Lao. Untukharga hotel biasanya yang paling murah tapi udah bagus sekitar USD 10/malem termasuk tax. Klo ada rencana lama stay dsini, cari "room for rent" yang harganya sekitar USD 200/bulan. Ati2 ma copet, banyak copet disini!

Hanoi Gallery: Communist Propaganda      

If you’re looking for original Communist propaganda posters check out the Hanoi Gallery. They have shops in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and the collection varies from store to store. Although, we saw a piece we liked in Hanoi and passed it up but after looking at the collection in Saigon they offered to deliver the piece we liked from Hanoi down to the Saigon store. Replicas are also available at inexpensive prices, but if you’re looking for hand painted originals expect to spend a little dough. Their collection was far better than any other “propaganda seller” we saw.

What To Buy: Original Communist Propaganda posters as well as replicas.

What To Pay: Originals start at about $300 US on up.

Phone: 08.8218211

Address: 43 Le Loi, I District

u have to get a motor bike ad tempt fate especially around the western new year millions take to the streets like a swarm of bees neekig bikes there are millions on the street, japanesse buffets, night clubbing and going to the markets for such lovely things as peacock feathered fans and lotus flower tea.and go to local peoples houses for massage, get cup therapy, i got it once in a brothel a terrible shock when a girl climbed on my back with a rope of fire and then started sticking glasses on my back, very interesting bruisig the second oe was a family of girls and their old blind grandfather who lay on the ground surounded in war medals they where so sweet and also gave a lovely massage, its a nice way to meet local people ad give them a little money, another thing is the restererant o the street where the tour busses leave theres a resteraunt on the street behind and it has the most amazing fake meat food super super good. get some old guy to take u on the motorbike boat to go to the south side of siago which is completely different.
