A First-Timers Travel Guide to Saigon
Saigon, or Ho Chi Minh City as it’s also known, is the hub of southern Vietnam and is often the first places visitors experience in Vietnam. The sprawling metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City can be overwhelming to first-timers; the city has an energy that can appear chaotic but scratch below the surface and you’ll see the charm of Saigon, from the grandeur of the tourist sites to the back alley boutiques, pagodas and endless street food to feast upon. It can be overwhelming to visit a city so energetic but this travel guide to Saigon is here to help you plan your own trip.
I’ve lived in Saigon for over 5 years now, and love the city dearly. While I have many blogs and guides to both travels and life in Saigon, this guide is reserved for first-timers to the city. I really hope this helps you plan an epic trip to Saigon and you come away loving the city as much as I do.
