Ho Chi Minh City is known as the commercial center of Vietnam, a communist country that is rapidly transforming itself into a 21st-century powerhouse. Established in 1698, the city is still young, only more than 300 years old. Yet in that time it has been a Khmer seaport, a French regional capital (it was the French who constructed the city's tree-lined boulevards and parks), the capital of the wartime state of South Vietnam (1954-1976), and where the US army were headquartered. Each of these roles has left a legacy that gives Ho Chi Minh City (or Saigon, as the way locals still like calling) its unique flair and architectural mix. So, Ho Chi Minh City's architecture and lifestyle represent special Vietnamese traits with contemporary touch of American and French characteristics. Nowadays, the city is one of Vietnam's key cultural, trading and education centers.

Besides, Ho Chi Minh City has an international and energetic ambiance, and having actively welcomed the new capitalist principle, the business-minded spirit of the people is much in evidence. Despite of relatively modern, it has still managed to hold onto its Asian character, and classy restaurants, luxurious hotels and chic bars line the sidewalks crammed with noodle stands, markets and shoeshine boys. The buzzing of motorbikes and scooters merges with the cries of street vendors and the urgent business of stall owners, selling barbecued dog, writhing snakes and tropical fruits. The sight of a family of four balanced precariously on a scooter, a squealing pig strapped onto the back of a bicycle, bowed heads topped by pointed lampshade-style hats and orange-clothed monks are just some of the vibrant images the city has to offer.

After more than 300 years of taking shape and developing, Ho Chi Minh City presents many ancient architectural constructions, famous relics and well-known landscapes. The city is encompassed by fascinating historical sites to the North and by the liquid fingers of the river delta to its South. One of the city's most meaningful symbols is the Reunification Palace (Independence Palace), where the last days of the Vietnam War were played out. The Mekong region is an authentic Garden of Eden, stuffed full of bountiful fruit trees, decorated in pink bougainvillea and with fishing boats chug their way along the side of the brown river. Other places in the south, historical, cultural, religious ad pleasurable treasures abound: The Viet Cong tunnels at Cu Chi, the fantastical Cao Dai Temple at Tay Ninh and dazzling white, remote beaches at Phu Quoc Pearl Island.
