03 Days - Saigon Stopover

Saigon, officially renamed Ho Chi Minh City in 1976, is the largest city in Vietnam. Still commonly referred to as Saigon, however, it is a city moving forward in leaps and bounds. The French influence is readily seen in the old colonial buildings, such as the Opera House and City Hall, which serve as a contrast to the luxury hotels, shopping malls, restaurants and modern office buildings that are rapidly growing in number. There are many ubiquitous scenes that play out everyday, such as the throngs of motorbikes zipping about the city, and the hustle and bustle of the busy marketplaces selling goods of all kinds. Outside on the streets, young professionals chat on their cellphones, while inside the quiet temple courtyards worshippers pray amdist clouds of incense. Saigon is also a gourmet's delight, with a wide range of restaurants serving delicious Vietnamese and international cuisines, the French influence still being seen in various dishes as well as in the hot, fresh baguettes expertly prepared at the bakeries.
