Lively and colourful, Ho Chi Minh City captures almost everything travellers love about Vietnam, from buzzing markets to picturesque temples that punctuate the landscape. Sprawling along the banks of the Saigon River, HCMC, as it's often known, has emerged as a vibrant challenger to some of Asia’s powerhouse cities.
On one hand Ho Chi Minh City is fast and flash, with skyscrapers and luxury hotels, designer boutiques and fine dining. On the other, it’s a city preserved in a distant age of rickshaws, colonial buildings and peaceful temples, where street food vendors fill the air with intoxicating aromas of coriander and lemon grass.
Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City combine quality with reasonable rates, making it a vibrant destination that’s both fascinating and affordable.
The city is divided into numbered neighbourhoods, with District 1 at the centre of the action. Here you’ll find charming French colonial buildings and cultural attractions sharing elbow room with backpackers’ hostels and some of Ho Chi Minh City's luxury hotels.
If you’re watching your budget, there’s cheap accommodation in Pham Ngu Lao. Around 25 minutes by taxi from Tan Sot Nhat International Airport, it’s where backpackers congregate in budget hostels and one-star boltholes.
Alternatively, upgrade to a nearby historic hotel in Dong Khoi Street, home to some of the city’s plushest hotels. District 2 is home to expat communities, modern shopping malls and commerce. What it lacks in heritage, it makes up for with quality hotels and good transport links into the city’s cultural heart.
A good option if you want to balance affordability with comfort and convenience is a three-star hotel in District 3. Alongside District 1, it has a refreshingly peaceful vibe thanks to the strong Buddhist community. District 5 boasts some impressive four-star hotels in Ho Chi Minh City – the Windsor Plaza Hotel has a spa, rooftop outdoor pool and a glittering marble foyer. Chinatown (Cholon) and Binh Tay Market are on the doorstep.
For city life that’s barely changed in centuries, take a trip around the local markets in the tourist hubs of Districts 1 and 5. Ben Thanh market in District 1 and Binh Tay in Chinatown attract stallholders selling everything from fresh fruit to handicrafts in a street theatre atmosphere. Arrive with an empty stomach and enjoy pho noodles, bao buns and crispy spring rolls as you go.
District 1 is home to most of Saigon’s historic treasures. The Reunification Palace and Notre Dame Cathedral are found on Nguyen Du Street, the War Remnants Museum and the Museum of Ho Chi Minh City are nearby. Take in a performance of traditional Vietnamese dance at 19th-century Saigon Opera House, a charming colonial building in District 1.
Pencil in a half-day to head north to the Chu Chi Tunnels, a sombre but fascinating reminder of the atrocities of war, around 30 miles (50km) northwest of the city.
When the light fades, head for the bars and restaurants in bustling Pham Ngu Lao Street – known as the backpacker district, it's popular with both tourists and locals on a night out.
Even budget accommodation in Ho Chi Minh City can be surprisingly comfortable and well-equipped. You could bed down in a two-star hotel in Ho Chi Minh City's District 1 for a bargain and get WiFi and breakfast included.
Treat yourself with a five-star such as the Grand Hotel Saigon in District 1, where you can expect to pay significantly less than you would for equivalent facilities in a European hotel. In return you’re treated to four restaurants, an outdoor pool, health club, and complimentary bathrobe and slippers.
Larger hotels will usually accept your cards (as will shops) but you may be charged a 3% levy. You can save yourself the hassle by paying in advance when you book online – just select your dates, hotel and room and pay at checkout. Smaller hotels will usually prefer cash if you choose to pay later. The local currency is the dong, although US dollars are widely accepted in Vietnam’s cities, including Ho Chi Minh City.
