About Ho Chi Minh City
Holidays to Ho Chi Minh City offer interesting and arresting museums, fine restaurants, excellent hotels, busy markets and glitzy bars. Everywhere you look there is colour and movement. Flocks of schoolgirls on bicycles, their traditional white "Ao Dai" tunics fluttering in the breeze; vendors engulfed in bright bubbles of balloons or pushing carts heaped with wares. The French influence is still apparent in Ho Chi Minh City - from the board tree-lined boulevards to the imposing villas and colonial architecture. Do not miss the opportunity to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels, built by the Viet Cong to escape US forces during the Vietnam War.
