In the core of the Mekong Delta, Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is the second most important city in Vietnam after Hanoi capital. It is not only a commercial center but also a scientific, technological, industrial and tourist center.
Once dearly called Diamond of the Far-east with the luxury level compared with Hongkong or Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City is now the most populated city in Vietnam. Modern office skyscrapers, amidst traditional style pagodas and food stalls along the streets, create a dynamic urban area with very special sense.
Ho Chi Minh City’s architecture and lifestyle is the reconciliation between modernity and tradition, with many dots of modernity yet without losing Vietnamese traits and as much historical as it is modern.
