I agree! I visited Ho Chi Minh City about a year ago and it was a blast. The food, the architecture, and the people are all amazing.

The only thing is, if you're going to be there for more than a couple of days, get ready for some serious humidity. It's hot as hell!

I remember one day in particular when I was walking around with my friend and we were dripping sweat faster than we could towel off and we were just walking around town! You should definitely bring along a waterproof umbrella or raincoat if you're planning on being outside for long periods of time.

Sounds like you really got the full Saigon experience! When you're in Ho Chi Minh City, be sure to check out the War Remnants Museum to learn more about the city's history. It's certainly an insightful and educational visit!

I feel like this is easily one of the best cities in Vietnam. 

Having been to Ho Chi Minh City twice, I can say that it is one of my most favorite places I have been to! I have gone to other areas as well as other countries.

I have only seen Landmark 81 from a distance! I wish I would have had more time to go see it up close. I am usually not a city girl but I did enjoy what little time I spent here on my last trip.

How big is Ho Chi Minh City? I have never been.

I don't mind cities but I prefer to visit smaller ones. They tend to have more of a sense of family and togetherness.

Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon, is a captivating destination filled with must-see attractions. From the breathtaking Central Post Office to the storied Reunification Palace and lively Ben Thanh Market, there's something for everyone. Personally, I highly recommend exploring the city's culinary scene, where you can indulge in delectable Vietnamese dishes and experience the authentic flavors of this bustling metropolis.
