Guide to Saigon
Guide to Saigon & Hotels
Vietnam’s largest city, Saigon (also called Ho Chi Minh City), is fast catching up with Asia’s other cities in terms of development, yet it still retails a French colonial flavour and a timeless quality. Alongside its colonial buildings and bustling street markets you’ll find sleek new bars, pavement cafés and some of the most delicious food in Asia with a good choice of restaurants.
Travel
Saigon is served by scheduled services from most Asian cities, with onwards connections from London. There are no direct flights from the UK. The airport is 4 miles north of the city, a 20-minute drive. We can arrange for you to be met on arrival and transferred privately to your hotel. From £8 per person.

Attractions

Visit the Reunification Palace; a symbol of the war and scene of the fall of Saigon in 1975. The French-style Central Post Office is interesting as it has changed very little over the decades. See the Notre Dame Cathedral, very much a landmark in Saigon. A cyclo ride through the streets at night is an experience, and a drink from a rooftop bar overlooking the Saigon River is recommended. Further afield consider a cruise in the Mekong and a visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels, used during the war by the Vietcong.

When to go

The driest period of the year for Saigon tends to be December through to March. The rainy season is usually May to October and tropical storms do occur. Saigon is hot and humid all year round with an average temperature of between 31°C and 35°C.
