Ho Chi Minh City is easily visited on foot. Most major tourist attractions are in District 1, which is fairly compact.


Saigon was first the capital of Cochinchina and later of South Vietnam.

Following the fall of Saigon in 1975, the city area was extended and Saigon was renamed Ho Chi Minh City to honor North Vietnam's revulotionary leader Hồ Chí Minh.

Even though Ho Chi Minh City is correct, the two names are still used interchangeably.

Saigon is sometimes also used for the downtown area of District 1 and 3 rather than the entire city.

Notre Dame Catheral is one of the most famous places that people usually visit when they come to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). Visit this place to enjoy the ancient French architecture.
