Ho Chi Minh City Compared to Hanoi
Ho Chi Minh City is very different to Vietman’s other very large city, Hanoi. Ho Chi Minh City is a much more recent development than Hanoi, which has a history spanning several thousand years. The lasting French influence on Ho Chi Minh City is also much noticeable than it is on Hanoi. Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, was the main administrative centre of France’s Indo-China Empire and during the late 19th Century and early 20th Century the city was home to a large number of French citizens.
6 Main Tourist Attractions in Ho Chi Minh City
Although Ho Chi Minh City covers a very large area the 6 main tourist attractions are all located with District 1 of the city, and within easy walking distance of each other:
- Tao Dan Park: Tao Dan Park is Ho Chi Minh City’s main public space and covers an area of over 100,000 sqm. As well as grassed areas and trees, the park contains playgrounds, gyms, coffee houses and lots of interesting monuments and sculptures.
- Saigon Opera House: Completed at the very beginning of the 20th Century, this ornate grand European style building was never a commercial success, and insufficiently subsidised during the period of French colonial rule. However, ironically, the opera house has been fully restored since Vietnam’s reunification and worth going to view from the outside. You need to book tickets for a show in order to see the inside of the auditorium.
- Saigon Central Post Office: Saigon Central Post Office is a working post office which has been maintained in much the same condition as it was when it was opened in 1891. This relic of a bygone era offers visitors an insight into life in Saigon at the end of the 19th Century.
- Saigon City Hall: Originally built by the French colonial government, this beautiful building remains the main city goverment building, although it’s now known as the Ho Chi Minh People’s Committee. In front of Saigon City Hall is a statue of Ho Chi Minh and the city’s main pedestrianised public plaza, Nguyen Hue street.
- Ben Thanh Market: Located within an art deco style building completed in 1912, Ben Thanh Market is the city’s largest and oldest market. In addition to a wide range of souvenirs is an even wider range of local cuisine sold at small food stalls. The food is generally much better value for money than the other products sold at the market.
- The Reunification Palace: The Reunification Palace was main governmental centre of the short lived Government of South Vietnam. The tank which smashed through the gate to the palace in 1975, signifying the defeat of the regime in South Vietnam, is still on display in the grounds of the palace.
