Ho Chi Minh City Compared to Hanoi
Ho Chi Minh City is, however, a little less popular with foreign tourists than Vietnam’s other major city, Hanoi. This is partly because Hanoi is much closer to two of Vietnam’s top attractions, Ha Long Bay and Sapa, and partly because Hanoi is a much older city with more historic buildings. This said, both Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi have well developed tourists amenities, particularly in the Pham Ngu Lao area of Ho Chi Minh City and the Old Quarter of Hanoi, and both have excellent transport links, and are connected to each by around 5 direct daily train services in each direction.
District 1 in Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City covers a large area. over 2,000 square kilometres. However, the city’s main attractions are for the most part all within walking ditance of each other in District 1. The main places to visit nearly all date back to the period when Vietnam was a French colony. During that time the French colonialists commissioned the construction of some grand buildings in the city, most notable of which are Saigon City Hall, Ben Thanh Market, Saigon Central Post Office and Saigon Opera House.
Also in District 1 near to the Reunification Palace, which the French didn’t build, is To Dan Park. Tao Dan Park is the largest park in Ho Chi Minh City and contains lots of interesting things to see. Local people make very good use of the park, particularly older men who famously gather at cafes in park to compare their collections of caged songbirds.
