Ho Chi Minh City (population 8,426,100) began as a small fishing village and has since transformed into the most populous city in all of Vietnam.

Ho Chi Minh City boasts everything from fine dining to street food, upscale hotels to inexpensive guesthouses and hostels, and premium shopping centers to the cheapest of markets. Ornate pagodas and temples can often be seen right around the corner from large, modern skyscrapers. The streets are bustling, the people are friendly, and the coffee is strong.
