VIETNAM [ HO CHI MINH TRAVEL GUIDE - PART 1]




Hello! Welcome back again to my other Traveling story! NOW, let's we move to another country and fly to Vietnam ✈️ At my latest post about Vietnam, I wrote about my traveling story in  Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, and also about the one of UNESCO HERITAGE, Halong Bay. NOW, let's talk about Ho Chi Minh, the largest city in Vietnam. Here we go, the ultimate TRAVEL GUIDE of Ho Chi Minh city! 

As the largest city in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh (old name Saigon) become a very live city! Vietnam truly beyond my expectations, especially Ho Chi Minh, sure it's modern city with French vibes. Not too hectic like Jakarta, also unlike the former of communist state in general. Good city with good ambiance.

So, What To Do In Ho Chi Minh? Here the list based on my experience!

  1. Visiting Saigon Notre Dome Cathedral 

     

The architecture me we feel like not in Vietnam


Built in 1880 by French Colonial with Romanesque Style, this Catholic Cathedral become the oldest building in Vietnam. The design made us feel like in Rome, good for taking a lot of picture. Currently Instagram Material 😍


OOTD in Ho Chi Minh? DONE

  1. Ho Chi Minh Central Post Office

     


Built between 1886-1891, this building designed by Gustave Eiffel, the man who also designed the famous Eiffel Tower. Yap, Ho Chi Minch Central post office is one of example of French Colonial architecture. Because this country is a former of French colony. The design was very beautiful and thick with historical, and made you the real traveler should not miss to visit this one. The location only next door from Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral. 



You also can buy souvenir in here

  1. Saigon Pedestrian Bookstreet

     


Located only opposite Notre Dome and beside the Saigon Post office, you should not miss to explore this area. Nguyen Van Binh Street is now home to over 20 small book shops run by Vietnamese publishing companies, including the Ho Chi Minh City General Publishing. You can find many old book, limited edition novel and as well as a number of smaller stalls, cafes, and coffee shop. Worth to visit.

Good for afternoon stroll

  1. Strolling around Dong Khoi Street in district 1 & stop at Saigon Opera House.


In Ho Chi Minh city (also in Hanoi) the goverment divided some area with "district". Ho Chi Minh has 19 district, where District 1 is the famous one. DISTRICT 1 also know  with "sleepless district" where you can find many bars,  cafes, restaurant, hotels, shoping area, mall and iconic landmark. It's really nice for afternoon strolls.

afternoon stroll kinda like... This city surely pedestrian friendly
I found many building with frech colonial architecture

In Dong Khoi Street, we cand find many high end designer galery and also shopping mall. Saigon Opera House also in same location. Saigon Opera House built in French Colonial, the exterior has the appearance of polished pearl and makes a great place to photograph. Instagram Meterial 😍
