Weekend Trip to Ho Chi Minh City
Flight time from Hong Kong: 2 hours and 30 minutes
Also known by its former name of Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City was once the capital of Southern Vietnam. The sprawling metropolis is made up of 24 districts and is home to sites such as the French-built Notre Dame Cathedral and the War Remnants Museum (up until recently, known as the “Exhibition House for US and Puppet Crimes”). There’s loads to see and HCMC can be a bit intimidating even to the seasoned traveler—but with the right guides, you can make the most of the amazing culture and cuisine hidden around the city.
