Vietnam Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City

Tips from the community

Kiss goodbye to your lonely hammock and coconut husks – Ho Chi Minh City is up next! This colossal megacity is one of the largest in all of Southeast Asia. It was once known as Saigon and saw some hard-fought sieges during the Vietnam War. These days, it’s a hubbub of tofu-touting, crab-cracking street stalls and bazaars like Ben Thanh Market. Backpackers tend to coalesce around body-packed Bui Vien Street and bubbly Vietnam rooftop bars at night. It’s a whole strip of ramshackle bars where Asian babushkas refill your tumbler with uber-cheap beer whenever you’re finished. During daylight, be sure to hit the whizzing slides and space bombs of the Dam Sen Water Park; rides like the ‎Kamikaze are aptly named!

If Hanoi had a seriously crazy younger sibling, it would be Ho Chi Minh City. We’re talking traffic madness, insane nightlife, luxury offerings, rooftop bars with sweeping views, museums, markets, and so much more. This city has an electric vibe and actually might never sleep. For nightlife that will make you ask, “What have I gotten myself into?,” look no further than Bui Vien street.

    Philippines is an archipelago in Southeast Asia and so the best way to and from here is through air travel. Here are some destinations in our neighboring countries you can get for cheap. (Especially during seat sales of local airlines). Note: International travel in my part of the world is still restricted but I can still dream and plan for the future. With the vaccine roll out already in progress, I'm optimistic that the time for travel is already in sight. Always check with local travel guidelines. Travel safely and responsibly. Flight durations are from SkyScanner.
