Best of South Vietnam
Vietnam's Southern Coastline that seems like endless beaches is one of the main factors that lure people to South Vietnam. Besides gorgeous beaches, the south offers exciting nightlife and buzz. This trip is highly focused on vibrant Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon. It is located at the heart of the southern part of Vietnam, between the northern edge of the Mekong Delta and the South-East region of volcanic red soil. Being a transformation between the two terrains, Ho Chi Minh City is intertwined with natural forest, vast plains, long coast and hundreds of rivers and canals. The Saigon River winds around the city and connect it with the East Sea. It is nicknamed "Pearl of the Far East."
Nowadays, Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam, a major hub for commercial, tourist and cultural activities. It's the mesmerizing gateway to Vietnam where traditional and modern influences live side by side. High-rises loom over shabby French colonial villas; conical-hatted street vendors plod past karaoke bars and glitzy shops.
