(TITC) - Recently, American magazine Fodor’s Travel has announced its Fodor’s Go List 2023 and Ho Chi Minh City is listed in the Top places to go in Asia in 2023.
A whole new world post Covid-19 pandemic is awaiting travel lovers to return to its roots. For better or for worse, it is great to be back as normal and since restrictions and Covid protocols are easing, and countries that have maintained lockdowns are reopening, travellers can explore every corner of the world again. Travelling post the pandemic might feel a bit weird and bring out new taste, yet wonderful.
Make up your mind, pack the backpack, leave all rustle and bustle life behind to have a reflecting trip to Ho Chi Minh City, a metropolis city of Vietnam, which would surely be worth your valuable dollars and time.
Ho Chi Minh City, the place where history meets modern cosmopolitanism, is the largest commercial hub of Vietnam, and is more lively than ever. Coming to the City, exploring its 24 districts with plenty to see and eat. From District 1 to District 4, Ho Chi Minh City offers rich and turbulent history from French colonisation, the Notre Dame Cathedral of Saigon, a neo-Romanesque and Gothic cathedral built by French colonists in the late 1800s; Cu Chi Tunnels, underground tunnels used by guerrilla troops; and the War Remnants Museum, an often-disturbing look at the atrocities of the decade-long war.
