Saigon is a city with more to offer than bars and restaurants like most cities, which makes it a great stop to begin or end your Vietnam journey with. The city has recovered well since the war, but still offers plenty to see if you’re there to learn more or experience some history of the country’s struggles during that time.
One of my favourite cities in the world, my first non-holiday travel and one I will keep repeating for the rest of my life. A city with endless beauty to marvel at and action at every corner, yet the most relaxing and homely city I’ve ever visited. Every building is a work of art, every street welcomes you with open arms and there’s never a sense of boredom when mindlessly strolling through the canal-constricted cobbled streets of Amsterdam.
