The city during the night time traffic. Although the traffic is crazy I didnt see any aggressive drivers. People somehow managed to get dis-entangled and go along their way without bothering themselves or others that much.
We stayed close to the backpacker alley. Here you can find any kind of food and drink, quite affordably.
One of the most popular tourist destination is the war museum. It gives a decent insight into the Vietnam war – ofcourse from the Vietnamese perspective. However BIG ALERT – it is quite depressing. Some of the photos can take your breath away, literally and you loose hope in humanity rather quickly.
Some war relics lying within the premises.
Reunification palace. A large building that was formerly South Vietnam’s presidential palace.
The Notre dame cathedral. A French-built Catholic cathedral in the city centre
Post office. Nice impressive building with beautiful ceilings.
The Opera house
The City hall
The promenade in front of the city hall, with an imposing statue of Ho Chi Minh.
Ben Thanh Market – a destination in itself. You can buy clothes, souvenirs, food and other household items here.
