What to do in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam (HCMC) ? Many travellers only give HCMC 2 or 3 nights but we would encourage you to plan to spend more time there. We recommend that you visit HCMC if:

HCMC surprised us as a city. After travelling from North to South comments from other travellers advised us that HCMC and Hanoi are two different cities. Totally different vibes, things to see and do and the people are different as well. They were so right. Do we have a favourite?
