Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon to give it its former name, is Vietnam’s most populous city. Spend a few days here checking out the bars, sampling some street food and taking in the fascinating history by visiting the city’s museums before venturing deeper into the agricultural heart of southwestern Vietnam. Here you can experience the unique culture of the Mekong Delta on board a sampan boat, visiting one of the country’s few remaining Khmer communities, the floating markets of Can Tho and the kingdom of coconuts at Ben Tre.
