Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon, is a vast city of seven million running on strong coffee and “easy riders” – there’s not much you can’t transport on the back of a motorbike in Vietnam. Life seems so fast-moving here, that initially you might be left dazed and confused with the rush of it all.

But once you’ve acclimatised, you’ll be hooked on HCMC (as it’s popularly known) – from the alleyway bowls of chicken pho and street corner bia hoi (draft beer), to the splendour of the French colonial architecture, and the incredible shopping in malls, markets and everywhere in between. And when you’re ready for a rest, don’t fret – you can have that for free in one of the city’s pretty parks.

Where to eat in Ho Chi Minh City - Monsoon Restaurant & Bar

Monsoon Restaurant & Bar

Serving cuisine from Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Myanmar, this is a great place to visit if you’re new to the food of the region. “Inspired by great friends and kind strangers”, the restaurant is an expansion of the first one which was set up in Myanmar. The Southeast Asian staples found on the menu here are set off by fantastic presentation, hip interior decor and some hard-to-turn-down cocktails. The lemongrass martini is a must.

Insider Tip: Order an appetiser from each country for a well-rounded tasting session.
