After falling to the Viet Cong in 1975, Saigon was renamed Ho Chi Minh City the following year. With a population of 9 million it is the biggest city in Vietnam, and is the economic powerhouse of the country. The capital may be Hanoi, but here is where it's at.
We are next to a nice green area, with a massive playground in the middle. Spent most of the afternoon there. We have 4 full days in HCMC, there is loads to do here.
