Saigon

Back Up Next

Here are pictures from our vacation in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from 28 March to 2 April. Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam and is located near the Mekong River delta. In 1975, Saigon was merged with the surrounding province and renamed Ho Chi Minh City (although Saigon is still frequently used). The metropolitan area of Ho Chi Minh city and surrounding towns has more than 9 million people, making it the largest metropolitan area in Vietnam and Indochina.
