Port Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam) cruise port

Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam. Once known as Prey Nokor, it was an important Khmer seaport prior to the 17th century annexation by the Vietnamese. Under the name Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City served as the capital of the French Cochinchina colony and later of the independent South Vietnam republic (1955–1975). On July 2, 1976 Saigon merged with the surrounding Gia Dinh Province and was renamed after revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh.

The metropolitan area, consisting of Ho Chi Minh City metropolitan area and surrounding towns, is populated by over 10 million people, making Ho Chi Minh Vietnam's most populous metropolitan area. The population of Ho Chi Minh City is expected to grow to 13.9M by 2025. Ho Chi Minh City area is 2,096.5 km2 (809.23 ml2).

The majority of the tourist spots are situated in District 1 of Ho Chi Minh City and are a short distance from each other. The most prominent buildings in the city centre are the City Hall, Reunification Palace, Municipal Theatre (Opera House), State Bank Office, City Post Office, City People's Court and Notre-Dame Cathedral. Some of the city's historic hotels include Hotel Majestic, which dates back from the French colonial era, and Rex & Caravelle hotels - former hangouts for war correspondents and American officers in the 1960s-1970s.

In 2007 approximately 4.3M tourists visited Vietnam, of which 70% (3M) visited Ho Chi Minh City. The city boasts various museums like Ho Chi Minh City Museum, the Revolutionary Museum, Museum of Vietnamese History, Museum of south-eastern Armed Forces, War Remnants Museum, Museum of Fine Art, Museum of Southern Women, Nha Rong Memorial House, and Ben Duoc Relic of Underground Tunnels. The Cu Chi tunnels are situated north-west of the city in Cu Chi District. The Saigon Zoo and Botanical Gardens dates back from 1865. The Dam Sen Tourist and Cultural Park, Suoi Tien Amusement and Culture Park, and Can Gio's Eco beach resort are recreational sites inside the city that are quite popular with tourists.

Don't take the fast ferry (hydrofoil) to Saigon because it is old and unreliable. The Vietnam tour guides require passport details in advance in order to arrange port passes. The permit to pick travelers up at the port is compulsory to the company in case tourists want to be legal and safe. Expect to pay $25-30 per person for port fees, even though "unofficial" fees may be less.


Highlights: Reunification Palace, Cu Chi Tunnels, Temples of Bagan
