ho chi minh vietnam

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is Vietnam's high-octane city of commerce and culture that has driven the whole country forward with its dynamism.

A chaotic whirl, the city breathes life and vitality into all who settle here – visitors cannot help but be hauled along for the ride.
From the finest of hotels to the cheapest of guesthouses, the classiest of restaurants to the tastiest of street stalls, the choicest of boutiques to the scrum of the markets, Saigon is a city of contrasts.

Wander through timeless alleys to incense-infused temples before catching up with the present in designer malls beneath sleek skyscrapers. The ghosts of the past live on in buildings that one generation ago witnessed a city in turmoil, but the real beauty of (erstwhile) Saigon’s urban collage is the the seamless blending of these two worlds into one thrilling, seething mass.

Frankly, Ho Chi Minh does not really fit the brief for The Healthy Holiday Company but, for many, it's a convenient stop over en route to one of our featured resorts.  So, when in Ho Chi Minh, we recommend staying at the Park Hyatt - it has a good central location, a lovely little spa and a finess studio.  Alternatively, if you would rather stay on the beach a couple of hours from the city, we recommend Alma Oasis Long Hai
