Before the notorious war of the century, the city of Saigon was rechristened with the new name of the famous Vietnamese leader. No wonder the city bears heavy cultural and historical heritage dating back the era of French Indo-China, the imperial regime of France. The French had renovated the city with architecture modelling based on many famous monoliths of Paris. They are maintained and restored with utmost care and appear to be central part of attraction for a city tour.

A walk in the balmy evening on the alleys of old city may surprise you with unexpected wonders. As much as the bygone French legacy holds on to their Far East counterpart the essential Vietnamese culture spurs with exotic appearance from everywhere.
