Top 3 sights in Ho Chi Minh City
1. Bitexco Financial Tower
Ride the elevator up to the top floor and take the breath taking view in from the sky deck.
2. Củ Chi tunnels
Go underground to check out the former hiding spot of Vietnamese soldiers during WW I. It definitely makes for a unique sightseeing experience.
3. Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica of Saigon
The Vietnamese version of the Notre Dame is a must when visiting Saigon.

If you happen to be driving a car in Saigon, watch out for the yellow traffic lights. They surprisingly urge drivers to speed up.
The city has only been called Ho Chi Minh since the end of the Vietnam War.
