By Vietnamese standards Saigon, or ‘Ho Chi Minh City’ as it is officially known, is a modern city thriving on the fast paced lifestyle that comes with the commercial gains. Despite this, there are still many historical sites and locations to see and visit in and around Saigon, including the Mekong Delta to the south and the famous Cu Chi Tunnels to the west.

There are two separate seasons. The rainy season lasts from May to November. It usually rains in decline of day, quite hard but in short time otherwise sometime it continually for all day. The dry season is from December through April next year.
