Ho Chi Minh, on its own, may pale as a travel destination in comparison to other cities in Southeast Asia, but it is a necessary transport hub if you plan to explore Southern Vietnam.
In case you find yourself in Ho Chi Minh, the city center offers interesting cultural and urban experiences in addition to worthwhile day trips to the Mekong Delta.
Ho Chi Minh’s International Airport is the busiest airport in Vietnam. It is located 45 minutes away from the city center.
