Better than Hanoi, a western-like city in Viet Nam
Being the capital of South Viet Nam it was westernised. There are sky scrapers, an opera, theatres. Don't believe in all what is being presented in War Remnants Museum (aka American War Crimes Museum). Lot's of it are indeed true (like agent orange story) but many things presented are clearly lies. And even more are non-verifiable for me.
Insider Tip:Try Pho soup and lots of other Vietnamese food. Don't plan more than 2-3 days there unless you came for partying.
