Formerly known as Saigon and the capital city of South Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City is the country’s largest city with many things to offer—including tourism. After the fall of Saigon back in 1975, the city’s name was changed to Ho Chi Minh City. Nevertheless, many people—including foreigners—still use the old name “Saigon” when mentioning the main parts of the city visited by the majority of tourists.
