Spring is the best time to travel to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Therefore, Smile Travel Vietnam, one of the leading travel companies in Vietnam, is launching a special promotion program on tours in Ho Chi Minh City. This also aims to introduce the image of the biggest city of Vietnam as well as attract more and more international tourists. Accordingly, the discount can be up to 50% when tourists book tour in the time of promotion.
Ho Chi Minh City, commonly known as Saigon, is the largest city in Vietnam and the former capital of the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam). After 1975, Saigon was renamed Ho Chi Minh City. However, the old Saigon name is still used by both Vietnamese and foreigners, especially when referring to the most central part of the city to which most tourists flock.
Setting the cultural and economic peace for the country, Ho Chi Minh City is the home to shopping malls, trade centers, entertainment places, and eco-tourism destinations. Then, it has been considered as the paradise of tourists. Not only does it own the modern beauty but it also is the symbol of tradition, culture and history. In particular, tourists will have opportunities to discover the mysterious and majestic enchantment of such historical sites as Cu Chi Tunnel, the system of museums, pagodas, temples, and architectural buildings combining between Vietnamese, Chinese, and Western styles. During more than 300 historical years, Ho Chi Minh City keeps flourishing to be the leading cultural treasure of Vietnam. There are various highlights in the city. Regarding to historical sites, tourists can visit Reunification Palace, War Remnants Museum, City Hall, Ho Chi Minh Museum, Museum of Vietnamese History, etc. As for religious sites, tourists can call in Central Mosque, Notre Dame Cathedral, Thien Hau Pagoda, Quan Am Pagoda, and so on. Besides, Bitexco Financial Tower is also a popular place for tourists once visiting Ho Chi Minh City.
Tourists may be spoiled for choice in Saigon, which offers the country's largest variety of Vietnamese and international food. Bargains are getting harder to find, however, and restaurant prices have been rising at up to 30% per year due to a combination of higher food prices, rising wages, and soaring real estate costs. The local food shows influences from French colonial times - bakeries have fresh and excellent baguettes, which they will fill with cheese (typically of the "la vache qui rit" or "laughing cow" brand), potted meat, ham, and onions, or any combination thereof, cheaply.
Apart from attractive beauty spots and special cuisine, Ho Chi Minh City is also well-known for generous people and various culture. Just coming to the city, tourists can see its whole beauty and enchantment. Tours in Ho Chi Minh City are offered with good prices and high quality services. For example, tourists can have a great 3-day vacation on Mekong River Cruise just with $345 - $520. Besides, tourists can get access to the website of Smile Travel Vietnam to get more information on many other tour packages. The time for promotion tours is limited, therefore, tourists should book soon to get biggest offers.
