Ho Chi Minh City and Hoi An Multi Centre

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon is the largest city in Vietnam. With French colonial buildings, bustling markets, designer shops, incense-scented pagodas and stalls selling fragrant noodle soup, this city hosts traditional and modern elements. We recommend spending three nights here to allow enough time to see all the key attractions, just a short flight to Danang and a 30 minute road transfer will then take you to the enchanting ancient town of Hoi An, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The narrow streets are lined with colourful lanterns which light up at night and tailor shops offering made to measure suits and dresses at unbelievable prices.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Old Town is characterised with winding lanes and wonderful chinese-style architecture dating back to the 15th century. Hoi An has many tailor shops, great for made-to-measure clothing. In the evening, the town comes alive with hundreds of colourful lanterns lighting up the streets and the Thu Bon river.
