BEYOND THE NEIGHBOURHOOD
BEN THANH MARKET
Ben Thanh Night Market cannot be missed when in Ho Chi Minh City. Literally, everything under the sun can be found here. There are over 1,000 stalls on site. Highlights of this night market include the accessible location, diversity and variety of merchandise available.
NOTRE-DAME CATHEDRAL BASILICA OF SAIGON
The most famous religious landmark in the city, the Notre Dame Cathedral was constructed by French colonists between 1863 and 1880. A smaller version of the Notre-Dame de Paris in France, it is one of the tallest buildings in the city and the oldest Catholic churches in Vietnam.
TRAN KHAC CHAN STREET IN DISTRICT
One of the best areas to grab a cheap, cheerful and delicious meal. The street is like an open market, with each little stall doing only one or two dishes. Wander along and let your nose (and stomach) guide you.
For finer fare, book a table at Vietnam House, by acclaimed chef Luke Nguyen. Nguyen's contemporary takes on classic Vietnamese dishes elevate some of the country's most loved dishes to new heights. The Indochine-inspired interiors complete what is a thoroughly enjoyable meal.
