Exploring Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Hanoi and Ho chi minh (Saigon) are the main cities in Vietnam, they are also on the tourist list while visiting this country. Hanoi is the capital city located in the north and Saigon is the central business district area located in the south, it takes 2 hours flight between the cities. As one of the tourist destination and one of major city, there are several unique things to explore. 


As a central business and busiest area of Vietnam as for local also tourist, Saigon provide good facilities, such as public transportation and pedestrian area. When in Saigon we can choose the public transportation, is quite ease to explore the city, because there is only one type (buses). 

Vietnam mostly relic of French colonialism. French influences are visible mostly on the buildings. This architecture style has formed the city shape. It also united with the public park, pedestrian, or even a plaza for sculpture. 

Saigon is also a city with river view, most area or building which next to the river will make it as a potential view, such as Ho chi Minh museum with Saigon River View.

As a capital city, Hanoi is quite different compared to Saigon. Unfortunately the facilities in this city is not as good as its sister city, but in some place they still have a good promenade for people walk or just pass by. Although Hanoi's weather is quite warm, they provides blooming vegetation on the promenade and make the area more comfortable, like in Hoan Kiem Lake.
