Paris of the east

Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon as it was previously known, is a busy city whose streets are full of people and Vietnam’s ubiquitous heavy traffic. It’s also a city that has a European air due to the monuments built by the French after seizing the city in 1859, a fact which has earned the city the nickname of “Paris of the East.”

Spending a day exploring the historic and narrow streets amid the hustle and bustle of the city is an experience that no traveler in Vietnam should miss.

Very lively people

Coming to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC, formerly Saigon) for the first time, it seems incredible that its inhabitants suffered the cruelty of the Vientam War so recently. The people are very lively and they seem young and eager to move forward. They´re living in the present while looking to the past to face the future.

So much life

Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon, is the heart of Vietnam. The streets are full of life (even more so than Hanoi) and lined with shops, vendors, food stalls, markets, and, above all, people. People everywhere.

Cross the street

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon, is the largest city in Vietnam with more than 7 million people. The most striking when you arrive in this city is the number of scooters and motorcycles occupying the entire width of the streets and the sound of horns. As a pedestrian you have to have a certain technique to cross an avenue if you never cross. In fact it should darken without stopping, without looking and two wheels saves us, it is like that there. Despite of the noise, it is very small and quiet typical narrow streets lit at night by Chinese lanterns with a charm. These streets may even be closed with gates. Do not miss this last is the covered market, you can find anything! But the ideal is to come at noon to eat, we eat better than restaurant is a treat and not expensive at all!

Traversons la rue

Hô Chi Minh ville, ancien Saigon, est la plus grande ville du Vietnam avec plus de 7 millions d'habitants. Le plus marquant quand on arrive dans cette ville c'est le nombre de scooters et motos occupant toute la largeur des avenues et le bruit des klaxons.
En tant que piéton il faut avoir une certaine technique pour traverser une avenue sinon on ne traverse jamais. En fait il faut foncer sans s'arréter, sans regarder et les 2 roues nous évitent, c'est comme ça là bas.
Malgrès ce bruit, on trouve de petites rues typiques très étroites et calmes illuminées la nuit par des lanternes chinoises avec un charme fou. Ces rues peuvent même être fermées avec des grilles.
A ne pas manquer enfin c'est le marché couvert, on trouve de tout! Mais l'idéal c'est de venir à midi pour manger, on mange mieux qu'au resto c'est un régal et pour pas cher du tout!

Impact landing

We had just landed in Vietnam. We arrived at about eight in the evening, and despite more than 24 hours of travel we could not stay in the hostel. Ho Chi Minh is not only a chaotic and crowded city of merchants in every corner, it is also getting preserve the tranquility its inhabitants, who seem oblivious to the horn of the millions of motorbikes walking avenues. Ho Chi Minh are women selling everything from exotic fruits and vegetables to freshly grasshoppers or cockroaches walk the plank; elders like the photo in the middle of the Vietnamese madness, found peace sitting by a tree; drivers moto-taxis napping huddled on the bike that serves as bed, and of course, children who roam at any time by the frenzy of the second largest city in Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh, the end of the day, was the start of a tour of Southeast Asia that we diíicilmente forget.

Aterrizaje de impacto

Acabábamos de aterrizar en Vietnam. Llegamos a eso de las ocho de la tarde, y pese a las más de 24 horas de viaje no pudimos quedarnos en el hostal. Ho Chi Minh no es sólo una ciudad caótica y repleta de comerciantes en cada rincón, es también la tranquilidad que consiguen conservar sus habitantes, que parecen ajenos al claxon de las millones de motos que recorren sus avenidas. Ho Chi Minh son mujeres vendiendo desde las frutas y verduras más exóticas, hasta saltamontes o cucarachas recién pasados por la plancha; ancianos como el de la foto que, en medio de la locura vietnamita, encuentran la paz sentándose junto a un árbol; conductores de moto-taxis echando la siesta acurrucados en la moto que hace las veces de cama, y como no, niños que deambulan a cualquier hora por el frenetismo de la segunda ciudad más importante de Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh, al fin y al cabo, fue el comienzo de una ruta por el Sudeste Asiático que diíicilmente podremos olvidar.

Ho chi minh city: the city of bikes

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly called Saigon, is located south of Vietnam. Here reign motorcycles, as almost all Vietnamese have their own bike. In the past everyone he was riding a bike, but now everyone wants to move as fast as possible and gain a motorcycle is cheaper than a car. Keep two things in mind in Ho Chi Minh City about motorcycles: the brake does not exist and only heard the horn constantly. When you stand on a traffic light, the second ests surrounded by smiling Vietnamese fifty just waiting for the traffic light ATRS has to start as soon as possible. Sometimes you can see four people sitting on a motorcycle or other carrying huge doors. Certainly conduction in this city requires muchsima concentration, but is an unforgettable experience.

Ho chi minh city: la cuidad de las motos

Ho Chi Minh City, antiguamente llamada Saigon, se encuentra al sur de Vietnam. Aquí reinan las motocicletas, ya que casi todo vietnamita tiene su propia moto. En el pasado todo el mundo viajaba en bicicleta, pero ahora todos quieren desplazarse lo mas rápido posible y adquirir una motocicleta es más barato que un coche. Hay que tener dos cosas en cuenta en Ho Chi Minh City con respecto a las motocicletas: el freno no existe y solo se escucha constantemente el claxon. Cuando te paras en un semáforo, al segundo estás rodeado de cincuenta vietnamitas sonrientes que solo esperan a la cuenta atrás del semáforo para arrancar lo antes posible. A veces puedes ver a cuatro personas sentadas encima de una motocicleta o a otras transportando puertas enormes. Sin duda la conducción en esta cuidad requiere muchísima concentración, pero es un experiencia inolvidable.

Unforgettable trip to vietnam

Take the city of Saigon with large buildings, shopping centers, busy trading, is to discover the mixture of influences from French, American, Chinese and Vietnamese own, quite an experience. The part that impressed me most was seeing his herbal food, mainly rice and fish is a very healthy, but include meats and spicy in almost everything! Go everywhere in Motor was fun for me to see how women in that society have a role, although it was recognized by many contrasting. My trip to Vietnam was wonderful, every day was something new and people made me feel part of them. It's actually a different journey, exciting experience that I recommend to those with an adventurous spirit. If you want to know more visit my blog / ' http://leylazaharvietnam.blogspot.com/'

Inolvidable viaje a vietnam

Recorrer la urbe de Saigón con grandes edificios, centros comerciales, mucho movimiento comercial, es descubrir la mezcla de influencias entre Franceses, americanos, chinos y el vietnamita propio, toda una experiencia.
La parte que mas me impresiono fue ver que su alimentación a base de plantas, arroz y pescado esencialmente es una muy sana, aunque incluyen carnes y picante en casi todo!
Ir a todos lados en Motora fue para mí divertido y ver como las mujeres en aquella sociedad tienen un papel protagónico, aunque no por muchos reconocidos fue contrastante.
Mi viaje a Vietnam fue maravilloso, todos los días eran cosas nuevas y las personas me hicieron sentir parte de ellos. En realidad es un viaje diferente, excitante experiencia que recomiendo a quienes tienen espíritu aventurero. Si quieres conocer un poco más visita mi blog

Saigon

Vibrant, noisy, exciting, Ho Chi Minh City will not leave you time to get bored. Tip: get lost in his most animated as each other and look up your street when you are tired. If you are away from your destination you can always take a tuk-tuk or climb on the back of a motorcycle. Sleep, eat or get a massage: many things you can spend a few dollars. A joust a bit of culture and do not miss the War Museum. Located in the south of Vietnam, Saigon is also be a good starting point by bus to Cambodia.

Saigon

Vibrante, bruyante, passionnante, Ho Chi Minh City ne vous laissera pas le temps de vous ennuyer. Un conseil: se perdre dans ses rues plus animées les unes que les autres et ne regardez votre plan que lorsque vous êtes fatigués. Si vous êtes loin de votre destination vous pourrez toujours prendre un tuk-tuk ou grimper à l'arrière d'une moto. Dormir, manger ou se faire masser: autant de choses pour lesquelles vous ne dépenserez que quelques dollars. A joutez un peu de culture et ne ratez par le War Museum. Située au sud du Vietnam, Saigon se trouve également être un bon point de départ en bus pour le Cambodge.

City of motorcycles

Ho Chi Minh City is a big city in the south, which has nothing to do with the cities of northern Vietnam. After meeting Ha Noi, HCMC surprises you because it is very close to the western cities, but instead of cars moving thousands and thousands (4,000,000) of small-displacement motorcycles. The economic turmoil is felt clearly through the streets of downtown, full of luxury cars and skyscrapers, in contrast to the surrounding neighborhoods that are more reminiscent of Ha Noi.

La ciudad de las motos

Ho Chi Minh City es una enorme ciudad del sur, que nada tiene que ver con las ciudades del norte de Vietnam. Después de conocer Ha Noi, HCMC te sorprende porque está muy cerca de las ciudades occidentales, aunque en vez de coches circulen miles y miles (4 millones) de motocicletas de pequeña cilindrada. La efervescencia económica se palpa claramente por las calles del centro, llenas de coches de lujo y enormes rascacielos, en contraste con los barrios circundantes que recuerdan más a Ha Noi.
