Take a tour of City of Ho Chi Minh in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam - part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.

Ho Chi Minh, formerly known as Saigon, is the largest and most well-known city in Vietnam.

Due to its importance to the country, each federal building, including this central post office is lavishly adorned with ornate architectural details.

The town was renamed in honor of the famous Marxist leader who formed the Democratic Republic of Vietnam in the mid 20th century.

Because Vietnam was a colony of France for nearly a hundred years, there is a visible Western influence in many parts of the city.

Since the country won its independence, many symbols of national pride have been built, such as the People's Committee Building.

The city has an almost limitless array of museums, palaces, restaurants, theaters, and sporting events to give visitors a worthy experience.
