Ho Chi Minh City, formerly called Saigon, is located in southern Vietnam. As the country’s largest city, there’s plenty to see and do during your holiday. Ho Chi Minh City reveals an eclectic urban scene, where you’ll come across ancient temples tucked around the corner from innovative skyscraper architecture.
Book Ho Chi Minh City flights and get ready to explore. Head to Saigon Skydeck for sweeping views of the city and river, and then mosey into the Thien Hau Pagoda, which is dedicated to the sea goddess. There are countless ways of getting to know this city, from touring the Reunification Palace to losing yourself in the exhibits and artefacts at the Museum of Vietnamese History. Soak up all this city has to offer—the shopping complexes, religious sites, and historical attractions—on your next holiday in Vietnam.
Ho Chi Minh City has two seasons: wet and dry. The dry season, which runs between December and April, is the more popular time to visit, because you don’t have to worry about packing your gumboots and umbrellas. The temperature averages 28 degrees Celsius, but it has been known to hit 39 degrees in late April.
While Ho Chi Minh City is clearly divided into two distinct seasons, December to April is the shoulder season, when the humidity is moderate and the mercury has yet to peak.
The monsoon season, from May to November, is when the city is often quieter, as some tourists like to avoid the rain. While it does tend to rain in the afternoons, the showers pass through quickly, leaving behind clear and sunny skies. Pack some waterproof gear and an umbrella, and enjoy cheap flights to Ho Chi Minh City at this time.
