Ho Chi Minh city in the third order of Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2018 list | Timemark Travel

Quick search

Though long heralded as hip, Vietnam’s southern supercity somehow keeps getting cooler. Aging apartment blocks are being colonised by vintage clothes stores and independent coffee shops, innovative breweries like Heart of Darkness and East West Brewing are fuelling one of the best craft beer scenes in Southeast Asia, and a selection of eclectic venues are strengthening the local music scene.

Add these recent developments to the city’s essential long-standing attractions like the War Remnants Museum, which details HCMC’s recent history in eye-opening displays, a pioneering street food scene and accommodation suited to all standards – not forgetting superb flight connections – and it appears this buzzing Asian megalopolis is in no danger of going out of style.
