Travel video about destination Sai Gon/ Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.
Saigon, an exotic trading post of bygone times, derived its name from the banks of the river upon which it is located. In 1859, the French arrived and transformed it into the capital of French colonial Indochina. With nearly 6 million inhabitants, Saigon is also known as Ho Chi Minh City and, although large, is no longer the capital of Vietnam.

Following the eventual withdrawal of both the French and the Americans, the city has prospered once again with a lively trading spirit and a special flair that has helped it to become known as, The Paris of the East.

The Post Office, a mighty colonial building of 1883, highlights the splendor of old Europe and with its colorful glass windows, cast iron gratings and balustrades, it is more like a European train station.

The History Museum was built in 1929 according to Neo-Vietnamese design and features a large range of fascinating exhibits from each epoch of the country’s history. Statues, pottery and other artifacts of various epochs are on display in various atmospheric rooms and they range from the Bronze Age culture of the Dong Son to the Funan, Chenla, Khmer and Cham periods as well as various Vietnamese dynasties.

Although past, present and future live side-by-side in this richly cosmopolitan city, today Saigon is experiencing a massive property boom and its city centre premiums now match those of both Singapore and Jakarta.

Saigon’s dramatic past began with it being a small fishing village followed by its development as the ‘Paris of the East’ and then as an American garrison city until it eventually became South Vietnam’s modern metropolis of today.

    了解目標西貢/胡志明市在越南旅遊視頻。
    西貢,舊時代的交投後,從其所位於河的銀行獲得了它的名字。 1859年,法國人趕到,把它改造成為法國殖民地印度支那的首都。隨著近6萬居民,西貢也被稱為胡志明市,雖然大,不再是越南的首都。

    It's rather endearing how the narrator mispronounces certain Vietnamese and French names, i.e. Emperor Bao Dai was pronounced as Bao Dia…..President Diem (correct pronunciation would be [Ziem] was pronounced with the consonant "D"….Palais Norodom pronounced as [pal-lay]….. Nguyen Tat Thanh was pronounced as [Win-Ta-Tam]…… LOL  

    He even pronounced Taoism as [Dowism]…. Too funny!

    That's a Brit for ya….. they just butcher and mutilate all languages other than English, yet whenever they should hear anyone mispronounce anything in English, their panties would get all bunched up quicker than the speed of light.  You just gotta love them!  :)
