    Hi! Have only been there for short co trip.

    You can check out the following website :

    http://tourism.hochiminhcity.gov.vn/english/home.php



    http://www.visit-mekong.com/vietnam/...iminh_city.htm

    Personally, I think u can check out these places :

    Ben Thanh Market (even though it is meant more for shopping, i think u can get some good shots around the area and market life)

    Cu Chi Tunnels (a bit of history and some photo opportunity)

    We stay at Windsor Plaza Hotel that time and it was not bad. And there are free transport to the other districts (Ben Thanh market area).

    Saigon is the affectionate old name of Ho Chi Minh city.
