Ho Chi Minh City is an enormous city without public transportation, causing your accessibility to local attractions to be quite important. I suggest you find accommodation in either District 1 (the city center) or the adjoining District 3. District 1 is the most modern and busiest area of Ho Chi Minh City. It is home to the famous Ben Thanh market, Nguyen Hue Walking Street, and a lot of shopping centers. It is also home to Notre Dame Square where two of Saigon’s most famous landmarks exist: the Notre Dame Cathedral and Central Post office. All these attractions will be at your feet along with endless street food vendors, restaurants, and nightlife. 

In Ho Chi Minh City’s District 3, these same attractions are still within walking distance but in a quieter, trendier neighborhood. The sidewalks in District 3 are also a bit wider and less busy than many streets in District 1. Additionally, District 3 is an ideal location for shoppers. There are many streets lined with boutiques, but the prices can be higher than some of the markets in District 1. The War Remnants Museum is a popular yet harrowing destination depicting the Vietnam- American war.

District 3 also has a lively food scene scattered with trendy restaurants and charming coffee shops. It is also where you can find Turtle Lake which isn’t really a lake but an architectural water feature. At night it comes alive with street vendors and young locals. 

Regardless of which you choose, you are going to be right in the middle of all the action and will have a plethora of accommodations to fit your travel style.
