Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnamese: Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh; About this sound listen, formerly named Saigon (Vietnamese: Sài Gòn; About this sound listen, French: Saïgon), is the largest city in Vietnam. Under the name Saigon, it was the capital of the French colony of Cochinchina and later of the independent republic of South Vietnam from 1955–75. South Vietnam was a capitalist and anti-communist state which fought against the communist North Vietnamese and Viet Cong during the Vietnam War, with the assistance of the United States and other countries. On 30 April 1975, Saigon fell and the war ended with a Communist victory. On 2 July 1976, Saigon merged with the surrounding Gia Định Province and was officially renamed Ho Chi Minh City after Hồ Chí Minh (although the name Sài Gòn is still commonly used).[3]
The metropolitan area, which consists of the Ho Chi Minh City metropolitan area, Thủ Dầu Một, Dĩ An, Biên Hòa and surrounding towns, is populated by more than 9,000,000 people,[nb 1] making it the most populous metropolitan area[4] in Vietnam. The city’s population is expected to grow to 13.9 million in 2025.[5]
The Ho Chi Minh City Metropolitan Area, a metropolitan area covering most parts of the Southeast region plus Tiền Giang Province and Long An Province under planning, will have an area of 30,000 square kilometres (11,583 sq mi) with a population of 20 million inhabitants by 2020.[6] According to the Mercer Human Resource Consulting, Economist Intelligence Unit and ECA International, Ho Chi Minh City is ranked 132 on the list of world’s most expensive cities for expatriate employees.

  2. First couple of times riding as passenger on motorbike in heavy traffic scared me more than flying combat missions. Even crossing the street seemed like it would me more stressful than taking point on a jungle trail. This old guy was taken by the hand of an even older woman and we walked across street but she took the point.
    As crazy as Saigon first seemed when I returned, I quickly fell in love with it. Every day like an adventure and I have met fascinating people on the street and in coffee shops. Trying to learn Vietnamese is keeping my brain from wasting away.

  3. wow….love your videos, dude, especially those done while you were cruising on a bike….they really make me feel like I'm touring the streets of HCM myself….again nicely done!

  4. im planning to visit this city next year..i saw a lot of motorcyclist in this video..but they are very very discipline…Like riding below 50kmph-6okmph..if it is in my country, motorcyclist will usually press the throttle in the middle of busy street.. 🙁 cannot wait to visit Ho Chi Minh!
