Holiday in Vietnam | Ho Chi Minh Highlights

Ho Chi Minh Highlights

Vietnam’s vibrant southern metropolis -- often still referred to as Saigon by the locals - is one of Asia’s most fascinating destinations. Set along the scenic Saigon River, the central districts are adorned with pockets of charming colonial architecture, while the surrounding districts each exhibit a unique character, from the ultra-modern malls of District 7, to the bustling streets of Chinatown, to the leafy suburbs of District 2. A harmonious melding of traditional and contemporary, Vietnam is one of Ho Chi Minh City’s most enduring charms.

Luring more tourists from UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Belarus to Vietnam

According to Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, over the past number of years Vietnam has emerged as a world class destination that delivers an unrivalled visitor experience. Vietnam and its people have much to offer to European market from product diversity, authenticity, and originality mixed with different emotions.

Therefore, the Visa Exemption launched by the Government of Vietnam in June 2015 is a critical tool for promoting travel to Vietnam by permitting citizens from France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom and Belarus to visit Vietnam without obtaining a visitor visa. As of 1 July 2015, visitors travelling to Vietnam with passports issued by those five Western European countries and Belarus will no longer need a visa for stays up to 15 days.
