Số 01 Nguyễn Tất Thành, Phường 12, Quận 4, Hồ Chí Minh 700000, Vietnam
During my more than two-year stay in Ho Chi Minh City I’ve experienced things I’ll never forget more often than I can count. They’ve been unique experiences that made lasting impressions. While it’s shaken a lot of the scars from its war-torn past...

10 Đặng Tất, Tân Định, Quận 1, Hồ Chí Minh, Vietnam
Cuc Gach Quan or depending on who you ask, "Brick" is an old converted French villa designed by Vietnamese architect Tran Binh. It's not easy exploring the local grub in a country like Vietnam. Sometimes it takes a place like Brick to highlight...

I first discovered Vietnamese food as a kid in Montreal, but I always thought it was just about the pho. Of course, like many countries in the region, the food differs depending on the province and one of the many dishes I learned to love were...

Located in HCMC’s Chinatown, this is a superb place to go and take pictures. Curiosities are copious and most of the time foreigners will have no clue what they’re looking at. The food stalls are frequented mostly by Vietnamese but this shouldn’t...

1 Nguyễn Tất Thành, Phường Cẩm Phổ, Hội An, Quảng Nam, Vietnam
It was hot. And humid. And we walked to the Ho Chi MInh museum only to find out that it did not open for an more a couple hours. Instead of walking back to our hotel, we found the first cafe we stumbled upon near the Dragon House (Nha Long) Wharf...

151/5 Đồng Khởi, Bến Nghé, Quận 1, Hồ Chí Minh 700000, Vietnam
We spent an afternoon shopping in Saigon and made a stop at L'Usine. The retro decor and merchandise was somewhat akin to Anthropologie. On the way out we passed by the cupcakes but they also offer sandwiches and various beverages.

One of the best dishes that i had in Ho Chi Minh City. Steamed rice rolls with BBQ pork dipping is highly recommended for appetizer. Don't forget to put a lot of the pork dipping on your Banh Cuon. If you are very hungry and prefer something...

Bến Thành Quận 1, 37 Nguyễn Trãi, Phường Phạm Ngũ Lão, Quận 1, Hồ Chí Minh, Vietnam
You'll have to wait in line for this freshly grilled pork patty banh mi, but it's worth it. This woman's only making her famous sandwich in the afternoons, though, so make sure to get there between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. to get a taste.
