HCM CITY — HCM City has joined Bangkok and Bali in a new list of best places for solo travel, according to Airbnb, an accommodation service that allows people to list their homes and hotels for holiday rentals.
Airbnb recently put HCM City among the five most exciting places for a solo traveller’s vacation.
Among other things, it mentions Bến Thành Market as place where visitors to HCM City should get lost for a while in the maze of thousands of shops selling a wide range of goods.
The War Remnants Museum, the Independence Palace and the Củ Chi Tunnel, around 70 kilometres northwest of downtown HCM City, are war-related sites popular among visitors.
HCM City was named among the 15 fastest-growing tourist cities in the world by Travelsupermarket website, which forecast that Việt Nam’s biggest city will welcome 10.2 million international tourists by 2025. — VNS
