City profile

Situated in the Mekong Delta, Ho Chi Minh City, capital of the former Republic of Vietnam, is the largest city in Vietnam and one of five municipalities directly under the central government of Vietnam. As the city with the most tourist traffic in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City has not many newly-built buildings or highways, and so its architectural style is shabby and dilapidated on a whole, which however mirrors the city's hallmarks.
