Formerly the capital of South Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is the site of an amazing mix of Eastern and Western culture. Commonly known by its former name, Saigon, HCMC is a superb location for TEFL courses in Vietnam.
With a population of over 7 million people, HCMC is Vietnam’s largest city as well as its economic, industrial and financial centre. However, despite its large size and continued development, the city still retains much of its culture and traditions, where city life takes places on the streets in cafes, markets, stalls, shops and many waterside venues. Although recent history has taken its toll on Vietnam, there is an abundance of things to see and do here. Ben Thanh Market is the largest in the city and is a great place to pick up a bargain and to explore HCMC’s local culture and traditions. Don’t forget to drop by Chinatown and visit the Thien Hau Temple. Wherever you go in this vibrant city, you will find an energetic, optimistic feel, with many large multinational companies establishing offices here the city is rapidly modernising, yet HCMC retains its uniquely Vietnamese dynamic.
Not far from HCMC, you can enjoy the many superb beaches that are dotted along the coast, as well as the unique beauty of the tall mountain ranges that are located inland. Wherever you go in Vietnam, you will experience the hospitality and charm of its warm and friendly people.
