Ho Chi Minh City ( Saigon) is very much the heart of Vietnamese business and entrepreneurialism. Saigon, as the city is still frequently referred to, is Vietnam’s largest city with a population in excess of 6 million. It is a fast-paced city full of contrasts as street vendors selling fruit and vegetables can be seen next to glitzy western-style bars and boutiques.

Saigon’s history is only 300 years old, less than a third that of the capital Hanoi. In 1859 the city was captured by the French and became the capital of Cochinchina, one of the 3 colonies that comprised the French Protectorate of Vietnam. From 1956 until its dramatic demise in April 1975, Saigon was the capital of the US-backed Republic of Vietnam.
