Saigon, which now goes by the name Ho Chi Minh, is the largest city of Vietnam that occupies most of its southern part. Named after the communist leader Ho Chi Minh at the end of Vietnam War, it is the economic center of the country. Knowing the tragic stories that the senseless Vietnam War brought, it is good to know in this city that Vietnam has moved on.
