In this Ho Chi Minh City travel guide, we climb up to the Skydeck of the Bitexco Financial Tower, check out views of the tallest building in South East Asia and eat Bun Mam: a speciality dish of southern Vietnam.

    I agree fermented anything does sound unappealing!! Looked amazing though 🙂 Great idea asking the locals where to hit! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    hey there. what wonderful videos of vietnam. i am sad to see and hear what hoi an has transformed into. i guess tourism is a necessary evil for many areas to survive yet it is always so ironic the very thing that attracts people can be a curse. da nang looks very interesting and hanoi looks mad af. i must get to vietnam; i was born in vietnam but have never returned. your videos give me a greater urgency to get there. love all your work. thank you.

    Just found your channel…your videos are awesome! The Vietnam series is super helpful, as I'm planning a trip there now. Your stuff is even more polished and helpful than some of the huge travel vloggers our there – seriously great work!

    What a fun way to explore. The local food would have excited me the most too. That soup (hot pot?) looked delicious.

    This is such a great edited video again. The idea is good as well to ask locals what to do. You got some good diverse advice from modern buildings to old ones as well, especially that old post office is lovely. Bum Mam looks awesome with the seafood!!!

    We need some of the energy coffee that will change lives! That is a really great view of the river from the sky deck. Landmark 81 is insanely tall! April likes the red brick church–red is her favorite color. You had us at "seafood gumbo", hahaha. Did you have a beer at the Donkey bar? 😎 Excellent work on telling the story here!

    Omg, it really does look like Avenger tower! Does have a nice view, even in crappy weather. You got some great suggestions. Love the architecture and food. Always great to talk to locals!

    What a great idea! I should ask locals more about the good spots. This brought me back to my own trip here. The market really is crazy but so so amazing. The food looks delicious! Thanks for sharing, I always love your videos 🙂

    What a fun and original way to see a city! The fish doesn't sound too tasty, but I guess I have to take your word. Looking forward to the Myanmar series!

    We really loved Ho Chi Minh – glad you found some inspiration and some people to give you some unique suggestions! Was cool to see a couple of things we missed while there!

    Very cool, that building really does look like it's straight out of an Avengers movie. I wonder if they used it a little as their inspiration.

    I watched your video from beginning to end. Your production is always top notch, easy to watch and keeps me engaged throughout. How do you like the Samyang lens? Pros? Cons? I'm seriously thinking of getting the Sony A7III, still can't decide between native lenses or after market. Oh the agony of too much choice! Feints faint.

    What an awesome way to travel!! I always try to get tips and tricks from locals or people who've been to the destination i'm about to travel but this is a whole another level!! Super job man, i hope you try this style of travelling again, i'm so inspired to try this out myself!

    This is awesome! Love the cinematography. Vietnam is one of my favorite countries ever and this really takes me back

    Although we are skipping Ho Chi Minh City this time we really enjoyed the video, the Bitexco Tower really looks like the one from Avengers! We'll be sure to try Bun Mam. Thanks for sharing, we always enjoy your videos!

    It really is nice conneting with local people. They will point you to the right direction. That britexco building does look like tony start's building. Saigon is really more of a city compared to hanoi. The landmark 81 reminds me of a place in Singapore. Food is really the best way to experience the culture. Experiencing it the local way is the best experince. And that Bun Nam (am i right? lol) looks sso good. I love Viet food.

    Very nice video. We are learning a lot about Vietnam from your videos. It's always good to get a local's perspective. We had an incredible guided tour of Thailand from several local business professionals that my husband was working with when we visited there. They were kind enough to take time off during the weekend to show us around. We returned the favor when they visited us in California.

    I LOVE Saigon. Best food in all of Vietnam (and that's saying something), including Bánh Mì Huỳnh Hoa, which I count as one of my top 5 foods anywhere in the world! 😋 Bun mam is pretty yum – fermented seafood is a staple base pretty much everywhere in SE Asia for intense umami. I love how chaotic everything is, and had a great two weeks there. Definitely a great way to end your time in Vietnam! 🙌

    Well I literally did none of the things you mentioned in this video… Shows the importance of meeting locals and them showing you around! Loved the vid mate 🙂

  22. Grumpy Bore 6 April, 2020 at 05:22 Reply

    ooh, up on the 49th floor of Bitexco with all that glass….I'm scared of heights!
    so nice meeting new people!

    "Fermented anything doesn't sound that appealing …" really? Sourdough bread? Miso (fermented soybeans)? kimchi? Wine? Yogurt? Cheese? That being said, I can't stand the smell of bun mam 🙂 I don't care how much umami the fish/shrimp paste adds to the soup.

    Hey Ryan, way to give er in the city of tall skinny buildings!!! That was a cool tower, good idea to scope it out with a local twist.
