Paris of the Orient

By Linda Tancs

Ho Chi Minh City (also known as Saigon) is Vietnam’s Paris of the Orient.  It was, after all, a French colony.  French inspiration is everywhere.  Consider the Opera House–reminiscent of Petit Palais–or the Notre Dame Basilica, its building
materials imported from France.  The area is not only a treasure trove of French colonial architecture but also a biological haven, hosting an increasing number of newly discovered species in the nearby Mekong Delta.
