5 BEST PLACES TO CELEBRATE CHIRISTMAS 2020 IN HO CHI MINH CITY

Christmas is the best time traveling in Ho Chi Minh city. The weather is good and the festive atmosphere is cool. Almost shops are decorated nicely and the main streets in the city center shine brightly under Christmas light.

So what can you do to have the best Christmas in this year? Here are some suggestions from SKYhub.

 

1. Feeling the Christmas spirit in Churches

Going to church is an indispensable part of Christmas with Christians communities, but many people who are not Christians like to go to Midnight Mass services to watch the Nativity plays, hear Christmas music & photograph the Christmas decoration of the church.

You can go to many famous churches like Notre Dame Cathedral, Pink Church, Cha Tam Church...

2. Explore Nguyen Hue Walking street

Located in central District 1, connecting People’s Committee Halls for Bach Dang Pier & Saigon river. Nguyen Hue street is a beautiful and modern walking street, where is a convergence of street bands, street artists, a large number of coffee shops, and local people. Especially in the evening here with sprinkler performances combined with light. Enjoying a cup of coffee with your friend here is a great idea for Christmas.

3. Romantic dinner cruise and enjoy the magnificent view Saigon

Why not get away from the bustle of the city streets, buildings, shopping malls, ... and onto the ancient, lazy Saigon River? The great combination of food, the magnificent night view of Saigon, and music is an unforgettable experience on this Christmas

4. Christmas party on Bui Vien Street

Bui Vien is a street in district 1 where many Western tourists choose to stay and relax (most of them are backpackers). This is a multinational and multicultural place because not only western tourists but also other locals and foreigners visit here.

Choosing a restaurant on the roadside, enjoy some bottles of Saigon beer with a few street foods like Banh Xeo, Pho, Bun Bo, … watch the passers-by on Christmas Eve, and maybe you will love Saigon from this moment.

5. Buying Christmas gifts in shopping malls

Ho Chi Minh city is known as the “shopping paradise” of Vietnam. Many shopping malls with many Christmas gifts and decorations like Santa Claus, reindeer, gift boxes, Christmas tree, ... promise to be a great place for this Christmas.

Suggestion: Takashimaya, Saigon Square, Vincom Plaza, Diamond Plaza….
