Among destinations for solo travelers, Ho Chi Minh City is most suitable for solo backpackers, according to U.S. online magazine

The Vietnamese metropolis is a bustling and affordable place that offers a wide range of attractions to solo travelers, from the inexpensive food and accommodations to an abundance of cultural and historical sites.

“Its vibrant culture, friendly people, and amazing food attract millions of tourists annually," said.

"And it’s also one of Vietnam’s safest cities.”

The website recommends travelers try some of the mouth-watering street food available in every corner of the city, especially in District 1, District 3, and District 5, do shopping at Ben Thanh Market, and visit the Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica of Saigon in District 1.

Travelers can book tours to the Mekong Delta from Ho Chi Minh City.

It is also easy to get around the city with many transportation options, from buses, taxis to motorbikes, and metro lines in the near future. 

Ho Chi Minh City welcomed nearly 1.4 million foreign tourists and 10.6 million local travelers in the first four months of this year, according to the municipal Department of Tourism. 

The city set a target to serve five million international arrivals as well as over 35 million domestic visitors and generate some VND160 trillion (US$6.8 million) in tourism revenue this year.
