The Ho Chi Minh City Markets are worth a visit. You'll find just about everything in the markets and there are some good eating places. The traffic on the main streets of Ho Chi Minh City is very heavy. It's mainly motor bikes. Once you start to cross keep going and the traffic tends to flow around you like a stream. If you're overwhelmed by it then you'll always find a cyclo that will take you across the street for a small payment. One of the easy ways to explore the city is by cyclo. A cyclo is a bicycle with seat and cover and they are very cheap to hire for an hour or so.
