Expert Review: InterContinental Hotel Saigon

  |   Mekong River

Many Mekong River cruises either begin or end in the bustling city of Saigon, Vietnam. Saigon has been renamed to Ho Chi Minh City, however locals and foreigners continue to refer to the city by its former name. The Intercontinental Saigon hotel is located in the heart of the city. It’s a luxury landmark right in the central business district. It’s walking distance away from iconic tourist destinations like the Notre Dame Cathedral, Opera House and many trendy shops and restaurants.
