“Ho Chi Minh City is the economic center of Vietnam and accounts for a large proportion of the economy of Vietnam. Established in 1698 by a Vietnamese noble sent by the Nguyen rulers from Hue, the city was called Saigon until the present name in 1976. The city, especially in the Chinatown, still retains many buildings having a classical Western style by the French during their colonial occupation of Vietnam.”
