Travel Tips for HCMC in July
For the ones who visit Ho Chi Minh City these days, it would be a great pity not to taste some specialties of the tropics like durian, dragon fruit, rambutan, and magosteen. Tourists can purchase various kinds of fresh fruit which are sold along the streets by vendors or in big open-air markets at reasonable price. Besides, foreigners should drop by Nguyen Canh Chan Street to taste the unique mixed fresh fruit dessert which is much preferred by Saigon’s youngsters. The tasty dessert at very cheap price (about US$0.7/ fruit plate) is worth trying at least once. In a nutshell, July is not a really good time to visit Ho Chi Minh City due to rainy weather.
However, if you travel to the city this month, you should spend time in fruit markets or visit fruit orchards in nearby provinces to taste the flavor of the tropics.
