With a number of rivers snaking through Ho Chi Minh City in southern Vietnam, it’s not surprising that the city boasts over 200 bridges. From the historic Saigon Bridge to the colourful ‘Starlight Bridge’, here are some of the most famous and beautiful structures in Ho Chi Minh City (also known as Saigon).

Easily identifiable by two sweeping red structures, Ông Lớn Bridge is one of the most unusual and charming in the city. Although the bridge doesn’t have a particularly interesting part in Ho Chi Minh City’s history, it does have a certain importance in current day culture. The spot has become a popular meeting place for young people, especially in the evenings when you can find a number of motorbike drivers parked up and snapping selfies.
