Saigon, or Ho Chi Minh City as it’s been officially called since the end of the American War, may look like just another Asian mega-city, but under the surface (and in its tiny, labyrinthine alleyways), there’s an incredible place to be discovered with your camera. Further afield, the Mekong Delta offers tropical jungle, idyllic waterways and leisurely riverside life – apart from when its brilliant, chaotic floating markets are going great guns.
