Mengikut sejaranya, nama asal Ho Chi Minh adalah Saigon dan adalah bandar terbesar di Vietnam. Dahulunya [ernah dikenali sebagai Prey Nokor, senua pelabuhan yg penting untuk negara Khmer pada kurun ke 17.

Apa yg aku lihat, HCM ini ada la sebuah bandar baru yg agak teratur, dan aku boleh katakan sebuah bandar yg bersih. Sibuk dengan penduduknyayg dianggarkan seramai hampir 9 juta orang ...ini apa yg aku baca dari laman tersebut lah...atau bacalh dibawah ni.

Under the name Saigon, it was the capital of the French colony of Cochin-china and later of the independent state of South Vietnam from 1955-75. South Vietnam, as an anti-communist state, fought against the communist North Vietnamese and Viet Cong during the Vietnam War, with aid from the United States of America and countries including Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. Saigon fell when it was captured by the communists on April 30, 1975, bringing an end to the War with its enemy's victory. Vietnam was then turned into a communist state with the South overtaken. In 1976, Saigon merged with the surrounding Gia Định Province and was officially renamed Hồ Chí Minh City after Hồ Chí Minh (although the name Sài Gòn is still commonly used.)[2]

The city center is situated on the banks of the Saigon River, 60 kilometers (37 mi) from the South China Sea[3] and 1,760 kilometers (1,090 mi) south of Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam.

The metropolitan area, which consists of the Hồ Chí Minh City metropolitan area, Thủ Dầu Một, Dĩ An, Biên Hòa and surrounding towns, is populated by more than 9,000,000 people,[nb 1] making it the most populous metropolitan area[4] in Vietnam and the countries of the former French Indochina. The Greater Hồ Chí Minh City Metropolitan Area, a metropolitan area covering most parts of Đông Nam Bộ plus Tiền Giang and Long An provinces under planning will have an area of 30,000 square kilometers with a population of 20 million inhabitants by 2020.[5] According to the Mercer Human Resource Consulting, Economist Intelligence Unit and ECA International, Hồ Chí Minh City is ranked 132 on the list of world's most expensive cities for expatriate employees.[6]
