From classy hotels, a unique coffee culture, a growing art scene, and upscale restaurants to authentic street food stalls and boutiques, students are sure to experience something new every day. Previously occupied by the Chinese and colonised by the French, HCMC plays host to many historic icons such as museums, churches, temples and war memorials that shouldn’t be missed! Your CISaustralia Site Director will be there to support you, provide local travel and restaurant tips, and assist you in immersing yourself in the local culture.
