We all capture memories with our cameras during vacations, don’t we? In large and crowded cities, it is not easy to have a good picture without being photobombed. We understand that, so we have prepared for you the best places to take photos in Ho Chi Minh City.

Tan Dinh Church

Tan Dinh Church is one of the oldest churches and thanks to its pink cover, it is also one of the best places to take photos in Ho Chi Minh City. So all the girls (and even boys) who love the color pink out there, make sure you do not miss this destination.

Nguyen Hue Boulevard

If you want a shot to capture the busy and lively life at night in Ho Chi Minh City, this street would be a nice place. A large part in the middle of the boulevard is specified for passengers, so you can feel free to stroll around and look for a perfect spot for your picture. To complete your visit, you can take a look at Apartment 42 Nguyen Hue - the location of many coffee shops where you can either enjoy the view and nice decoration or order a good drink.

Thu Thiem Park on The Roof of Thu Thiem Tunnel

Located on the conjunction between District 1 and District 2, Thu Thiem Park offers a marvelous view to Saigon River and modern buildings including Bitexco Skydeck. We suggest you come here before sunset so that you can enjoy the refreshing winds from the river while watching the sun setting down, then have some street foods before capture the colorful nightlife of Ho Chi Minh City. It is also near to Nha Rong Wharf - an important historical destination - so check it out if you have some extra time.

Mong Bridge

Mong Bridge is not only one of the best places to take photos in Ho Chi Minh City but also a stop for you to get off the tourist trails. This ancient emerald green bridge sits in the grip of contemporary buildings. Therefore, in just one photo, you can capture the two opposite sides of this metropolitan city. You can visit the bridge anytime in a day since it would show different aspects of beauty from day till night.

Address: Vo Van Kiet Street, Nguyen Thai Binh Ward, District 1

Lao Hac Quan

Named after a character from a famous Vietnamese short story, this coffee shop has done a fantastic job to create what the locals usually think of when they hear this name. Since the context of the story is in a Vietnamese rural area dozens of years ago, the decoration and design of Lao Hac Quan carry an ancient vibe. Every object and corner here can be a special remark for your photo. Like many other vintage cafes in Ho Chi Minh City, the lightning here is quite dim for a good shot, so you might want to consider coming here in the morning and afternoon.
