Same city, different era.
The ex-government of South Vietnam with USA backed called their capitol "Sai Gon". The current communist government calls this comercial city "Ho Chi Minh".

So, it depends on who open this thread. If this person is from western country, he or she would labeled as "Sai Gon". If the person is inside Viet Nam, he or she would call "Ho Chi Minh".

Saigon is still the official name, Hochiminh city is only on the authority paper. All the people in Vietnam still refer to it as Saigon, except the communist government, or anti-saigon members. Heck even the airline code for the city is still using SGN (abbreviation for Saigon) instead of HCM.

Because of the broad river, it reminds me a little of Bangkok.
