Ho Chi Minh City

This website is sponsored by THE WELL, Ho Chi Minh City’s downtown international church. Ho Chi Minh City is a great city with lots to see and do. Ho Chi Minh City began as a small fishing village known as Prey Nokor. The area that the city now occupies was originally swampland, and was inhabited by Khmer people for centuries before the arrival of the Vietnamese. In Khmer folklore southern Vietnam was given to the Vietnamese government as a dowry for the marriage of a Vietnamese princess to a Khmer prince in order to stop constant invasions and pillaging of Khmer villages.
