    Ho Chi Minh Cityball, also known as Saigonball is a cityball of Vietnamball. It is the biggest city of Vietnamball. Ho Chi Minh Cityball was named after Hồ Chí Minh. It was once known as Prey Nokorball and later as Saigonball. It borders Tây Ninhball and Bình Dươngball to the north, Đồng Naiball and Bà Rịa–Vũng Tàuball to the east, Long Anball to the west and the South China Sea to the south.

    Etymology

    Ho Chi Minh Cityball is named after President Hồ Chí Minh.

    An etymology of Sài Gòn is that Sài is a Sino-Vietnamese word meaning "firewood, lops, twigs; palisade", while Gòn is another Sino-Vietnamese word meaning "stick, pole, bole", and whose meaning evolved into "cotton" in Vietnamese (bông gòn, literally "cotton stick", i.e., "cotton plant", then shortened to gòn). This name may refer to the many kapok plants that the Khmer people had planted around Prey Nokor, and which can still be seen at Cây Mai temple and surrounding areas. Other proposed etymologies draw parallels from Tai-Ngon , the Cantonese name of Chợ Lớnball, which means "embankment" , and Vietnamese Sai Côn, a translation of the Khmer Prey Nokor.

    History

    Ho Chi Minh Cityball began as a small fishing village founded by Khmer peoples. It was known as Prey Nokorball. Beginning in the early 17th century, Vietnamese settlers colonized it. In 1623, King Chey Chettha II of Cambodia-icon.png Cambodiaball (1618–28) allowed Vietnamese refugees fleeing the Trịnh–Nguyễn civil war in Vietnamball to settle in the area of Prey Nokor and to set up a custom house there. Increasing waves of Vietnamese settlers, which the Cambodian kingdom could not impede because it was weakened by war with Thailandball, slowly Vietnamising the area. Later the city is known as Saigonball

    Conquered by Franceball and Spainball in 1859, the city was influenced by the French during their colonial occupation of Vietnamball, and a number of classical Western-style buildings and French villas in the city reflect this. Saigon had, in 1929, a population of 123,890, including 12,100 French.

    Former Emperor Bảo Đại made Saigonball the capital of the State of Vietnamball in 1949 with himself as head of state. On 30 April 1975, Saigonball fell and the Vietnam War ended. It is nowadays known as Ho Chi Minh Cityball, the biggest city of Vietnamball.
