Things have changed dramatically since I first started coming here over 12 years ago, it's modernising, you can buy just about anything (well sort of, you can get marmite at least now) and the economy is thriving. The food is wonderfull, while not standing up to the variety of say Hong Kong, we have just about every cuisine available, vietnamese as well of course.
Think I'm going to be here a long time, can't think of a better place to live.
Good question, me and my wife running an advertising agency here, a small creative based agency. Been doing it for about four years and still enjoying it.
Me my wife baby Tom Lâm Geen, four dogs, two terrapins live just over the Saigon bridge in a house. Spent a lot of time renovating, especially the garden, which we have just planted, hence the mess on the photo. The area here is great, lots of expats so good shopping and a few cool bar and restaurants.
Our son, growing by the minute sets of on his first travel adventure in December, to the UK, first time he is going to feel the cold. His name by the way is not a Thai spicey soup; Tom after his Grandfather (actually the name Thomas goes back to his Great x9 Grandfather), Lâm is Vietnamese for forest, Geen is a name that has been handed down 5 generations and was my GG grandmothers maiden name.
Great restaurant and wine bar, downstairs is popular at lunch especially for the "Black Box" which is a mystery 3 course... more travel advice
This rooftop terrace Vietnamese BBQ joint is probably my favorite, opens at 5pm is usually very busy. With great... more travel advice
