"Saigon, mon amour!" Ho Chi Minh City by tremendopunto

Ho Chi Minh City Travel Guide: 3,164 reviews and 7,301 photos

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is such a vibrating city with an adventurous fusion of old and new, west and east. There is the Colonial district, modern skyscrapers growing everywhere, the old vivid Chinese quarter of Cholon with the inscence smoked temples and markets, busy traffic with millions of scooters everywhere - riding on the pavement is just natural. Im used to bad traffic, but that is a new definition of chaos ;-)

In one word: Love! I love Saigon

    Nice photos -- I'm looking forward to more texts about them. I am also a big fan of the city of Saigon after spending lots of time there in 1964/65 and two re-visits in 1995.

    Thanks a lot for your comment and ratings on my Duesseldorf page! :-) The picture makes me smile. Actually it's a common style for dames who work under sun in Taiwan. Look forward to more pics from your SEA trip!
