Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon, as it is also called for old times’ sake, is an incredibly crowded and noisy city with completely chaotic traffic, but at the same time, with a unique Asian flavor. Every morning, millions of small mopeds take to the roads of the metropolis and thousands of residents rush to the parks for morning exercise.
In the center of Ho Chi Minh City, the heritage of the French colonialists is mixed with the modern reality of glass skyscrapers, and traditional eateries serving pho soup are side by side with trendy restaurants. Everything is honking and buzzing around, gradually merging into an incessant cacophony. But what is surprising is that after a while you begin to get used to this chaos and even enjoy it.
