It looks kinda nice. It doesn't seem to be dirty and crowded. And I could't see any slums (or maybe some of them are multiple floor slums).

Its good to see Vietnam growing fast.

The slums are locate other side of the Saigon river (District 4 if i do not remember wrong) .. and there are still a lot of poor people living in Saigon at the moment, some of them live in a multiple floors buildings and only own a small room area ..

The pics shown are one of the most developed area in Saigon (District 1) many office buildings and foreign companies are locate in this area (You can find branches of the banks like BOC, Citibanks, ANZ, Commonwealth, HSBC, DBS ... etc) and District 7 - the denest district in Saigon where all the newly built tall apartments blocks locate

You can see slums behind the two white buildings (on the right hand side) in District 1, but now it's getting less and less since most of them are demolish and this area is planning to build some tall public apartment buildings

Actually, the lower center black triangle will be replaced by a 36 stories Sabeco (Saigon Beer Corp) Tower under the newest plan. And couple blocks away to the lower left corner will also be a 35 tories tower (in place of the suspended 55 stories Windhorst tower).

I just went to Vietnam not long ago. Let me tell you that Saigon is the most exciting and bustling city I've ever been to. Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur are nothing compared to it. Pure thrill and adrenalin rush.

lets just hope they don't have an urge to own cars otherwise there will be pollution

I visited Ho Chi Minh city in January

and Nha Trang

it seemed like a lot of basic infrastructure work was going on

this city has the chance to devlop into something special and different than other se asian cities

and it has an 80 million pop country to back it up


still low rise though
nice and cheap compared to London though

Yeah. Because you are a Vietnamese who immigrated to the USA. Are you a gangster in China Town?

I dont know if a warning is enough by this time. It isnt his first, and its not the first warning issued.

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) has lots of potential, pretty soon it'll join the ranks of the great cities of SEA.

Having undergone so much, Vietnam is doing pretty well. Their growth rate is very impressive. And Saigon does look pretty good for everything it has gone through. Not bad at all, Vietnam sure is getting more modern. The streets in those areas are very clean and well kept.
