One of the great benefits of having friends in town is the opportunity it affords us to be tourists in our own city. Here’s a plethora of photos from our night of tourism…
Bustling backpacker district (Bùi Viện street) below as we enjoyed a patio dinner
Night traffic on Bùi Viện
Backdrop of remaining Christmas and New Year lights amidst the traffic
Although the Vietnamese celebrate the Lunar New Year (in February), they will use any excuse to put up lights
Pretty LV display
Marc Jacobs – Designers. Capitalism. Inconsistent politics?
Exquisite balance to this gallery, even from the outside
Chúc Mừng Năm Mới = Happy New Year
Standing in the middle of the roundabout to capture the lights lining both sides of the street
The Rex Hotel
Statue of Hồ Chí Minh all lit up
Cityscape at night
Uncle Ho (yes, they actually call him that) overlooking his city
Goodnight, Sài Gòn!
