Perhaps nothing illustrates better how Sài Gòn has grown than the following pictures taken at night.
A good place to capture the city’s skylight is from the middle of Thủ Thiêm bridge, built in 2008. The city has grown by crossing the river toward the North, on the left side of the picture.
Traffic on the bridge was typical for the city. Thousands and thousands of cars and motorbikes going in both directions.
On our last day in Sài Gòn, we went to Tao Đàn park, a green oasis in the center of the city.
The park has added several attractions since the last time I saw it.
The following photos are from a water lily pond in front of the Hùng Vương temple.
I was surprised to see many young people in a corner of the park. Some were practicing a conical hat dance, with each dancer holding two hats. They got better with their practice as I kept shooting with my camera.
