Du Mien Cafe, located in the Phu Nhuan District, used to be one of my favorite cafes to sit and relax with friends. It was quiet, music volume was low, it generally was a very peaceful place. I used to visit Du Mien at least once or twice a week.
Now, Du Mien is like many of the other local coffee shops. The volume of music was quite high. The noise from the conversations made it difficult to speak to the person you came with. At one point, we asked the waiter to find us a quiet area so my friend and I could have a meeting. He could not find one. We ended up leaving for a quieter coffee shop.
Saigon is sure changing so fast
