My District 1 (Saigon)


This is the first time I could really get a shot of this picture on my motorbike.  There is a new building near the alleyway where I live along Nguyen Trai Street.  I can’t wait until they finish since it is making the alleyway a bit cramp.  The building will most likely be  a hotel.  There are roughly 3 new hotels where I live which means I will be seeing more tourists around here.

Again, Saigon looks to be having a better year in 2012.  Yeah, I know, when the newspapers are now positive on 2012’s outlook for Vietnam’s development but I am more positive this year.

  1. I walk by there a lot on my way to the Sushi Bar at Zen Plaza. I always look to see if you are out sitting in the alley. I miss living on that same block, different alley, because of how conveniently located it is, but the constant construction noise is not missed. Living in a penthouse in Q. 4 now, far above the fray is much more relaxing for us.
