Saigon Popular Destinations

The timelessness of tradition and its ancient culture is still as much a part of the city as it was in the yesteryears.
The city streets are a lively scene. They are a dizzying jumble of street markets, shops, pavement cafes, stands-on-wheels and vendors selling wares spread out on sidewalks. From DVDs to street snacks everything is sold by the pavement vendors and the air in the markets is always charged with excitement.
