8/50.- Saigon, Notre Dame Square


Although the capital of Vietnam is Hanoi, the financial and business center of this Southeast Asian country is Saigon.

When visiting this country I saw many western faces, but it was only in Saigon that I found many foreigners that lived here. I am sure expats find it easier to live here than anywhere else in Vietnam. There are some good job opportunities for foreigners in Saigon. Most of them come from France, Australia and Germany.

As you can see in these pictures, streets, buildings, bars and restaurants look very western. But do not be misguided, there is also the "Vietnamese" side of Saigon, that we will visit later.
