Ho Chi Minh City(Saigon), Vietnam-The Megalopolis

After spending a week in the rapidly growing Ho Chi Minh City more thoughts on the future of this megalopolis of Southern Vietnam. District 7 and 2 are expat enclaves with modern shopping facilities along with Western style restaurants and shopping. I think there are even more Western tourists along with visitors from across East Asia, Southeast Asia, and South Asia. It has been just as interesting to watch the rapid growth of Saigon as it has to study the historical sites as well as getting to know the traditional markets and local food/restaurants. I’m hopeful the new MRT/train system will improve the traffic congestion and air quality in the area bringing a better quality of commute and lifestyle to locals. Thanks so much for listening! I would love to get your feedback on the podcast. What cities or countries are you most interested in? Send me an email to john@fareasttravels.com.
