Does yelllow have any special significance in Vietnamese culture - it's a colour often associated with that country.

Interesting that the Peoples Committee building looks like it could be in Budapest, or any part of the old Hapsburg Empire. Nice shots.

I love yellow in every shade and tone. Thanks for sharing.

Great idea to show us three different buildings and all yellow. I'm much taken with the ornate building on the right. Such a gorgeous soft yellow too.

What is with the bird in the photo of the People's Committee building? Surely a bird of that size would be hunted and barbecued with lemon, salt and pepper?

Excellent collection of new & old. I really like the modern building in the bright yellow.
