This new bridge over the Saigon river has just installed relatively impressive lighting underneath that changes colours every 10 seconds or so. I usually would not have a problem with this except that HCMC suffers from poor electricity supply and pointless lighting (as opposed to necessary street lighting) I find, um, pointless. I did not realise it at the time, but while traveling on a one-way street, the sign is also facing the wrong way. While this may seem strange to international visitors, with so many motorbikes driving the wrong way down one-way streets it might actually have some impact.
