Downtown construction

There is a lot of construction happening all over Saigon at the moment, for a more detailed look go here. The city seems in an incredible rush to modernise and I cannot help wondering how well planned the new Saigon will be. There is a real lack of green space within the city and sites like the very large hospital grounds in the foreground must be kept at bay from developers. Time will tell I guess

It's really impressive , i'm not a big fan of big buildings , i hope they keep the old houses and don't destroy everthing for modernity ??

Just came back from a weekend trip to saigon last weekend, was amazing! Visiting ur site to see more saigon goodies :)

btw, i agree saigon seemed to have a lot of construction going on, but still the greenery is very much around in my opinion.
