Saigon – a beautiful girl

This is the first post in a series of introducing about cities in Vietnam. As I come from there so I will have my own look at my home country. I consider these cities as young girls with specific characters of each place.

Saigon is  the first city to starting up. Why is Saigon? Because I love Saigon  very much. I am not Saigonaise but most of the beautiful time in my life is in Saigon. I call it a beautiful girl.

Her beauty comes from the past with old buildings were built by French architect.
