Saigon by night

02.20.11 | Comment?

In Saigon, we stayed a good chunk of the time in the backpacker district. At night, when the temperature drops a little, the scene becomes very lively. Or maybe is it just more interesting to watch the hustle and bustle of the city when lights shine and people crowd the streets to find a good, cheap beer.

There’s as much traffic in the evening as any time of the day.

This was the street right outside our hotel.

This is what it looks like to walk on one of the most happening corners of the district. Tourists, music, flashy lights.

Off the main drag, there were many alleys with smaller, quieter, cheaper restaurants… most with outdoor kitchens like this one.
