10 Reasons Why I Love Living in Saigon

  •  Traffic is not so bad.  You don’t know what traffic means unless you’ve lived in Manila or Jakarta.
  • The business district is conducive for walking.  You can walk anywhere.
  • Lots of parks around.  Love the really tall forest trees.  You can go buy your lunch for take-out and eat at a park.

  • The general atmosphere in Saigon is relaxed. 
  • So many coffee shops to try and have chillax moments.
  • I don’t want to jinx it but it doesn’t rain too hard here.  And Saigon is not frequented by typhoons.
  • Maybe because I’m just a visitor — but Saigon shops surprise me every time.
  • Taxi cabs don’t choose their passengers.  Relatively easy to get cabs here.
  • Love how interesting the postcards are here and how nice people are at the City Post Office.
  • We live in a quiet area where it’s safe for my son to play.

  1. Found your blog at N@W. My husband and I went to Saigon in December 09 and yes I agree with you -the business district is conducive for walking. We stayed at the Continental and we loved walking around- we rode the cab I guess just twice or thrice. We loved the parks where there’s free wifi- we loved the coffee shops and the art galleries. It’s such a lovely small city. Your photos reminded me of that beautiful trip my husband and I took before I conceived my baby girl 🙂
