Nguyen Hue Promenade at Night

So last Wednesday, I dropped by to take a peek of Nguyen Hue’s new promenade. And because it was newly opened, I was expecting the crowd, but not on Friday night when the whole family checked it out.

I guess am just not used to seeing this much people in HCMC at a place where you really can’t do anything but ooh and aah at the available space? 😛
