Saigon (Ho Chi Minh), Vietnam - street life

Fruit sellers in Saigon

For those who come from more orderly cities, Saigon will strike them as chaotic, anarchic, disorderly and bewildering. These impressions are true but it's precisely these things that give Asian cities like Saigon a special character.

In Saigon the street life is full of colour and human interest. People practically live on the street, oblivious to the press of humanity, noise and pollution of all sorts.

  1. Hi Roger,
    Your pictures are alive; they move on the little screens, snaps of life and colour. I can even hear the movements.
    You are not only a brilliant writer but have an eye for beauty as well.
    Thanks for the pictures. I am thinking how to fit one or two on my blog.
