Chinatown, Saigon







Chinatown - Sai Gon





During the Vietnam war soldiers and deserters from the US Army maintained a thriving black market in Chinatown trading in various American and US Army issue items. Chinatown, near the Quan Am pagoda, was the scene of photo-journalist Eddie Adams' famous execution photograph.

Nice! I've been to Saigon (HCMC) and Hanoi and like the feel of Hanoi a little better. Vietnam in general has a great look and feel. I ran into a great tea shop reference in HCMC if you're still there, teas someone wouldn't find elsewhere
