Another year, another new high rise. In my previous trip to Ho Chi Minh City last month, I resisted going into the newly opened (30 April 2010) Vincom Tower. But this time round, I decided to check it out. Vincom Tower is built on what used to be Lam Son park (I think). I used to walk by this park ever so often, when I used to study here back in 2006. Well, now instead of Lam Son Park, you can find Popeye’s Chicken, Carl’s Junior, Breadtalk, all in one building. Hello capitalism!

Another year, another mall

Walked through the hotels from the Vietnam War era, and took yet another photo of Hotel Continental, where Graham Greene of The Quiet American (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) fame stayed.
