Saigon is very much alive. Traffic is almost hypnotizing: thousands of scooters weave their way in the streets, like a school of fish.

Four tips:

1) take Uber motor rides. Adrenaline, sightseeing, quick, local and super cheap. You don’t have to negotiate and you don’t even need cash.

2) cafe’s: Propaganda and l’Usine. Also good for (co) working.

3) restaurants: Secret Garden on a rooftop. Hum: trendy vegetarian restaurant.

4) street food!!!! My favorites were Bahn Xeo and Bahn Cuon.
