Christmas will be coming in a about one more week. However, people in Ho Chi Minh city seem to be ready to welcome Christmas. Riding along all streets in center of Ho Chi Minh city, we feel the atmosphere of a wonderful Christmas! People decorate their shops, theirs restaurants with light, pine trees and Santa Clause. This is a picture of Saigon Trade Center on Nguyen Hue street, Ben Nghe ward, HCMC:
Many people from other districts such as district 2, Thu Duc district rush to the center of Ho Chi Minh to take photos and enjoy the atmosphere of Christmas. Below is a picture of Nguyen Hue street which is covered by “artificial” lotus petals. This design make you feel as if you are walking along a huge lotus field instead of a noisy street in Saigon.
All shops want to be more splendid with lights:
Trees along streets are also decorated with light:
It is advised to walk instead of riding motor cycle or cars for two reasons: You cannot ride because there are so many people visiting the center of HCMC; and the second reason is you will miss impressive moments when you ride.
And here is a picture taken when we get out of center Saigon.
Christmas is coming to town so do not miss you chance to enjoy Christmas in Saigon! We are waiting for you!
