Saigon’s not only famous for its modern skyscrapers and hustle scenes, but also its hidden gems.
There is a secret that not everyone knows, one that contributes to Saigon’s charm is the old apartments, in which the memories of a nostalgic Saigon are kept. To most Saigoneers, these old apartments were their childhood playground. It’s no exaggeration to say that only old apartments could describe the real life of Saigoneer, such as the little coffee shops, the bustling sound of neighbors every morning, and the warming smell of wooden stoves from the street food eatery. Nguyen Thien Thuat, Hao Sy Phuong, or Nguyen Hue are the best answers to the question “Where we can find the true culture of Saigon?”
