Dear Friends,

As a resident, I can’t help but notice the changes that take place in Saigon every year. There are new buildings being built up or old buildings being torn down. I like documenting these changes. I have taken and saved few photos in my hard drive. Who knows I might put them to good use after ten years.

If there is one thing that makes Saigon very dynamic, that is its beat. This is the music and noise that people and motorbikes make as they pass by static trees at the parks. Watching them is fun but nothing beats capturing Saigon Beats!

The last photowalk I had was August 2011 : 49 Saigon Moments and I want to do it again this Saturday. My plan is for us (this is an invitation) to meet at 6.30 am in District 1 aka ‘downtown Saigon’, go around taking photos of anything that interests us. We’ll have breakfast around 8 then head home at 9. Come and join me! 🙂 This is my email address: It would be fun to meet new faces!

Oh, by the way, you can bring any camera that you have! It does not need to be a DSLR 🙂 I am uber excited! I’ll wait for your email. 🙂
