Night Moves in District 1 in Saigon, Vietnam

Saigon’s District 1 is a labyrinth of intriguing warrens where everyone lives their lives out in the open. At night one can sit at a small bar and watch as life carries on at a breakneck speed around you…

Sitting in the Ba Ba Bar, watching the night life of Saigon flash by…
