bright floral display was part of the Tet
decorations in Ho Chi Minh City

This bright floral display was part of the Tet (Chinese New Year) decorations in Ho Chi Minh City and celebrates the year of the boar which started in February 2007, so far as the west is concerned. The whole street was closed and this stunning display was laid out for just a few days, complete with cemented in brick walls, a small river with a bridge and paths. Then it was all demolished and no sign of it remained just a couple of days later.

Hotel Continental

The famous old Hotel Continental, dating back to French Colonial occupation of Indochina, when a lot of the street names were French and the city was still known as Saigon. Actually it still gets referred to as Saigon by both the expat's who live there and by a deal of the locals, even the airport code remains as SGN.
