If I like something about Saigon is how it is decorated during Lunar New Year. I might say that Saigon is spectacular!
However, this year (2014) I didn’t find it that spectacular. I think the decoration and stile chosen isn’t that good as other years.
And, as usually, there were lots of people who wanted to take photo. It was really hard to frame a photo without having someone in the background.
Many parts of the city are well decorated during Lunar New Year but if you are a tourist then you will want to see the down town.
