    11:05 “ we don’t feel the pollution at all..” you have got to be kidding me????. The communist Vietnamese government would jump for joy when they hear that???? . I feel bad for the locals who live there and have to endure the polluted air that taking a choke hold on their health , while these tourists will leave after just a few days. ????

    I remember when I was in Saigon back in 2009. I was in the forest with a group of people hearing from a Vietnamese soldier. Talking about the war. While walking we came across a tent with benches and a large television. We then were given tea and ate some type of potato I think it was. Really nice people.

    Actually, the whole district 5 is china town. And it famous place is Binh tay market, a wholesaler market of the city. Many things sell here, from food, to clothing, to counterfeit handbags. Things here are cheaper than ben thanh market. Most vietnamese people go here to buy things because it is cheaper if you buy in bulk. Next to it there is another market that also known for its variety products and famous for chemical, I suddenly forgot the name. But if you go to binh tay market, then you can go to the other one as they are very closed to the other. Both are in district 5.
