Moreover, Vietnamese cities, Saigon has also kept its French colonial charms. Its energy is kept alive by the local people who have adopted the recent government economic reforms (doi moi). Young and old have been swept up by the reborn free market after years of austerity. Saigon streets are packed with motor scooters, often carrying whole families. The open-air markets, such as the Binh Tay in the Cholon District, attract local shoppers; as well as curious, bargain-seeking tourists.

Coffee plantations, terraced vegetable farms and waterfalls provide awesome photographic opportunities. Small villages of minority people (mon tanyards or hill people) in traditional costumes give travelers a look at mountain life.
