Spend a day at the crossroads of vibrancy and culture in Ho Chi Minh City, December 29, 2017, Soul of Vietnam

The first thing you notice when you step into Ho Chi Minh City is its vibrancy. Car horns, vendors calling, the hustle and bustle of the market, and above all, a sea of motorcycles filling the roads. Today, it can be said that this city is truly alive and moving.

Traffic artery, bike flow
Ho Chi Minh City is especially vibrant at sunset. Countless bikes fill every corner of the street. They start heading home, not feeling even the slightest bit tired from the day. These motorbikes decorate the roads of Vietnam’s capital and are an essential means of transportation for citizens. Helmets of various colors and shapes, such as red, blue, and yellow, shine and seem to represent the individuality of the rider.

A symbol of merging cultures
As you look around, the cityscape tells you more than just the amount of traffic. Old French colonial architecture and new skyscrapers coexist, creating a mix of Vietnam’s past and present. Meanwhile, advertising billboards highlight the city’s commercial side and are a symbol of a city that is constantly changing.

Citizens’ daily life, city rhythm
People cycling across the street are a respite in this hectic flow. They deftly weave their way between bikes, moving at a leisurely pace into the sunset. They remind us that even in the fast pace of the city, Vietnam’s traditional way of life is still alive and well.

The heartbeat of the city
Then, when the light turns green, the engine noise increases all at once, and a new wave begins to move. This moment is like the heartbeat of Ho Chi Minh City, a testament to the city’s vitality. It is a moment when you can feel the heartbeat of this city, as if it were a single living thing.

At the end of the day
I will capture this scene on camera and treasure it as a memory of my trip. And as a slice of everyday life in this vibrant city, you’ll feel the raw energy of Ho Chi Minh City every time you look back.

Ho Chi Minh City is more than just a tourist destination. It is a rich tape story woven with the joy of living, the activities of people, and the fusion of cultures. And today I experienced some of that.
