[Photos] Nostalgic Images of Daily Life in Old Saigon


During the first half of the 20th century, Saigon earned a reputation as the Paris of the East. With its wide, tree-lined boulevards and grand colonial buildings – not to mention a significantly smaller population – the southern hub was the talk of not only Vietnam but all of Southeast Asia.

You'll find some familiar sights in the following series of photos, courtesy of Flickr master manhhai, including Ben Thanh Market and the grand intersection of Le Loi and Dong Khoi, Binh Thanh District's Thi Nghe Market and the streetcars running along Tran Hung Dao.
