Vietnam: Colonial Decay

_MG_6395 - Version 2

Walking around Saigon, it was interesting to see all the old deco-era buildings that have fallen into disuse and decay. The scenes around town were so vibrant and active, yet many of these old buildings looked as if they hadn't been touched in decades.

Some were clearly refurbished and polished up, but walking around Dong Khoi in District 1, many old office and retail spaces sat wide open and served as parking for scooters.
