While Hanoi is usually considered the ideal place to explore the historical side of Vietnam, the vibrant city of Saigon, known now as Ho Chi Minh City, may surprise many who enjoy delving back into the past.

A photo exhibition featuring the old Saigon themed Sai Gon Vi Vu will be on display at BLANC Café and Art Gallery from July 21 to 24. Famously known as a landing point for migrants over the past three centuries, Vietnam’s southern hub will be displayed with an emphasis on the blends of different cultures over time.

In order to relive the most authentic memories of Saigon, visitors will have the chance to taste popular street food, listen to old hit songs that used to rock the city, watch new documentaries of Saigon’s Gentlemen, and talk with original Saigoneers whose families have gone through the city's ups and downs.
