Photographer's Note

This 'upside down' reflection was taken in Saigon but I am not sure exactly where. It was a large water feature where students and other people seemed to relax perhaps finding it cooler there.

Saigon is officially called Ho Chi Minh City but not by the local residents. Although it is Vietnam's largest city and the centre for commerce, it is Hanoi that is the administrative capital. Its history is complicated and much of its character stems from when it was a French colony. It was designated the capital of the Republic of South Vietnam in 1955 and later became the centre of the American war effort. Two years after the American troops withdrew in 1973 it became communist controlled and renamed Ho Chi Minh City. In more recent years it became a bustling and expanding city with much construction work with business and tourism growth.
