These are lights on the way from Thu Thiem bridge to Dong Tay boulevard. The whole project is going to finish within a few months.

Thủ Thiêm is a new site of Saigon, along with Phu My Hung, it is expected to be a future satellite residential area. Located in the bank of Saigon river, opposite to district 1, authorities claim to run on several projects such as Dong Tay boulevard (East West boulevard) goes under Saigon river, Thu Thiem 2 bridge, Saigon 2 bridge and stuffs like that to totally change the at the moment swamp.

Although there are challenges, really big challenges related to flood, security, slum clearance,… but it’s seem like nothing is going to stop we Saigonese.
