Travel in Saigon
Raining season – Flood
– I’ve just received a bursting news, the city is gonna hold a street-swimming competition this season!
– What are you talking about!?
– It’s rainy season, streets are going to turn into rivers.
Actually, the news is not that unbelievable although it isn’t true. If you has lived through at least one rainy season in this city, you will know that after the rain, how big rivers are streets turn into. Till now, it’s a great challenge for the government to change that fact, but fact is still fact, Saigon is built up on the ground of a huge swamp. Every year, new flood areas come up and I think it would help if we take a look at flood areas which are left from last year.
