Today Saigon is the epicenter of a renaissance and former visitors are sometimes in for a shock. Over the last decade, this new yet old face town has shed little by little its colonial image and shows off its playful, edgy, and sophisticated sides to emerge in a vibrant urban hub. Today, as a testament to the city’s new cool, top hotels, restaurants, shopping centers are multiplying in number but how to forget the beauty of old pagodas, colonial mansions, and the memories of afternoons at Ben Thanh Market, jammed packed with people deeply engaged in iconic conversation?
Art of Reinvention and TOONG coworking space (Oxygen) propose in HCMC from july 22-28 ‘Reinvent Saigon’ for a series of exhibitions, talks, meeting, and workshops to discover Saigon’s past and the city’s bygone eras of its collective culture to better approach its future.
