Some very interesting news from ThanhNienNews.com today. The Vietnamese government is thinking about ending the restrictions which forced HCMC restaurants, discos, nightclubs, coffee shops and karaoke bars to close at midnight. This is definitely a positive sign the Vietnamese government is sending to Westerners in particular here in Saigon. Most of the good night clubs close too early for many Western expats and tourists forcing them to visit the lower quality Pham Ngu Lao Backpacker clubs. If this regulation is ended, I can Saigon transitioning to a 24 hour Western city in a relative short time.
In the same article, HCMC officials also asked the Vietnamese government to waive tourist visas for some countries such as Australia, France, Germany and the US as a means to promote tourism in Vietnam. Another positive sign for Vietnam.
Look out China, Vietnam is now becoming a full-grown Tiger…
