Petronas Tower in Saigon, Vietnam


Since I get a lot of visitors from Malaysia these days, I decided to post a picture that they may like.  Saigon has it’s very own Petronas Tower in District 1 on Nguyen Van Cu street opposite of District 5.  Petronas is in Vietnam to open it’s own wells outside of Vung Tau.

I am always surprised at how many people I meet from the oil industry here in Vietnam.  In 2006, I met the guys that sold Vietnam it’s first oil rig.  I also have some friends from PetroVietnam, my former student’s father is a director for one of PV’s subsidiaries.  Now I have a friend from Petronas.  Some of you should say I should sell oil then.  🙂  I have tried actually, I got a quota from Azerbaijan of all places.  I just can’t find a buyer, yet…

This is my only photo of Petronas Tower which I took last night.
