This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.
I passed through Saigon recently and I noticed when I took a shower after a day of strolling about the water turned filthy. So all that shit is in your lungs too. I lived in Saigon for 3 years and I still have a soft spot for the crazy place and I will continue to visit once a year. But living there? Forget about it.
Saigon is great for a blast of the senses and an overload of noise, people, bars, girls, beers, drugs, pollution, food, music, etc etc or whatever is your thing. So its good in a way. Especially if you live somewhere as quiet as I do. But it wears very thin very fast.
Bottom line : A great place to visit. Not so great to live. (unless you are young)
Now, if there was a Viet sub-forum, I could report HCMC AQI right now is a rather unhealthy 183. And Vung Tau shocker, it's 155 now on AirVisual. (But I don't have the same confidence in the AirVisual numbers. Only one source in VT, it seems.)
