1. Saigon doesn’t have a specific specialty:

Saigon is a place where culinary specialties from across Vietnam converge. On the street, you can find classic dishes like Phở Hà Nội, bún bò Huế, mỳ Quảng and tasty snacks like bánh tráng trộn, chè khúc bạch and nem chua rán. Just by following a Saigonese, you can enjoy every kind of specialty without leaving the city.

Saigon doesn’t have a specific specialty, but because the Saigonese have created a number of unique foods and drinks. You can drink Cà phê sữa (milk coffee) in every province in Vietnam but only in Saigon can you have an ice blended-coffee flan.

2. Every day is the weekend:

To a Saigonese, every day is the weekend. Because in Sài Gòn night time is the time to relax and hang out. In other cities, people will head home and go to sleep at 10 pm. However, in Saigon, you can hang out until the wee hours of the morning and you won’t be alone! There will be lots of people there with you.
