    Great work! I can’t wait until some of these projects are done. And when the bodies of water in Saigon actually become blue….

    one step at a time, right?

  18. Hi:

    This is an excellent website to see the progress of all construction projects in HCM City..

    It would be nice to see what is happening to the Estella project built by Keppel Land of Singapore and Tien Phuoc of VN.

    Keep it up!

  26. Hey, just came across this site as a link on a friend’s blog. I’ve actually been thinking about doing something like this on my own blog. I live in Saigon and within the next week I’m going to start documenting the many construction sites I pass daily. Since you’re not currently in the city, would you have any interest in getting some new pictures?

  27. Hi

    Just wondered if anyone reading the blog could help me. I graduated in construction management from the UK a year ago, previously I worked on a year placement in Dubai on 2 major projects, I’m now looking to develop my career in the construction industry within Vietnam and would be very interested if anyone could point me in the right direction of employment opportunities. I’m originally from the UK now living in Thailand temporary but looking to relocate to Vietnam (Saigon) asap.

    Thank you for your help in advance.
