The Sacombank head office on Nam kỳ khởi nghĩa road in District 3 is very impresive at night. I have wanted to take this picture for ages and finally got around to it on Sunday night.

Disrict 3 update

District 3 is not standing still, so here is a quick round up of what’s happening at the moment. This is not everything, it’s just a series of images that I have gathered so far this month. Some of the buildings have been up for a while but most are new or under construction.
