Merry Christmas from Asia


Recently in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh city for my first time there in December. Pleased to see the creativity of the season celebrations in this country.

Christmas is always associated with carousel in Asia. But this is only decorative. There’s also a tiny skating ring – highly popular.


This little bubble room has quite a queue for taking photographs.

District 1 has street lighting and decorations. Shops play Christmas songs celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. What a Christmas mood. Young people are taking to the streets with huge professional cameras and lenses.

Ho Chi Minh city is truly vibrant like I’ve not seen before.
