Life In SLUM OF SAIGON – SHOCKING Side Of Vietnam🇻🇳

This experience might be kind of unusual, but the total time we spent in less-traveled roads of Ho Chi Minh totally open our eyes to a different side of life that we never saw about Vietnam on the internet. We get the chance to fully observe the difference in lifestyle and conditions of those in the less developed communities, compared to those living in the urban areas.

This video is about the experience that we explore beyond touristy areas of Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) to observe the slum community guided by local Vietnamese and see the boundary between rich and poor here in Vietnam.
Ho Chi Minh City, also known by its former name of Saigon (Vietnamese: Sài Gòn), is the most populous city in Vietnam. Located in southeast Vietnam, the metropolis surrounds the Saigon River. From 1955 to 1975, Saigon was the capital of the Republic of Vietnam, commonly known as South Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh City is the most visited city in Vietnam, with 6.3 million visitors in 2017. Many of the city’s landmarks which are well known to international visitors include the Bến Thành Market, Ho Chi Minh City Hall, Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica of Saigon, Independence Palace and it’s a popular destination to have the day trip to Cu Chi tunnel and Mekong delta.

    That's the vietnam i used to live for about 25 years ago. Tourists will never know this kind of slum to find the real poverty level of people. Thanks for showing the real truth of VN people.

    Hey guys, these Vietnamese girls fooled you with the so-called the slum riverside or they are just stupid girls make drama things up for money.
    They, people from Mekong Delta sell their products on their boat, stop by here and there, they don't be allowed to create new slum on riverside of Cities. 20 years ago government cleared up all huge slum, formed before 1975 makeshift houses on river within a City. Moved them to apartments those located just in city. A lot money spentout on that project. So no more slum, don't be allowed. Just come and go.
    People living in their boat, it's not so strange, weird in Mekong Delta area.

    Another what looks like slum as you called it, location you handed out candy to kids. You know what, that's is millions of dollar <slum> if you call it a slum. Government doesn't have money to pay them for relocating them. They wait for investors.
    Oh, by the way, I want to recommend you the video clip on YouTube < people living in tiny spaces-Honkong world's busiest city.>/BBC, or < squalid living conditions of Hongkong'poor population>/ Journey man Pictures.
