New Year’s Eve in Vietnam

New Year’s Eve in Ho Chi Minh City was quite the experience. We started the evening with a pizza party and then walked toward the center of District 1, where Heineken was putting on some sort of DJ/laser light show.

This was the scene just outside of the guesthouse. That’s an intersection, not a parking lot. On the left side of the photo you can see the light displays that they put on the street. The white lights were supposed to look like a girl in a flowing ao dai.

The corner of Le Duan Boulevard, one of the major thoroughfares in Ho Chi Minh City.

Liz takes a picture down Le Duan while motorbikes zip past. At the end of the road they have the ao dai light displays and other lights made to look like conical hats.

We made it downtown to the celebration, but the crowds were far too large. After almost getting stuck in the middle of a huge mass of people we got out and made our way home. Here are some pictures from the end of the night when everyone was trying to get back home.
