Experience Saigon Like A True Saigonese Youth

#1: Where to go for the good Photoshoot (Part 1)

Generation Z is considered digital natives due to the growing rate of everything going virtual and the world before smartphones is considered a strange imagination to them. To this generation of influencers, a picture needs to be perfect and ready to be uploaded on any social media platform to display their personality and uniqueness. 

This emphasis on having an aesthetically pleasing feed on social media increases the need for equally aesthetic places. In this article, our local companions have introduced us to these popular places among youths in Saigon. These locations are widely known for their captivating backgrounds and aesthetic pleasure in a picture.

An ordinary bus station? Think not! To every youth in Saigon, ordinary things can become extraordinary through the lens of the camera. Under the blue sky of the city, amidst the skyscrapers and towering buildings, the bus station on Ham Nghi street is frequented by young people coming to take aesthetic pictures.
