Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon)
Metros and Monorails In Vietnam - Tram Phan Tram!*
Once a bastion
of hard core communism, this country's urban areas now look more like
downtown Flushing. Capitalism appears to be alive and well in southeast
Asia. What could not be enforced with blood and steel has
been easily implemented by the Almighty Dollar. Or in this case,
it could be said that the Dong is mightier than the sword.
In just a few years, you'll be on your way to Happy Work with a hot cup of pho on a speeding underground metro. And for those who say no phoking way, the Ho Chi Minh City metro is already under construction.
A metro prefeasability study is also taking place in Danag.
* This genuine Vietnamese saying has nothing to do with trams. It is a toast which literally means "100%. Figuratively, it means drink it all, down the hatch!
