Below are photos recently captured by photographer Dam Van Thao, now living in Ho Chi Minh City, featuring the beauty of Saigon’s central districts from the sky.Saigon at dawn looks fantastic in early morning dew on August 14. Photographer Dam Van Thao said that the foggy season has begun in Da Lat, Pleiku and Sapa. However, if you wake up early, you can experience scenic views of Saigon in fog too. A mysterious and quiet view seen from Thao Dien Ward, District 2 on August 6. A view of high-rise buildings, especially the Landmark 81 tower and Vinhomes Central Park Tan Cang shimmering in clouds and early morning dew, is captured from Binh Thanh District. Another view of Landmark 81 from the sky on July 25. A misty view of Saigon Bridge that connects Binh Thanh District with Thao Dien Ward, District 2. High-rise buildings in Thao Dien Ward look like they are floating in dew. The area near Cat Lai ferry in District 2 is covered by morning fog on August 6. Thao said the Saigon sky changes constantly, one minute the sun shines, the next the rain suddenly comes. It is more sparkling at dawn, dusk and in the night lights. Especially, cloudy days make the city shine in its own way.
