Spin city in Vietnam This picture is a head-spinner and a head-turner in the way it captures the night life of Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Louis Morneau of Santa Monica had read a lot about the historic Hotel Rex in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) and was intrigued enough to pay a visit to its roof-top bar, which was once a hangout of for Vietnam War-era reporters, while he was on a 14-day tour of Vietnam in December 2006. Outside, he was struck by the contrast between the old hotel and the new Vietnam. I turned off the flash, Morneau said. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 did all the work. I just made sure to stand still.
