Saigoneer Podcast: One Thing We Would Change About Saigon & Preserving Architectural Heritage

The latest Saigoneer Podcast episode is out now!

On this week's show, we begin (1:10) by discussing Saigon's disappearing architectural heritage. Much has been written about the city's failure to preserve its historic buildings, particularly those from the colonial era, but at times local voices have been left out of that discourse. Who should preservation serve, and is every historic building worth saving?

Then (15:09), we share the one thing each of us would change about our beloved Saigon if given the chance to do so.

As always, we end with Bánh Mì Banter (28:46).
