[Photos] Changes to Saigon’s Skyline (2003-2014): Part 2

Due to the popularity of previous articles capturing the physical changes of Saigon’s skyline over the past decade, we’ve managed to cobble together a new set of photos.

This dramatic evolution is illustrated through images by Michael Waibel, editor of the TP. Hồ Chí Minh: MEGA City photo book, from the Caravelle Hotel back in 2003 and from the Sheraton Hotel in 2004. The photos from 2014 were taken by Henning Hilbert, co-editor of the book from the same locations.
