April, 1975 marked of the end of the Vietnam War, and one of the most iconic images which symbolized that historic event was Hugh Van Es’ photograph of a helicopter on a rooftop where a scores of Vietnamese were scrambling for their lives for freedom as the country fell to the communists.

44 years later, I visit that exact location and shed light on the misunderstanding behind the image.

Networking Events: Ho Chi Minh City

[et_pb_section admin_label=”section”] [et_pb_row admin_label=”row”] [et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text”]

One of the greatest attributes I love in Saigon is the ample networking opportunities. I attend several a week—AusCham, AmCham, InterNations—which helps me expand my professional network and forces me to get out and socĀ ialize.

In this particular event, I join the AusCham (Australian Chamber of Commerce-Vietnam) for their monthly networking event.
