There has been a (to us) surprising amount of confusion about the relationship between The New Hanoian and So Saigon. Many people have no idea that they are part of the same organization. From time to time we get questions like “is there a site like TNH for Saigon?” Well yes, yes there is. It’s linked from the little drop down to the left of the logo.
Not surprisingly, given how small the indicator is (think Flash “escape the room” game), most people were unable to locate it.
We just made it easier for you to locate good local info on many cities in Vietnam. Simply mouse over the city name in the page header and you’ll see a menu of our two Vietnam sites with their associated cities. Basically, from Hoi An North it’s The New Hanoian. Points South are So Saigon. Same great taste in a different color.
Some cities are better-served than others. Hanoi, Saigon, Sapa and Danang have quite a bit of content. We’re relying on you as you move about the country to add new Spots that you think others should know about.
For those of you with iPhones, adding Spots just got easier with our new iPhone apps Hanoi City Companion and Saigon City Companion. See the about section for more details, or visit the iTunes App Store / Android Marketplace.
