Over 100 years ago, French colonists attempted to turn Saigon – a wild land into the 'Pearl of the Far East' as oppose to Paris being 'Pearl of the Far West' or , a strategy targeted to compete with English colonies. No sooner had the French colonists occupied Southern part of Vietnam than they launched the construction of Saigon. Even though the city is currently known as Ho Chi Minh City, many Saigonese still proudly call their city Saigon, or better yet 'Pearl of the Far East'.
