Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia - - CONTRIBUTORS - WRITER “Cross the Bridge”

Since his ini­tial trip to the Saigon sub­urb 11 years ago, Stokes was in­spired by how the dis­trict has ma­tured. “I love how Thao Dien has be­come a much more di­verse neigh­bor­hood in such a short space of time with peo­ple of all ages and na­tion­al­i­ties now hang­ing out to­gether in a host of eclec­tic spa­ces.” De­spite new spots con­tin­u­ally emerg­ing, Stokes says the re­cent ex­pan­sion of Soma Art Café is a game-changer: “They can now ac­com­mo­date live mu­sic shows and var­i­ous dance events in the evening. And from what I’ve heard there’s much more to come.” In­sta­gram: connla_s­tokes_ saigon.
