Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe Canal prior to the launch of a renovation project last August was infamous for its heavy polluted water and bad smell that caused local people much trouble and unpleasantness. Seven months on, the canal’s environment has been improved remarkably and surrounding area of upgraded Truong Sa and Hoang Sa streets have been turned into an entertainment area for Saigonese. Popular activities are fishing, doing some exercises, swimming and relaxing under the shades of trees. Thanks to the renovation project, people’s health has been much improved and the city has one more beautiful spot on its map.

Here are some photos taken at the site by The Saigon Times Daily’s contributor Cong Thu.

Some teenagers escape the scorching sun by jumping into the water. Swimming was impossible at the canal for a number of years before the renovation project as the water was damaged by garbage and wastewater
