Saigon Vietnam
Home to palaces and pagodas, tombs and temples, historical and cultural heritage, vacation to Vietnam is as much for the adventurer as it is for the holiday tourist. Travel down the Mekong River or head for Sapa or Dalat in Vietnam.

Vietnam,the colorful land of the bountiful, is on the eastern side of Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. Shaped like an elongated 'S' Vietnam is roughly the size of Italy or New Mexico in the US. Vietnam boasts of an idyllic landscape made more dramatic with its scenic coastlines. The colors of this land are vivid with exotic fauna and flora that are resplendent in their glory.


Here is a land where soaring mountains join hands with extensively harvested rice fields. Peasant women in conical hats tend to the fields with children joy riding on buffaloes jutting into myriad country paths.


Vacation Vietnam

Vietnam should be an ideal travel destination for those yearning to indulge in captivating natural beauty in tranquil village setting. Vietnam makes for an interesting vacation spot, with dense rainforests, fine beaches and delicious cuisine. With its mysterious caves, sinuous rivers and heavenly waterfalls, and stunning rock formations, Vietnam hosts a cultural and historical feast to the curious tourist.


Saigon Vietnam

This city of Ho Chi Minh is the South Capital of Vietnam. Founded in the 18th century by Vietnamese refugees migrating southward to escape the civil war in the north, Ho Chi Minh City was named Saigon in the early 19th century by the French conquerors. The Chinese translation of the word Saigon is 'western palace'.


This big and chaotic metropolis was a colonial center with its broad promenades and squares. French influence can be felt on the buildings. Temples and pagodas can be found amidst popular markets abundant with food specialties.


In the center of the city is the famous road in the country known as Rue Catinat to the French and later as Tu Do or Freedom Street during the Vietnam War. The road stretches to the Sai Gon River.


Ho Chi Minh is the major producer of processed foods such as rice, coffee, frozen shrimp. Paper goods, glass, plastic and textiles, machinery, chemical and building materials are also produced here.


This metro houses two major universities namely, Ho Chi Minh University and the Thang Lang College. A number of museums, a large zoo, sports facilities and clubs are found in this place. Broad lined boulevards with offices and residences in French colonial style, ethnic population and typical Chinatowns, narrow streets selling A to Z -from textiles, furniture and modern appliances, Saigon has it all.


Chiffon ruffle dress

Ruffle dresses come in varied fabrics with different finishes such as cotton, knitted, organza, chiffon and silk. But if you want to look dressy, there is nothing quite like a chiffon ruffle dress or silk ruffle dress. Chiffon dress has been a favorite pick for its lightweight feel and comfort.


Chiffon ruffle dress can be made with pure silk chiffon or polyester version of chiffon. Silk ruffle dress drapes well. Of course silk ruffle dresses are heavy on your pocket and need extra care and maintenance. Ruffle dress made of polyester version of chiffon are cool, chic and perfect for a trendy getaway. They are quite affordable and easier to care for.


How to wear a ruffle dress?


  • Ruffles play with your size and shape. They add volume and fullness to the part where they are added. Hence it is extremely important to understand your body type before picking up a ruffle dress. Ruffle top is a good choice if you are small busted as it adds fullness. But avoid the ruffle top if you are heavy busted. If you still prefer to wear ruffle blouse, place the ruffles vertically on a straight line dividing your top into two halves. This style provides narrow and leaner look.

  • Same goes with ruffled bottom too. If you are heavily built at the bottom, ruffle skirt will only make you appear more bulky. But those with narrow hips and long legs can choose a skirt with many frills. Heavily ruffled bottom goes well with simple top.

  • Ruffles surely add a dash of drama, but when overdone, you may end up looking over the top. Ruffled top or bottom, streamline the other half by wearing straight cut and well fitted clothes. When you choose a dress that has ruffles all over, stick to knee length rather than the full length.

  • While wearing a ruffle dress, keep your accessories to minimum. Let the ruffles steal the show.
