In Sai Gon, there are not only two seasons (raining season and dry season) but also the autumn. When the flame trees are at the end of flowering season, the sound of cicada are off in the streets, the sky in Sai Gon looks clearly blue with the light sunshine gleaming under the rows of trees with falling leaves.
