PODCASTS

Another Spotify feature is podcasts. This option offers a good alternative to music. For me, it works really well when travelling. It's also a good option for learning more about a particular subject while working. Find inspiration or gain skills for free without any effort, all the classic subjects are covered, whether they be sports, arts, music or politics.

OUR WHATZ'HAT PLAYLIST

Here at Whatz'hat, we've created a playlist called "Saigon Vibes which is updated from time to time by one of us. Given that we have different nationalities, ages and, of course, musical tastes, the playlist will cover a wide range of genres.

It was my turn to kick things off, so I've chosen 20 tracks that I listened to a lot during my time in Saigon. You can expect instrumental and experimental hip hop or more danceable French and techno tracks. They remind me of the chaos of scooter traffic or one of the many secret cafés with their little garden hidden in the back yard.
