Bill Saigon - have you ever talked to him?

The old man who was a postcard salesman at Ben Thanh market ( Ho Chi Minh city – Vietnam), has become famous on Youtube since 2007, when an American tourist, Barry Dahl, shot some videos of him and uploaded them on Youtube.

Bill’s real name was Tran Son Hung. I have just heard some information that Bill passed away on August 25, 2008 during his sleep, he had been sick with pneumonia, he just became too weak and died. He was cremated a short time after.

His hand says: "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen nor touched, but are felt in the heart. Good day mate!"
