The pollution can't be that high, can it? They seem to have moderate air quality most of the time. Anyone ever live in Saigon? Can you share your experience?

This is a bit inaccurate. Here are a few things to change:
1. Traffic: Roads are congested most times of the day. Public transport is almost non existent.
2. Climate: Very hot and humid
3. Healthcare: Awful.

Traffic in HCMC is notoriously terrible. Roads are congested most of the time and the primary means of transport is by motorbike. Which means you'll be soaking wet and likely walking your bike through flooded streets during the rainy seasons. The metro may change this when it opens.

The commute is much quicker than in Bangkok, Jakarta, Manila or even Yangon. I take Grab Car and arrive at work in another area of the city within 15 minutes (Binh Thanh to District 3) by motorbike it would be even faster.
