Seven Heavens in Saigon
Whether I’m at the beach or in the city, sunset is by far one of my favorite times of day. There are few better things in life than taking the time to enjoy a cool cocktail while watching the sun set over a sultry city skyline or glimmering ocean. A city that’s slowly evolving, Saigon is still a quaint mix of old-school establishments like Rooftop Garden at Rex Hotel which came to prominence as a watering hole for journos and US Military officers during the Vietnam war, mixed with sexy new places like the uber-cool ‘dress to impress’ bars like ‘Chill’. As someone who lived and worked in Vietnam for 13 years, I’m not ashamed to admit I’ve tried a fair few of the drinking establishments in Saigon. So, if you’re headed to Vietnam and would like the views of an ‘insider’, you can check out my latest blog to see the best of the well-know rooftop bars (as well as some of the lesser-known ones) and my tips for where to go for that heavenly sunset drink in HCMC.
