    48 Hours in Ho Chi Minh City

    If ever a city felt as though it’s on the brink of massive transformation, it has to be Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). Cranes dot the skyline and the construction of luxury apartments and shopping malls consumes
    the city.

    Alongside all this change sits the old-world charm for which Saigon, as it’s still called by many, is famous. It makes for an intoxicating blend and a great city break. Here’s how to make the most of 48 hours.

  • What to do and see in Ho Chi Minh City

    What to do and see in Ho Chi Minh City

    Times are a changing in Ho Chi Minh City. Last year, the city welcomed the most luxurious hotel ever built in any Vietnamese city, while a metro system is due to open in 2017, in a bid to ease congestion from the ubiquitous motorbikes locals rely on to get around. There is a pulsating energy about the city, no doubt fuelled by the young population and rising middle-class. Hip cafes, rooftop bars, and designer stores all sit comfortably alongside street stalls, Vietnamese coffeehouses and markets that are part of any quintessential Vietnamese holiday.

  • Honeymooning Hanoi

    Honeymooning Hanoi

     

    Tanya Joslin discovers Hanoi should not be overlooked by couples planning a Vietnam holiday or honeymoon.

    What surprised me the most about Hanoi is just how beautiful it is. A city of treelined boulevards, lakes and ancient architectural gems that remain modern-day reminders of Vietnam's fascinating history. Hanoi experienced the tragedies of many wars including the Chinese, the French, and of course the Vietnam (American) war – and all left their mark on lovely Hanoi.

  • Something's Brewing in Saigon

    Something's Brewing in Saigon

    John Gardner's guide to Saigon's coffee culture. 

    As general manager of a famously historic hotel, I meet numerous guests grappling with the Vietnam they read about and the Vietnam outside our lobby doors. After rowing sampans in the Delta, snacking on spring rolls and ticking off the landmark attractions, they ask, "Is there is anywhere to go to see the 'real' Saigon?" 

    My advice to dedicated culture-seekers is to explore Vietnam through the doors of its coffee houses. Vietnam is a coffee powerhouse and its cafes are often conceptual, intriguing spaces offering a window onto the city's best views, art and architecture and occasionally, into its colourful past.
