THE DESTINATION

IMG_20150912_181151

From the finest of hotels to the cheapest of guesthouses, the classiest of restaurants to the tastiest of street stalls, the choicest of boutiques to the scrum of the markets, Saigon is a city of energy and discovery. Wander through alleys to incense-infused temples before negotiating chic designer malls beneath sleek 21st-century skyscrapers. The hosts of the past live on in buildings that one generation ago witnessed a city in turmoil, but now the real beauty of the former Saigon’s urban collage is the seamless blending of these two worlds into one exciting mass.
