Saigon Saigon Bar @ Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

HCMC Part VIII: This entry wraps up our Ho Chi Minh City series. It's been fun.
Caravelle Hotel's open-air rooftop terrace is wonderfully atmospheric, with an old-world charm that extends to its view.

The ninth-floor panorama is beautiful at night, with the Opera House, iconic post office, Notre Dame cathedral and other hotels all clearly in sight.

Good Morning Vietnam (grey goose vodka, lime juice, orange curacao, midori, cranberry juice, sugar) & Miss Saigon (grey goose vodka, rum bacardi, orange juice, cranberry juice).

Pineapple & Pepper Margarita (gold tequila, lime juice, pepper syrup, pineapple puree) & Saigon Breeze (grey goose, grapefruit juice, lime juice, triple sec).

I've run out of things to say, but I still wanna post a few more photos. Heheh.

  1. While you may not be a tea fan you seem to know your alcohol well. :)

  2. michelle: to know alcohol is to love it! (or is it the other way around?) :D

  3. what happen to the street food? oh wait, thats not your style hehe.

  4. Hmmph. I'm reading this from Singapore and have to concur even the look and feel of this city blows KL out of the water. We need a complete overhaul! We need a fresh spurt of energy and Botox!

  5. Run out of things to say? That's a first. :-)

    Have enjoyed your HCMC series tremendously.

  6. pictures tell a thousand words :P

  7. the view is indeed pretty and I like the glasses that they used for the Good Morning Vietnam cocktail. Funny that the cocktail is usually drank at night! lol

  8. Lovely photos, Sean!
    And i thot HCMC didnt hv much to offer, heh!

  9. joe: yeah, sticking to safe food this time! :D
    min: kl's got sheen, but relatively less soul! (the same could arguably be said for singapore, heheh)
    lemongrass: too exhausted to type! but if u liked the hcmc series, then u'll be reaaaaally impressed by london, paris & lisbon :D
    leo: unfortunately, my pictures aren't very good!
    eiling: i wouldn't mind drinking those cocktails for breakfast!
    pureglutton: thank you! hcmc is OK to visit for two or three days, but anything more than that is overkill! :D
