A riverside location means this Ho Chi Minh City hotel is always popular. It boasts some of the largest rooms in town, with Asian antiques and wooden furniture throughout. Bathrooms are black granite and the river views memorable. Retreat to the large circular pool and feel the hustle of the city melt away.
A resurgent destination for the last couple of decades, the centre still retains its former name of Saigon. Learn about the turbulent past of the city at the excellent War Remnants Museum or take in the exotic carvings at the Emperor Jade Pagoda. The markets and food stalls are well worth checking out.
