Park Hyatt Saigon
Immaculately uniformed staff welcome you to this elegantly modern hotel, that mixes traditional Vietnamese touches with its contemporary design. Even the entry-level rooms have decorous wooden beds and sumptuous bathrooms. Two restaurants, a health club and outdoor pool complete the amenities.
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.
