A city icon

One of the most upscale bars in Ho Chi Minh – with prices to match – the nostalgically named Saigon Saigon offers show-stopping views of the city skyscrapers. Popular as the sun sets, it is also the perfect place to settle for the evening, with its open-air balcony and unique panoramas.
