Savouring Saigon: Saigon Saigon Bar

Saigon Saigon Bar

VietnamTel: + 84-88234 999

This is probably the bar with the best view in the city. The open air bar offers an opportunity for you to sip your cocktail and to take in the view of the city. From here, you can witness the old and the new of the city, the newer skyscrapers bearing the various MNCs names and the older, shorter buildings of history. The live band is nothing much and the comparative expensive drinks that are priced in USD are nothing to shout about, but the ambience and the view makes up for it. Instead of having the cocktails, we had the sorbets they had on the menu. Seeing how we were in a bar, they didn’t just have sorbets, but sorbets with a little alcoholic and so this is what we ordered - twist lemon sorbet with gin and orange sorbet with grand mariner. It was a wonderful frozen nightcap just before we set off on our walk home and curled up and retired for the day.
