24 Hours in Ho Chi Minh

by admin @ Ho Chi Minx

Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon as the locals still call it, is a rising Asian star sprawling across the Mekong delta. The mammoth river meanders past both glitzy new skyscrapers and clusters of low thatched huts, marking this diverse city’s intoxicating mix of old and new worlds. Motorbikes and scooters swarm through the streets of Saigon carrying families of five, portable street kitchens and even wide-screen TVs. The French influence lingers in the tree-lined boulevards and colonial buildings of District...

Propaganda – Review by Ho Chi Minx

by admin @ Ho Chi Minx

Self-proclaimed ‘Vietnamese bistro’, Propaganda, was packed on a rainy Sunday night when we ventured out to try it. Overlooking the park beside the cathedral in District 1, the restaurant is a spacious room with high ceilings, and a pretty terrace at the front if you prefer to sit outside. The walls are plastered with brightly-coloured murals depicting various scenes of harmonious rural Vietnamese life. The decor and the upbeat music make for a fun, friendly and young environment. The punters were mostly foreigners,...

Sunday Lunch at The Deck – Review by Ho Chi Minx

by admin @ Ho Chi Minx

For me, The Deck is a soothing tonic to Saigon’s hot and hectic madness. Nestled on the banks of the Mekong in Thao Dien (District 2), the restaurant and bar serves up a large dose of escapism alongside beautifully presented plates of Asian and Western food on a serene wooden deck jutting out over the river. Sunday lunch in this tranquil spot is fast becoming a crucial part of my Saigon weekend. Saturday evening, on the other hand, is a...
