Drinks with a View: 10 Best Rooftop Bars in Ho Chi Minh City - Independent Travel Cats


Independent Travel Cats

We love to find places that offer good views of a new city and the rooftop bars in Ho Chi Minh City provide not only an excellent opportunity to get a good orientation to the city, but also some delicious cocktails. Ho Chi Minh City, often still referred to as Saigon, is a booming city on the rise—quite literally! You'll see the shorter historical French colonial buildings next to giant sleek glass-and-steel skyscrapers throughout the downtown area making for an interesting city landscape. We discovered that there are essentially two places to look for good rooftop bars in the city: hotels (old and new) and business towers. You have a wide array of choices from historical colonial-era hotels to up-and-coming glitzy nightspots, depending on whether you feel like contemplating the war-era days of Graham Greene or hanging with hipsters in a modern lounge. You can also have your choice of views from sweeping big city views to broad riverfront views to intimate street-level views, and the views change fairly dramatically from day to night. We only had a few days in the city so we couldn't sample all the rooftop bars in Ho Chi Minh City (sad I know), but we did get around to several and we'll also list all the others we considered! Without further ado here is our list of the 10 best rooftop bars in Ho Chi Minh City offering both drinks and great views of the city.
