Whether you call it Saigon or Ho Chi Minh City, you’ll find no fault with its offerings.

SEE Take a cultural afternoon with a twist. Escape the tourist spots for quiet contemplation at Gallerie Quynh. In addition to working with artists based in Vietnam, the gallery also exhibits the work of artists from around the world and supports education through talks, lectures and publications.

DO Ride on a vintage scooter to see the city and beyond with Vietnam Vespa Adventures. There are guided city tours and multi-day trips outside for you to immerse Vietnam hospitality like never before. It’s an exhilarated ride on the lean Vespa machine!

SHOP Part cafe, part boutique, part gallery, L’Usine is a great spot for coffee, a light meal, and getting the pulse of groovy Saigon. Here’s where you can pick up gifts and knick knacks with a contemporary Vietnamese feel. It stocks everything from funky homewares to whimsical vintage bikes.

STAY Combining French flair with fresh ideas, Hotel Alcove is boutique-chic at its best. French-styles tiles swirls in black florals with floor-to-ceiling library bookcases lure guests to explore more. And the beds get the best comments for providing the best slumber. It’s a hidden jewel nearer to the airport, but after a day’s outing, little touches like fresh coffee/tea brought to your door is a warm touch.

Royal Brunei Airlines flies Ho Chi Minh City 4x weekly.
