I sipped on my cocktail overlooking this fabulous Ho Chi Minh view from the Caravelle's Saigon Saigon Bar. This hotel - and this very rooftop bar - has a fascinating history that I am obsessed with. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ The @caravellesaigon was the first fancy hotel in Saigon, with an elevator, telephones in each room and air conditioning! And at 10 stories high it was a skyscraper back in the day - the tallest building in Saigon. During the Vietnam War the Caravelle was the unofficial media centre for overseas journalists who would all meet up at the bar each evening to discuss the days stories over a few drinks - I would have loved to be there, even if just a fly on the wall. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Some US news networks were based out of the hotel, and the bar has some wonderful pictures on the walls of the Australian ABC-TV crew who worked out of the Caravelle too. The hotel has retained its beautiful heritage charm and staying here I feel a real connection to the city and I want to learn so much more about its past. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ The view is very Parisian don't you think? The French left beautiful architectural legacies all over Asia and Ho Chi Minh City is no exception ???????????? . . . . . . . #hosted #traveltime #traveltheworld #openmyworld #familyfun #escape #besttimes #funtimes #worldschooling #travelfam #travelwithkids #cocoandginger #familytravel #kidstravel #travelkids #holidayswithkids #takemethere #instagood #travelgram #travelbuddy #traveldiary #familyoffduty #mytravelgram #ouradventure #lpkids #travelmum #roamfree #traveltheworld #letsgoeverywhere #olympusinspired #covermore
