4 best things to do at night in Ho Chi Minh City,Vietnam.


Ho Chi Minh City (former Saigon) is very vibrant during day and night.You can spend the whole day exploring every corner and the most of the night enjoying delicious food and gorgeous cocktails.That's exactly why i fell in love with it!The only thing i could be sorry for,is that i didn't have two more nights..
There are many restaurants and bars that offer great food,drinks and smashing views of the city.
Ok, HCMC is not actually listed among the cities with the most recognizable skylines in the world,but still  displays a splendid scenery,that will definitely satisfy you!
So,four best things to do at night,four places "not to be missed",
here is the list:

1.SHRI RESTAURANT&LOUNGE.


 Located in the heart of HCMC,on the 23rd floor of Centec Tower Building,Shri Restaurant&Lounge is not at the top,but submits marvelous views of the city.
The concept:An open air,beautiful terrace surrounded by the fascinating cityscape,European cuisine that successfully combines with Asian flavours,food of great quality made by fresh ingredients,a finest selection of wines and a long list of tasteful cocktails.
All these,together with the friendly ambiance and the very good service,provided by a well trained staff,
make Shri the perfect choice for a night in Saigon.


2.CHILL SKYBAR.
Chill Sky Bar is the most fancy bar in Ho Chi Minh City.Located on the 27th floor of AB Tower Building,
it's the ideal spot to enjoy a cocktail while overlooking the stunning nightscape.Chic and glamorous,it is the leading night life venue in Saigon,as it frequently organizes big events and hosts famous DJ sets.It is the biggest night attraction for stylish Vietnamese and luxury travelers.
Chill Sky Bar has the best-several times awarded-bar tenders in the city,so,you should expect the best prepaid cocktails and an excellent service.
Something that has to be mentioned:There is a strict dress code(no shorts,no flip flops).


3.BITEXCO FINANCIAL TOWER.
Situated in the city center,Bitexco Financial Tower is the tallest building in HCMC and the second tallest in Vietnam.Go to level 52,where EON Heli Bar is located.This bar offers breathtaking views of the city's sparkling skyline.Enjoy a beer or a glass of wine,admire the lightened boulevards that cross the river,have fun with loud hip hop and funk.EON Heli Bar is a good option for sunset drinks as well,especially on weekdays.
It is a hot spot for Saigon's ex-pats that head there for "after work" drinks.
One thing that you should keep in mind is that the access to the bar is a little complicated,until you find the elevator.However,the staff on the ground floor is very helpful and kind.They will show you the way with a big smile on their face.



4.MAY RESTAURANT.

Housed in an ideally decorated French Colonial Villa at 3/5 Hoang Sa,Ward Dakao,District 1,this restaurant introduces traditional Vietnamese Cuisine in the best way.The large variety of dishes,all homely cooked with carefully selected ingredients,the satisfying selection of both alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks,the friendly atmosphere and the reasonable prices rank it among the best restaurants in HCMC.
Just reserve a table and let a wonderful adventure through flavours,smells and culture begin.If food is your best friend,much better.In the end you will find yourself more than delighted.
