The War Remnants Museum is a sometimes confronting and disturbing experience housing harrowing displays from what the Vietnamese call “the American War.” It may not be cheerful viewing but it is one of the most popular museums in Vietnam, attracting approximately half a million visitors every year.
Established in September 1975 (five months after the last American troops left), it is home to U.S. armored vehicles, aircraft, infantry weapons and bombs, including a giant “daisy cutter,” as well as controversial images detailing the brutality of war. Not to be missed is Requiem, a homage to the photojournalists who lost their lives covering both sides of the conflict.
My second home!
I know this is a bit late, but rather late than sorry!
When I travel I always make sure, that there is a bit of luxury - not too much and not to pricey. I found the perfect combination here.
Before my stay, I emailed the hotel to have my breakfast ready and then make sure I had a massage appointment right after. After 36 hours of travelling and arriving in the early morning I haven’t ate proper for nearly 10 hours. The staff was so helpful and made surr everything was ready as soon as I arrived.
Wonderful 3 night stay - boutique hotel
This is a lovely boutique hotel with a lovely rooftop pool and view of the Saigon river. The staff are friendly and always willing to help . Breakfast is a mix of continental and traditional Vietnamese. Complementary Afternoon coffee and cake is served in the afternoon which is nice a relaxing ... the coffee is very tasty , best we had so far ! The rooms are comfy with jacuzzi baths in each . Sundowners and evening drinks is lovely from the rooftop ... the mai tai cocktails are worth trying ! Thanks to all the staff for a wonderful stay . Would certainly recommend / return again
