Housed in a neo-classical structure built in 1885, the Ho Chi Minh City Museum presents an informative exhibition on the history of the city comprising of photographs, artefacts and memorabilia.

A short stroll away is the Reunification Palace. Having been the site where northern Vietnamese troops captured the city on 30 April 1975, marking the fall of Saigon, it is one of the most historically significant locations in Vietnam.

Just down the street from the hotel is the trio of picturesque landmarks that is the neo-Romanesque Notre Dame Cathedral, the neo-classical Central Post Office just opposite, and the French colonial Opera House built in 1897.

And from The Reverie Saigon’s sky-high perch, the city’s monument Nguyen Hue Boulevard can be seen stretching from the riverfront to the exquisite 1908-built Hôtel de Ville – now the People’s Committee Building.

If ever there were a destination primed for coffee enthusiasts (outside of Italy, that is), it would be Vietnam.

As one of the world’s largest exporters of coffee beans, it’s no surprise that Saigon’s coffee culture is one of its increasingly popular attractions.

A wide array of artisanal coffee houses are located nearby The Reverie Saigon, but one of our favourites would have to be The Workshop. Occupying a second floor loft on Ngo Duc Ke Street, just around the corner from us, it’s home to some award-winning baristas who are as delightful to interact with as they are skilled.

Grab a seat at the counter and order a ‘pour-over’ or an ‘immersion’, and then sit back and enjoy the show.

And for chocolate lovers, Vietnam’s first artisan chocolatiers just opened Maison Marou Saigon in May 2016 – a gourmet patisserie featuring chocolate made from cacao beans sourced from five different provinces in Vietnam, each of which are on offer, in pure form, in a range of five distinctively flavoured chocolate bars.

In addition, its café serves up delectable pastries and desserts.

Opened in July 2016, Saigon Centre is the newest addition to the city’s luxury scene. The retail outpost showcases 145 shops over seven floors, including the introduction of 58 new brands to Vietnam – including Moschino, Carolina Herrera and DSQUARED2 – as well as the country’s first ever Takashimaya department store.

Also in District 1 is Union Square, home to the Vietnam flagship outlets for the likes of Hermès, Chopard and Dior, and housed in a selfie-worthy, pseudo-colonial building just opposite the iconic People’s Committee Building.

For those desiring more locally designed fashions, Ly Tu Trong Street features a row of boutiques belonging to local brands, from the atelier of Vo Viet Chung, known for his bespoke ao dai (traditional Vietnamese dress) designs, to shops offering more casual and contemporary looks by up-and-coming designers.

And for those who prefer to come home with more lasting keepsakes, premium art galleries abound within walking distance of the hotel, as do high-end lacquerware shops such as Saigon Crafts and the ever-popular Sadec District – manufacturer of locally made ceramic works.

In the contemporary Times Square Building in which The Reverie Saigon is located, are the Vietnam flagship outposts of some of Italy most renowned furnishing design brands. Their showrooms are divine to wander around, and their pieces exquisite.

It’s a can’t-miss, dream destination for aficionados of interior design.
