When driving past La Bodega on an afternoon or evening you will often see people sat outside on the high chairs enjoying a glass of wine, coffee or a cocktail — it’s the spirit of European café culture in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 2.

The relaxing weekend brunch is now an accepted part of modern dining culture. However, Le Méridien Saigon is taking this to a different level with its Sunday Discovery Brunch. Instead of one restaurant, you get three, with the different tastes of the Latitude 10, Latest Recipe, and Bamboo Chic to sample. And your gastronomic tour lasts for up to four hours.

Our mystery diner gets a taste of North Korea without leaving the safety of District 3.

It’s the summer. It’s hot. So what better way to cool you down than a Vietnamese favourite — coconut ice-cream?

Ice cream is the usual fix at times of high temperatures and the unpleasant stickiness of humid days, but if you’re looking for something a little different, Cafe BingGo (11 Nguyen Dinh Thi, Tay Ho, Hanoi) offers a tasty alternative with its bingsu.

In the very heart of the old quarter is Craft Beer Pub. As you’d imagine, they sell lots of craft beer.

Saigon Saigon Rooftop Bar on the top floor of Caravelle Saigon has been a favourite watering hole of politicians, journalists and soldiers, and has been welcoming people to its rooftop since 1959.
