Turn a potentially daunting city tour of chaotic Saigon into a fun fling with motoring nostalgia.

It feels like flying business class of old, before the introduction of flat beds and the price is terrific value.

Ho Chi Minh City is Vietnam's most populous and one of south-east Asia's fastest-growing cities.
If you're in the mood for a little mystery the next time you visit Vietnam, this hotel will pique your curiosity.
Even if you've been to south-east Asia before, it feels different here.
