Explore Ho Chi Minh City: The Cafe Apartment

Not your run of the mill attraction in Ho Chi Minh City but trust me, you want to add this on your to-visit list. Just look at the building! It marries the rustic charm of Saigon and feeds the hipster in you!

This is the exterior of the building. See how it comes alive after the sun sets?

It may be tricky to spot the entrance to the lift lobby but have faith and look out for a pathway lined with motorbikes (this photo shows how it looks like from the lift lobby).

There are 2 methods of travelling up: elevator and stairs. Going up and down the stairs is free while taking the lift will cost you 3,000 VND. My strategy was to take the lift all the way up and take slowly make your way down using the stairs. You don’t have to pay if you take the lift down again but trust me, it takes forever to wait for the lift.

Have fun exploring all the cafes from top to bottom and let me end this post with the exterior photo of my favourite cafe.
