Our Review of Vietnam’s Only 6 Star Hotel: The Reverie Saigon

Situated at the very center of District 1 – Ho Chi Minh’s cultural and commercial heart – The Reverie Saigon is just a short walk from the best landmarks in the city. From the French colonial Opera House and the neo-classical Post Office to the Ho Chi Minh Museum the Reunification Palace, you won’t ever be bored at the Reverie Saigon.

Inside Style

As for scenery, the hotel sits upon a picturesque, tree-lined boulevard called Nguyen Hue (this translates as “very alive at night”) and is surrounded by brasseries, art galleries and chic boutiques. As for the hotel itself, it sits at the very top of Times Square Tower, the 3rd tallest building in Ho Chi Minh city and the 5th tallest in Vietnam. Similar to the more famous Times Square in New York City, the tower projects a dazzling display of light into the streets.

On the inside, however, the hotel gives you a visual experience like no other. It’s extravagant and bold design is like an architectural fantasy in which Liberace meets Versace, filled with decorative opulence and luxury furniture. There are huge sparkly mirrors, there are mosaics on almost every inch of the ceiling. There’s so much marble inside that one has to wonder there is any still left in Italy.

All of this, of course, results in a very hefty price tag, regardless of how short a stay you might be having. However, if you’re in Vietnam and played the lottery recently, then visit xosovui for xsmt results and if you’re lucky you might win enough for a weeks stay. If not, you better start saving as it can cost up to $400 per night at this luxury hotel.

If you’re looking for a new vacation destination, then look no further. Full of beautiful locations, great food and unbelievable prices, it’s no surprise that so many people have been choosing to travel to Vietnam for their next vacation.

Decorate Your Own Lantern at Hoi An

Part of the Vietnamese New Year celebration, each year Hoi An is transformed into a colourful masterpiece. For a full week, one particular road becomes the home for an unbelievable number of lanterns. Tourists are also encouraged to design and release their own beautiful lanterns. It’s probably the closest you’ll come to recreating that scene from Tangled.

Visit the Cao Dai Temple

Vietnamese churches are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before and this one is no exception. Filled floor to ceiling with beautiful colors and surprising artwork. This temple is home to one of the most interesting religions, Caodaism, a combination of a surprising amount of other religions you may not suspect. It’s worth a Google. Prayers can take place up to 4 times a day. To help you keep an eye on your timings, why not check out these watches from galle, a popular Vietnamese watch seller to make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to witness one of these sermons for yourself.

Cross a Bridge Held Up by the Gods Themselves

An absolute marvel in engineering, this bridge towers an eye-watering height above the beautiful Ba Nang province. But it isn’t the bridge itself that has made this attraction one of the most popular destinations in Vietnam. The bridge is seemingly ‘held up’ by a pair of god-like hands carved entirely from stone. An absolute must for your Instagram.

 

5 Ways to Spice up your Group Holiday

Going on holiday with your friends is always either the best time of your life or a complete and utter disaster. There is rarely a nice in between, as sometimes people fight over what they want to do or where they want to go. If you’re planning a group holiday and trying to think of some fail-safe activities to do to keep everybody in the group happy, this list may just have some ideas that you’re interested in.

Make a bucket list

Each person in the group could come up with an idea or activity that they want to do whilst on the holiday. This will give you a set plan for what to do as well as letting every person in the group pick one thing they would like to do. This way things stay fun whilst keeping everybody happy.

Create an activity bingo sheet

Like the first idea, if everyone creates their own bingo sheet filled with different events or incidents, for example, whether someone will fall over or spend too much money. Then as the holiday goes on you can check off the things that do happen and if anyone correctly predicts a line, they can win a prize.

Get matching outfits

This idea may be a bit embarrassing but it’s always a laugh to match with your friends. You could try wearing matching t-shirts or you could buy some of these personalized wristbands. This idea is perfect if one of you has a bad habit of wandering off on your own, as if this happens at least you’re all easily identified.

Explore

Whilst it can be very easy and fun to stay within the resort you’ve booked, especially if it is all-inclusive, you never know what kind of sites and opportunities you and your friends are missing out on. Rent a car and go out for drives, find quiet beaches or other hidden treasures, or book a tour and learn more about the area. Group holidays don’t have to completely revolve around alcohol!

Get a taste of new cultures

Any country you travel to is likely to have their own unique culture, you and your friends should try to push yourself to try new foods that you wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to try. If that means you have to dare your friends to try snails in France, it’ll definitely be a fun experience.

The Essential Checklist for Traveling Abroad

There are a lot of things that you need to remember to do and sort out before traveling abroad. If you forget to bring or do something important, it could cause a lot of problems for you when traveling or once you arrive in your destination country. That’s why it’s a good idea to create an essential checklist of everything that you need to do before going and everything that you need to pack. To help you put this together, here is a list of some things you might want to include on your checklist to get you started:

 

Travel Documents – one of the most important things that should be done well in advance of traveling is to ensure that you have all of your travel documents in order. These may include your passport, or a visa if it is needed for the country that you plan on traveling to. Also, checking that you and your travel companions all have up to date health insurance is important. Remember to bring necessary identification that is handier to carry around than a passport, such as your drivers license, as you don’t want to risk bringing your passport with you everywhere as it might get lost.

 

Travel aids – having everything that you might need if you run into trouble whilst traveling is also important. These can be maps or language and a travel guide as if you get lost and don’t know the language of the country you are visiting you may need the aid of a translation book to help you.

 

Banking – knowing exactly how you are going to pay for everything and whether you will have enough money during the trip is very important. If you aren’t sure how to handle your banking while abroad, or whether or not it’s a good idea to bring your regular debit or credit card, Revolut is a great option for you, reviews for which can be found at Plutuspocket if you want to do your own research.

 

Equipment and appliances – something that you likely aren’t going to forget to bring but should have a spot on your checklist anyway is your mobile phone and charger. Also, have a camera, memory card and charger are handy for saving memories and capturing special moments of your holiday. Other things to remember are plug adaptors if the country you are going to has different plug sockets and also headphones to keep you occupied on the trip.

 

The basics – lastly, include a section on your checklist to remind you to pack all the necessary clothes and toiletries. Do you have enough pairs of underwear and socks? It is also easy to forget to pack pajamas or enough suitable pairs of shoes. Travel-sized toothbrushes, shampoos, and soaps are also important in case the place you are staying in doesn’t provide them. It might also be a good idea to have a medicine bag, will all medications that are needed, as well as any other health-related things that might be useful.
