Stayed in Jin Mao when we were in Shanghai. 65th floor or something stupid. The atrium in the centre of the hotel is a bit like Cloud City in the "Empire Strikes Back" where Luke falls after the Light Sabre fight with Dad. Can't find my photo of it.

At the time (mid-noughties) it was the world's 4th tallest yet only has 88 floors which isn't much considering the top third is a hotel.

Don't think of beach resorts when someone says 'Vietnam'

3 nights in Nha Trang next year, should be good (:

A friend and I are travelling up the coast of Vietnam at the moment and Nha Trang has been my favorite stop so far. Seemed like a relatively chilled out place to stop and take a breather by some nice beaches. I'll be returning
