A couple of views from AB Tower rooftop bar. I think it is an absolute must-see place for those who are visiting Saigon. The views are excellent and the bar is very cool

This thread is truly interesting. Thank you very much for sharing!

Anyways, the city reminds me a lot Bangkok, especially the streetscene.

Saigon does indeed share some aspects with Bangkok but generally I would describe those cities as having very different urban experiences. Saigon feels more tidy, aesthetic and better planned.

Bangkok, on the other hand has better transport infrastructure (expressways, urban rail, airport). However Saigon will probably catch up a few years later given that it's undertaking some large-scale transport projects.

It has to be said that Saigon looks much more beautiful on the street level as well as more tidy and and visually appealing in a traditional way. But Bangkok has more than enough other advantages which make it one of the most incredible places on earth.

There is a BK in the airport (didn't see any in the city)

Eating and drinking are on the 2nd floor. There is a free wi-fi too which makes it a good place to have some rest and check emails and SSC

The Airport is actually very close to the central part of the city. In fact it is pretty much walking distance

The End

This was it from Saigon. I must say I really enjoyed the city and will certainly be back at some point. Thank you very much all who were interested and posted a comment. Much appreciated!

The airport is nice. Perhaps not Singapore or Hong Kong but a modern, convenient and good airport.
