US Magazine Condé Nast Traveler has introduced a photo collection of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) along with suggestions of things to enjoy in the “sleepless city”.

The photos of 10 interesting destinations in Saigon were taken by English freelancer Anna Chittenden.

According to Anna, the L’Usine Building with unique French architecture which was built in 1890 is an ideal place to enjoy coffee, cakes, shopping and arts showroom.

If visitors want to taste Vietnamese dishes, they should not bypass Cuc Gach (Brick) restaurant. Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had been here.

Au Parc restaurant attracts foreign visitors with dishes prepared after American (California), Turkish and Swedish recipes.

Other renowned restaurants include The Refinery, Luc Binh and The Deck.

Anna says it is very enjoyable to enjoy a cocktail at Chill Skybar on the 26th floor of AB Building and watch Saigon at night.

According to Condé Nast Traveler, coming to Saigon, tourists should visit Noi (Floating) Temple which was built nearly three centuries ago.

Visitors should experience the two remaining places – the Post Office and Ben Thanh Market.
