Observe hyacinths dancing in Saigon

DesireHoneymoon
Effervescent. Turbulent. Saigon enchanted but tired.

The economic heart of Vietnam never sleeps and stays in incessant commotion. A small half an hour of the former French colony of Cochinchina, An Lam Saigon River is a soothing place, a retreat surrounded by nature. Besides, “An” means peace and “Lam” nature in Vietnamese. However, the arrival is a bit confusing. Our taxi looks for his way and give us a tour of the Ho Chi Minh suburbs without achieving to find his way. When we finally arrive, I look for the reception, without success. The arrival is a bit puzzling.The explanation is simple: An Lam Saigon River isn’t a hotel like the others. Here you’re treated as a guest star (a butler is assigned to you at your arrival) in an extraordinary place: the rooms and villas are nestled in a green setting.

Like a film set in the middle of an improbable jungle covered in vines and bamboo. It needed a daring dose or unconsciousness from this Vietnamese entrepreneur in his forties to transform his weekend house into a hotel three years ago. This house with a direct view of the Saigon River and its water hyacinths that seem to run on the water with the changing tides, is the owner of a Vietnamese furniture factory. The gamble was successful. Particularly thanks to the stroke of a genius of this boat made available that links Saigon’s center at lighting speed three times a day. Staying at An Lam, therefore, offers the opportunity to live the present Ho Chi Minh differently in its original version. Which confers a special status at An Lam. A little treasure far from the effervescent of Saigon. The breakfasts are gargantuan and overflowing with fresh juice. The restaurant also overlooks the Saigon River. Only downside, it’s a location that must be earned, the budget must follow.
