Buddha Bar

Put aside all the controversy about its name, this bar is still a good stop. Actually, they are very famous among expats here in Saigon.

Moreover, the bar also offers leisure corners with board games for its customers. Yet sometimes it is not really a customer-oriented bar because some staff is not gentle and nice.

  1. all of these are so interesting to me. I don’t know that Sai Gon also has so many attractions in the night. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I prefer the bars wherever I come to. I love this vibrant atmosphere of Saigon nightlife. Surely If I have a chance to visit there, I will stay in district 2 for a while.

  3. Oh I do agree that it’s really difficult to go to bed early in Saigon cause there are so many awesome activities to do at night. Saigon is bustling and beautiful on its own way. Thanks for those amazing places you suggest. Saigon Outcast sounds great to me.

  4. I just have a feeling that a teenager like me is somewhat not eligible to visit these places. Adults would be more appropriate though. But thanks anyway.
