It's a small hotel, with a small pool, a bar and fitness centre. However the rooms were really comfortable, nice design with huge windows which I absolutely love. There's a Japanese restaurant downstairs and a little cafe with great seats.

... brands, consumer behavior etc. From expensive jewelry, garments, groceries, toiletries to fresh produce and meat-fish were all available under one roof. As I understand, the concept of a supermarket is relatively new to the Vietnamese society who traditionally shop from little mom and pop stores near their homes. It is the younger generation as well as the well-heeled who are seen regularly at such high end, all-in-one stores. Undoubted the prices ...
... who live here. Hundreds and hundreds of pictures in the museum show the effects of how the disease has spread through generations causing them to have disabilities or more than likely disabilities to their future children born. It showed the prisons Americans use to run and how they use to torture Vietnamese men and women. Tourture bars, cages, cells and even a machine to decapatate people's heads. I have never been to a more graphical ...
