Nightlife in Ho Chi Minh City

  • Live tunes in the Acoustic Bar
    This bar is one of the best places to visit in Ho Chi Minh City if you are in for live music. The artists are inspired by legends such as Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon. This place is quite famous, so make sure to be there early – often the place is already packed by 11.00 p.m.
  • Great view at the Alto Heli Lounge Bar
    Definitely visit this place if you are looking for an amazing view over the city! Located on the 52nd floor of the Bitexco Financial Tower, this bar is the perfect place to relax with friends while sipping a cocktail and lounging in one of the modern sofas.
  • Visit the Chill Skybar
    This is another bar with a breathtaking view over Ho Chi Minh City. The Skybar is a great place to have drinks with friends. Live music is played during weekends, and a dress-code applies.
  • Attend a show at the Opera House
    If you want to get an evening full of culture and music, make sure to book tickets for a show in the opera house. Especially the Hon Viet, the soul of Vietnam, is an amazing show to attend. Great night out full of dance and traditional music.

Erron Beatrice

A customized trip with Beatrice

My wife and I engaged Beatrice to design an all day tour highlighting Florence’s art, architecture and history. Her experience in history and archaeology in addition to the art was a major advantage. She was incredibly knowledgeable about Florence and was able to customize a tour around our desires that could reveal a lot in a relatively short time. Beatrice arranged the schedule and destinations so that we could quickly move from one location to another.

Beatrice covered a huge amount, starting at the Baptistery, then moving to the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, where we could see in a virtual copy of the Duomo facade, revealing how some of the sculptures and ornament would have looked at eye level. There was a lot of extant art in this thoroughly enjoyable new museum. Next, we headed towards Piazza della Signoria and stopped at the Chiesa e Museo di Orsanmichele (which was a combination of a church, granary and office building for the Medici.) This is a one of a kind structure that really must be seen to be believed; the pillars are actually silos to collect and distribute grain through trap doors. Next we explored the Palazzo Vecchio, including the Studiolo, Cinquecento Hall and the Madonna del UFO. Before leaving, we went underground into the Roman theater beneath the building. Still doing more, we walked along what was left of the Roman perimeter walls under a store and on the street before walking to the remnants of the Roman amphitheater outside the ancient walls close to piazza Santa Croce. The arena’s foundation was used for the medieval structures, which were built curved in the same shape as the former Roman building. Lastly, we walked across the Ponte Vecchio to the Pitti Palace, where Beatrice led us on a tour of the late Medici palace which is positively dripping with art, including some either from and/or depicting the many royal families that they married into. All in all, it was a thorough, enjoyable historical, artistic and learning experience. Also, since we could not fit everything into a single tour (although we tried) Beatrice gave us some hints to see the blooming wisteria at the Bardini gardens and the zodiac in the church San Miniato al Monte.

Overall, we highly recommend Beatrice as a guide so that you can get the most out of your time in Florence. She could really bring the immensity of the history, art, culture and personalities into an easily-understood agenda and give us more ideas to explore on our own.

Anastasia Dave

Berlin's Wall & Main Historical Spots Tour by Bike

Dave is so much more than a guide.....he is truly a scholar! His interest, enthusiasm, and grasp of the complex and fascinating history of Berlin were beyond impressive. He was engaging, friendly and entertaining for my husband and me and our two teenagers. He customized the tour to fit our interests and shaped the day as it unfolded in order to provide more depth to the questions we had. All four of us learned so much and had such an enjoyable day. Dave gave us a memorable day in Berlin and taught us so much. You would be lucky to spend a day with him!
