The Cafe Apartment was the sole reason why we’re returning to Vietnam once again! last year we visited Hanoi (which i have yet to blog *shifty eyes*) and this time we’re back exploring the south – Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC)!
The Cafe Apartment is a 9-storey building which used to be an old apartment housed government and military personnel before turning into a structure of cafes, boutiques, beauty parlors, bookstore and co-working space. each space has their own personality and we’re so inspired by how they decorated the facade.
we took the lift up (3000 VND which will be waived on the bill which we forgot to) to the 9th floor and wandered through each floor through the vintage stairs. and we just randomly chose cafes based on their aesthetic. we had light beverages at The Maker one night and had late lunchy at 8ielts Cafe on the next late noon, both had balconies looking out on Walking Street . and the Walking Street will eventually lead to the Ho Chi Minh statue and the Ho Chi Minh City Hall Square. which we only found out on our third day, we’re completely baffled at our directionless *smack forehead*.
we do think The Cafe Apartment is worth a visit when you’re in HCMC! it’s a great way to the spend the day or night leisurely and get inspired!
