Coffee House Vietnam
It seems that the air conditioners are not enough to cool down the heat of Saigon; hence, Coffee House Vietnam made a decision to bring a 15 cm-thick beach vibe of white sand for its floor. More interestingly, each floor is not only decorated with forest and seascapes, but also equipped with sea waves and bird singing. There is nothing more fantastic than wiggling your toes deep into the sand while taking a sip of a drink. While the streets in Ho Chi Minh City hum with life at night, Coffee House Vietnam is supposed to be an ideal place to kick back and escape from the noise.
