3. Breeze Sky Bar
Built along the riverfront in 1925, the Majestic Hotel is exactly the kind of place where Agatha Christie would have imagined Hercule Poirot solving a murder mystery while sojourning in Cochinchina. The fifth-floor, all-day Breeze Sky Bar has the historical edge over the more recently developed M Bar on the eighth floor, if less of a view. With an eyeful of the Saigon River and garden style furniture, the bar oozes colonial romance.
