Hidden spots of Ho Chi Minh City

When I first went up this staircase it was at night time and was a bit scary. In the UK I would never dream of walking into a place like this alone, with the stained walls and broken stairs. It looks like a prison or an asylum. But at the top is a beautiful restaurant, chill-out bar called La FenĂȘtre Soleil. It has gorgeous old French windows painted in pale blue and lovely wooden floor and a big chandelier. It's a really lovely place. Shame about the entrance though. It's the sort of place a tourist would never find and a lovely spot to chat and have a drink. I met with a friend here today and had a good gossip, with a big pot of tea.

Wow, what a gem you found! You are right, I don't think this would have been a place most would bother going to by the looks of the entrance.I bet they would have so many more stop in if they fixed it.
