Two Bedroom Apartment
During our stay here at Oakwood Residence Saigon we opted for the Two bed apartment which was perfect for our needs and provided a very comfortable nights sleep. With fantastic city views, aesthetically pleasing decor, spacious and comfortable furniture we almost didn’t want to leave.
It features large windows where I spent my mornings drinking fresh coffee while watching the city come awake around me, with a modern en-suite attached to the master bedroom which comes with a large king size bed and walk in wardrobe.
What you get
There is a second bedroom which also comes with a double bed, wardrobe and very spacious. Both rooms come with air-conditioning, flatscreen TV, safety deposit box and free toiletries. There is a second bathroom which has a shower, sink and toilet. A fully functioning kitchen, tea & coffee making facilities, large living and dining room with tables, chairs, sofa, writing desk, lamps, bluetooth sound bar & subwoofer, Wi-Fi and more storage space.
The Swimming Pool
They offer a superb private pool with its own decking complete with sun loungers to spend the day relaxing and soaking up the Vietnamese sun shine and topping up your tan. Only available to the residents it’s pretty quiet and most of the time I had it all to myself.
Perfect for those gym bunnies, this private gym comes complete with treadmills, weights, yoga mats, cycle machines and much more. It also has a fantastic view overlooking the pool and the city.
Binh Tay Market
This is one of the major official markets, located in Cholon which is essentially Chinatown. It has a similar feel to Ben Thanh and has even better prices. This back lane fresh food market, was probably my favorite part of visiting Binh Tay Market, and one of the top places I would recommend seeing in Saigon.
Museum of Ho Chi Minh
This is the perfect way to learn about the harrowing history that envelopes Vietnam even until this day.
Most of the displays show the history and making of Ho Chi Minh City, and also there are a number of Vietnamese culture exhibits as well. In the courtyard you will find tanks, jets and heavy artillery that was used during the war while inside you will read about some of the horrific stories that happened to the locals.
The Opera House
Considered to be one of the best representations of French colonial architecture in Saigon, the Opera House theater was built in 1897, and has been beautifully preserved. If you are interested, the Opera House hosts A O Show, a performance of traditional Vietnamese dance using bamboo.

The rooms were fantastic, we had a super comfortable nights sleep and really enjoyed watching the city from the large bay windows. The swimming pool was my favourite feature and the staff are so friendly, they can honestly not do enough for you to make your stay that little bit more comfortable than what it already is.

The city is very lively and the views from the top of the apartments are breathtaking and you will find yourself soaking them up the whole time you’re there. When you throw in the close proximity to the markets and all of the other attractions you are onto a winner!
