WHERE TO STAY

Elle (Canada) - - Escape -

This plush ho­tel has been an in­sti­tu­tion since it opened in 1959. For­eign jour­nal­ists used to sit on the roof ter­race to file sto­ries and es­cape the heat; now you can sip cham­pagne and look out over the opera house. Beat jet lag in a downy bed or hit the

quiet pool for some respite.

CARAVELLE HO­TEL IN HO CHI MINH

LA RÉSI­DENCE HÔ­TEL & SPA IN HUE

This property is truly an art-deco jewel. A for­mer res­i­dence of the French gover­nor, the bou­tique ho­tel, which over­looks the Per­fume River, has been re­stored to pre­serve its 1930s touches. Stroll the grounds, il­lu­mi­nated by fairy lights at night, or take a bi­cy­cle into town for cof­fee.
