Rex Hotel



Rex Hotel

Posted By : admin/ 201 0

Located in the center of the city, the Rex Hotel has played an important part in Ho Chi Minh City’s history ever since its construction in the 1950s. Originally built by French colonial developers, it quickly became a focus of the social and military activities of American soldiers during the Vietnam War. It was from here that US military officers gave the daily press briefings that became known as “The Five O’Clock Follies,” recognized for their blatantly self-serving nature.

Today, with its very popular rooftop bar, the Rex still serves as an important gathering place. Corporate conclaves are held here, gamblers flock to its bingo parlor, and innumerable weddings are celebrated in the central court.
