The Myst Dong Khoi

Feb 25, 2019

With its whiter-than-white façade, hanging plants and asymmetrical windows, the Myst has been a breath of fresh air for Saigon’s ever-rising, but rather generic, skyline since opening in 2017. There’s an equally singular feel to the eccentric yet elegant interiors that merge a cornucopia of lost artefacts, collectibles and aged handicrafts, all of which pay tribute to the mercurial history of Saigon. Bonus: every room features a balcony with a spa-bath (hence the hanging plants— they’re curtains). themystdongkhoihotel.com; doubles from US$195.
