Where is the best cafe shop in Ho Chi Minh Vietnam

Where is the best cafe shop in Ho Chi Minh Vietnam? Coffee was introduced to Vietnamese by French in 1857 and slowly became the main producer in Asia. If you haven’t heard, Vietnam is one of the top suppliers of coffee around the world. Vietnamese love for coffee is undeniable as you tour around the cities early in the morning or in the late afternoon, you can find locals regardless of their age, sitting on the sidewalks sipping their coffee.

I’d say sitting on a small plastic stool without table facing the street is amazing if you are into immersing yourself more to the Vietnamese culture not minding the ambiance and location. Though there are great places that are worth visiting as well. Checking out the best coffee shops in Ho Chi Minh City would be another great adventure; learning more about how locals interact, relax and be inspired by their creativity and architectural designs.
