Caravelle Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
One of the most vivid photos from the Vietnam War is the 1975 image of refugees fleeing from a rooftop on one of the last helicopters leaving Saigon. The iconic building has since undergone construction, but you can still see the historic landmark from the rooftop bar of the Caravelle Hotel in what is now Ho Chi Minh City. The Saigon Saigon Bar is a piece of history, the same bar where war correspondents gathered, sinking gin and tonics and filing reports as Saigon fell to the communists under their very noses. Rooms, from $210; 19–23 Lam Son Sq.; 84-8/3823-4999; caravellehotel.com.
